Colony ran out of gas a bit in the fourth quarter of a physical matchup with Long Beach Poly, as Poly’s bench helped it slowly expand the lead in the fourth. The Titans didn’t do themselves any favors from the free-throw line, only hitting 7 of 14 foul shots in the final period. Colony also went 6:21 without a field goal at one point in the quarter.
Long Beach Poly’s full-court press defense, which forced 35 Colony turnovers during the first three periods, spurred a 6-0 run that has the Jackrabbits up 52-45 with just over 5 minutes left. Both teams have had issues holding the ball against the in-your-face pressure defense that the other employs.
