Basketball season for the community colleges continues for two of the four local teams, as the Ohlone men and Chabot women won their North Regional final round games to advance to the California Community College Athletic Association State Championships. Chabot men and Ohlone women saw their seasons come to an end in their post-season losses.

Ohlone men, ranked number 1 in the state, advanced to the state championships for the second-consecutive season with its 75-65 win over the eighth-seeded Yuba 49ers on Ohlone's home floor. The Renegades won the game partly on the strength of a 12-0 run in the second half to break a 44-44 tie.

Reggie Jones led Ohlone with 25 points; Lavon Gray scored 15 and pulled down 12 rebounds; and Ronnie Sawyer had 14 points.

The state championship for the men takes place on Friday, March 12, through Sunday, March 14, at Cal Lutheran University in Thousand Oaks. Ohlone, as the top seed from the North, takes on the South's fourth seed, Saddleback, at 3 p.m. in the opening round on Thursday.…
