COSTA MESA, Calif. – Shane Traver's layup with 8:25 remaining in the game gave the Hawks a slim 47-46 lead.
But Vanguard grabbed the lead and didn't let go handing SDC the conference loss 66-60 Saturday night.
With the loss, the Hawks fall to 5-16 overall and 0-13 in GSAC play. The Lions improve to 15-11 on the season and 7-6 in conference.
Derrick Thompson (SR/San Diego, CA)'s 3-pointer kept the score close with 2:23 left as the Hawks trailed by one. The Lions finished the game on a 8-2 run to secure the win.
Thompson scored a game-high 19 points and Peter Beale-Wirsing (SR/San Diego, CA) added 18 and grabbed eight rebounds.
SDC took their first lead at 7-6 after trailing 6-0 to start the game. But Vanguard would take control of the half and lead by as much as seven with 1:44 left in the half. Rafael Rodriguez (SR/Santiago, Dominican Republic) added two free throws before Prince Arceneuax added a jumper and Thompson hit a 3-pointer to end the half on a 7-0 run to tie the game at the break.
Both teams traded leads throughout the early stages of the second half before the Lions took the lead for good at the eight-minute mark.
The Hawks will travel to The Master's College on Tuesday before hosting Westmont next Saturday for the last home game of the season. Tipoff against the Warriors is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
