The Sacramento Kings shot an amazing 55 percent and went 11-of-19 from three point range as they knocked of the Golden State Warriors at Sleep Train Arena last night 131-127.
DeMarcus Cousins led seven Kings in double figures with 24 points as the Kings broke a five-game losing streak. For the Warriors it appeared a lost night at the arena would turn into found gold as they rallied from a 15 point third quarter deficit to take a late lead. But, the hot-shooting of Marcus Thornton and the Kings proved to be too much. Thornton scored 18 points off the bench including two back-breaking three's with under two minutes to go to ice the game.
With the win the the Kings go to 8-17 on the season while the Warriors drop to 17-9.
Four Butte College Roadrunner football players will be continuing their college careers. This week Roadrunners Geoff Swaim, Willie Creear, Robby Kendall and Jesse Warawa all signed national letters of intent to play at the next level.
Swaim, who had already agreed to be a Texas Longhorn last off-season after an official visit, made it official with his signature. He will join Mack Brown's program in Austin. Swaim is a pass catcher, but attracted Longhorn coaches on film with his ability to block and should help the Longhorns right away.
Swaim's older brother, Mychal, plays at Eastern Michigan and will be joined by Willie Creear who was a solid cover corner for the Roadrunners. Robby Kendall was a important component to the Roadrunners defensive back-field and he will be attending Sacramento State. And, Jesse Waraway was a stand-out safety for Butte and he will attend the University of Sioux Falls.
