Sasquatch Win With Heavy Hearts

By The Spokesman-Review
 

The Community Colleges of Spokane Sasquatch were no doubt happy with their 80-69 double overtime win against Columbia Basin Wednesday night, but the win was secondary in the minds of those affiliated with the program.

CCS freshman Kris Hampton’s mother was killed in a car accident near Wallace, Idaho, earlier in the day while she was en route to watch Spokane take on CBC at Spokane Falls. Hampton is from Wallace.

Spokane coach Sam Brasch didn’t have any details of the accident.

“It’s a real bittersweet night. You know - I’m happy for our kids because we played hard tonight. But the entire time I’m coaching this game, in the back of my head I’m thinking, `with what’s happened to Kris and his family, this doesn’t mean a thing,’ ” Brasch said.

“Kris is in our thoughts and prayers,” Brasch said.

Against Columbia Basin (7-4 NWAACC, 13-9), Spokane (5-6, 8-15) outscored the Hawks 13-2 in the final overtime session. The score was tied 59-59 at the end of regulation and 67-67 at the end of the first overtime.

Big shots by Chad Goldsmith (23 points, 11 rebounds) and Damian Schug (8 points) help pace CCS in the end.

“Given the circumstances, this game was played under, I thought the kids battled and battled hard,” Brasch said. “Tonight, they just wouldn’t give up.”

CCS concludes its season Saturday at Spokane Community College at 8 p.m. against Big Bend.
