When I was covering community college basketball in Southern California a generation ago, I don't think I ever remember covering a game where both teams final score stopped in the 70s. And that was before the shot clock and the 3-point line.
But JC basketball there and then was all about scoring, getting up and down the court and flying around. Play a zone? Only Cypress College did that, and the Chargers were looked down upon. Of course, they won some titles, but that was beside the point. It was all about showcasing for the next level.
