The San Francisco Rams were nearly upsetted by the Foothill Owls during the Owls last home stand on Friday night as they narrowly edged out the Owls 69-65 in the final minutes of the game. The team’s offensive surge in the second half of the game seemed overshadowed by the fact that the Owls were incapable of keeping possession of the ball in the closing minutes of the game. Matt McAndrews led the Owls with 29 points while Blake Henry and Joe Pittocchi added 11 and 10, respectively.

CAN’T KEEP THE STREAK ALIVE

The Foothill Owls Men’s Basketball team entered their matchup against the Rams having won six out of their seven home games and having won their last four home games. A streak that seemed like it would never end came crashing on Friday, as the Owls simply didn’t play like they usually do. The Owls are considered one of the better offenses in the league in terms of points scored and field goal percentages at home. However, the offense with such potential was lacking this time as the Owls failed to score past 70 points for the first time this season at home, due to lackluster offensive performances and turnovers. Alex Gil-Fernandez, who entered the contest having scored at least 15 or more points in each of his last four home games and even scoring 38 points in one game, managed to score only eight points with two missed free throws.

THE OTHER SIDE

The Rams equally had just has much trouble as the Owls on Friday, as at times it seemed like the Rams were adopting the offensive style of play that the Owls had been playing with throughout the game. In total, the Rams only scored 69 points, which is the first time they have failed to live up their their offensive firepower; an offense that averages 94 points per game.

BRIGHT SPOTS

If the Owls can take some positives away from Friday’s loss, they are likely the defense and the defensive stops. The Owls can proudly say that they are the only team in the entire league to hold the Rams and their explosive offense to a measly 69 points.

UP NEXT

The Foothill Owls will attempt to get back on track when they play in their last home game for the 2017-2018 season against Ohlone College on Wednesday.
