OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – The Johnson County Community College men’s basketball team celebrated sophomore day with a 61-59 win over Highland Community College on Saturday afternoon at JCCC Gymnasium. The victory snapped a season-long six-game losing streak, gave the Cavaliers a season sweep over the Scotties and assured them a spot in the Region VI D-II playoffs.
Sophomore Jackson Sublette, who transferred to JCCC from Highland, scored his final two of a game-high 16 points in the final minute to give JCCC the win over his former school. Jackson also led JCC four 3-point baskets, and was 4-of-4 at the line.
Johnson County trailed most of the second half and was down seven with seven to play, but the Cavaliers defense forced seven Highland turnovers down the stretch. Johnson County freshman Danzel Wright capitalized on the Scotties charity. Wright scored eight of his 14 points in the five minutes of the game.
Sophomore Zach Nelson also had a big day in his final home appearance for the Cavaliers. Nelson scored 15 points on 7-of-9 shooting, and led the Cavaliers with seven rebounds, five steals and three assists.
