City College of San Francisco Men’s Basketball Wins California State Title!

The City College of San Francisco Rams (32-1) win the State Championship game this afternoon over the West Valley College Vikings (28-4), 91-66, in Lemoore, California on the campus of West Hills College-Lemoore.

Naseem Gaskin led San Francisco with 20 points on 7-of-15 from the field, with 14 rebounds and four assists in 29 minutes, while Wrenn Robinson added 18 points and Emmett Neal put in 12 points.

The West Valley Vikings had two players score in double-figures, Mahmoud Fofana (16) and Quinn Denker (14).

The Rams, who are a California basketball dynasty, were just too much for West Valley.

San Francisco head coach Justin Labagh now has led the Rams to four State Championships in his 18 seasons at the helm of the program. The four State Titles for Labagh makes him the second California Community College head coach to win four state championships. He joins Hall of Fame and former Riverside City College and Pasadena City College head coach Jerry Tarkanian with the four state titles.

“It’s nice to be in the same sentence with his name,” Labagh said postgame. “I got two assistants when we started this 18 years ago and we just wanted to take City College of San Francisco and make it the best program in the state. That was our goal, and after today I think we can say we accomplished it after 18 years.”
