OCEANSIDE - Osi Nwachukwu led the Marauder men's basketball team with 30 points and added 11 rebounds, but it was not enough as the Marauder men's basketball team lost its fourth game in its last five losing to San Diego Miramar, 72-65, in the third place game of the MiraCosta College Tournament.
It was the second time in a row that AVC lost in the third place game of its tournament.
The Marauders led 37-33 at halftime but were outscored 39-28 in the second half. AVC shot a dismal 1-for-12 from 3-point range while the Jets netted eight 3-pointers.
