Both CCSF hoops programs claim league titles

There was no stopping the City College of San Francisco basketball teams in the 2016-17 regular season.

The women’s team went 12-0 to repeat as Cost-North champions. The Rams are undefeated in conference play over the last two seasons.

CCSF finished its season with a 94-55 win over Ohlone on Friday to finish 25-3 overall.

Gabrielle Vigil scored 34 points and Nahrie Pierce logged a double-double with 19 points and 12 rebounds.

Vigil won conference MVP and was first-team All-State, while Pierce made the All-Conference as well as the All-State second teams.

City College tips off its playoff run Friday against Laney (17-10). The Rams will be the No. 3 seed in the NorCal Bracket.

The CCSF men’s basketball team had a more exciting finish to its season by beating Ohlone 68-65 on Friday to finish the regular season with a 26-2 record and a league title.

Conference MVP Zachary Copeland netted 18 points in the season finale, but it was his last three that mattered most as the guard found space and hit the shot from deep with less than three seconds remaining to secure the victory.

The Rams are the No. 1 seed in the NorCal bracket and will play the winner of a Cosumnes River/Cabrillo play-in game. The game will be played on Saturday.
