College wrap

Time now for some college news this morning as teams get back from the holiday break:

Mitchell makes history
2012 Mount Si HS grad Josh Mitchell and his Oregon State University Beavers football team played in the Valero Alamo Bowl in San Antonio, TX, last night against Texas, and Mitchell saw action in the game for OSU, making him the first former Wildcat football player during the Charlie Kinnune era to play in a major college football bowl game. Unfortunately for Mitchell and the Beavers, things did not go well, as the Longhorns rallied from a halftime deficit to stun OSU 31-27 in front of a large pro-Texas crowd; the UT campus is just a short drive up Interstate 35 in Austin.

Humboldt women’s hoops return from long layoff to score win
Humboldt State’s women’s basketball team returned from their long holiday break and delivered a 92-77 home win in Arcata, CA, over nonconference foe Simpson from nearby Redding, CA.

Senior Caitie Richards, from Snoqualmie and a 2009 Mount Si grad, scored 14 points on 5-11 from the floor (3-6 from beyond the three-point line) for Humboldt. Richards also had five assists as the win lifted the ‘Jacks to a 7-3 record.

Portland men’s hoops shocked on home floor by Texas-Pan American
The University of Portland Pilots men’s basketball team fell at home to Texas-Pan American last night 56-52. Portland held the lead at half but saw UTPA rally in the second half to escape with the shocker.

Junior Tanner Riley, from North Bend and a 2010 Mount Si HS grad, played nine minutes off the bench and scored two points. Their next game is next Thursday at San Diego to open the WCC schedule, and it is scheduled to be televised via Comcast SportsNet Northwest (Comcast channel 179) using the feed from Fox Sports Net San Diego. Game time is 8:00 p.m.
