Posted: Friday, Mar 7th, 2014






The Cabrillo College Seahawks season came to an end in the Sweet 16 of the California Community College Athletic Association NorCal playoffs against Chabot College 76-73 Wednesday night in Hayward.

Warren Jackson led the Hawks with 24 points, 20 of them coming in the second half, and Allen Wilcher added 23 points, but it wasn’t enough as a final-second heave from Latrell Wilson fell short of finding its mark and tying the game up.

Wilson finished the game with 13 points and the Seahawks finished the year at 20-9.
