STLCC Men’s Stellar Season Ends in Region XVI Final

March 12, 2012

Ryun Davis scored 33 points in his last game with STLCC
Saturday in an 87-75 loss to Penn Valley in the Region
XVI Tournament championship game. Davis was named
the Region XVI Player of the Year.

At the beginning of the season, if you were to tell Randy Albrecht and his coaching staff that his team would win 23 games and end the season in the national rankings, he would probably take that.

Saturday, his team just missed doing one better.

The Archers were eliminated in the Region XVI championship game, 87-75 to Metropolitan Community College-Penn Valley.

Sophomore forward Ryun Davis (McCluer North), in what became his final game with STLCC, did his best to keep the Archers in the game as he scored a game-high 33 points.

The Archers remained competitive early, trailing 36-30 at the half, but Penn Valley produced a 51-point second half that kept STLCC at bay.

The difference in the final score was more than covered by the free-throw differential between the two teams. Penn Valley converted 34 free-throw attempts for the game, a significant advantage over the Archers’ 20 points from the charity stripe.

The Archers entered the game having won four consecutive games against the Scouts, dating back to last season, one of the longest such runs by either team during Albrecht’s 35 years with STLCC.

The Archers bid adieu to what was a very productive sophomore class over the course of their STLCC careers. In addition to Davis, the Archers graduate sophomores Clyde Jeffers (Ladue), Toraino Hellems (Oakville), Darryn Anderson (Hazelwood Central), Jordan Jones (Marquette), Kyle Rice (Kirkwood) and Harvey Mills (Highland Springs, Va.). Hellems, Jones and Davis, who played for Albrecht last year at Meramec, graduated with an overall record of 52-15 at STLCC.
