NWAACC HOOPS - Spencer Clayton has big game vs. Yakima Valley
The Mt. Hood CC men's basketball team won three of four games at the Northwest championship tournament over the weekend, finishing with a 73-60 win over Yakima Valley in Tuesday's fifth-place matchup.
'Not many teams get to finish the year with a win,' Mt. Hood coach Geoff Gibor said. 'We felt like we were as talented a team as any up here.'

Clayton finished with a team-high 26 points on 13 of 17 (.765) shooting to go along with 12 rebounds and three blocked shots....
