It was a tough road challenge for the No. 11 Pima men’s basketball team (7-2, 2-2 in ACCAC), who took on the No. 17-ranked Glendale Community College Gouchos (8-1, 3-1) on Wednesday night.
The Aztecs ran away with the game late in the last period, going on an 11-4 run with 3:27 remaining, handing Glendale its first loss of the season 91-75.
“It was a good team win. Our strength is our bigs and we finally got the ball where we needed to,” Pima coach Brian Peabody said. “Beating a nationally ranked team will help our confidence moving forward.”
