Falcons getting closer but fall to Columbia again

The Falcons opened the 81st Annual Modesto Tournament on Thursday against Columbia College - the #16 team in California with a sparkling 6-0 early-season record - after losing to the same team a week ago in Sonora by 20 points.  The Falcons hung close and trailed by one at halftime before the Claim Jumpers pulled away to win this time by just seven points.  Sophomore Zethan Dumpson recorded his first double-double of the season with 14 points and 10 rebounds.  Freshman Grant Bellis also scored 14 points, while freshman Gavyn Kamminga recorded his fist double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds.
