YVCC men routed by Spokane

​Yakima Herald Republic

YAKIMA, Wash. — Since there was little good to be seen from a Yakima Valley men’s standpoint Wednesday night, coach Ray Funk had little good to say.

As one would expect after the Yaks surrendered 69 second-half points en route to a 114-83 loss to Spokane in an East Region game in Sherar Gym.

“Unacceptable,” Funk said of his team’s defensive performance, especially during the final 20 minutes. “And aside from Anthony Robbs (who totaled 29 points, nine rebounds and four assists), our three other forwards combined to score seven points and get nine rebounds.”

Cleveringa and Clark combined for 38 points but Treasure Valley had five players reach double figures, led by Dontese Tower’s 18 points, as the Chukars defeated Yakima Valley 79-68 in an NWAC East Region men’s basketball game.

Yakima Valley men halt skid

​Yakima Herald Republic

PENDLETON, Ore. — The losing streak is over, which means Ray Funk’s beard is coming off.

Funk, head coach of a Yakima Valley men’s team that snapped a 12-game slide Friday night with an 82-69 East Region victory over Blue Mountain, reported that he’d already removed much of his facial growth. He had vowed to not shave until the Yaks ended their skid.

“I’ve taken care of the first layer,” Funk said. “I’ll finish things off tomorrow before we play Treasure (Valley).”
