The Chabot men's basketball team showed its typical resolve in splitting tight road games last week.
The Gladiators fought back from a 12-point halftime deficit in a loss at Foothill, 61-60, in yet another Coast-North showdown on Jan. 24. Chabot also rallied past Ohlone 72-71 on Jan. 22, after trailing by eight at halftime against an upset-minded foe.
Against Foothill, always tough to beat at home, Chabot's Izayah Talmadge came off the bench to notch team highs with 16 points and seven rebounds. He converted a tidy 5 of 7 from the floor. Japjit Gill added 13 points, going 5 of 5 from the free throw line. Akili Daniels and Micah Webster both had eight points.
LOOK AHEAD: The Gladiators (13-7, 4-2) enter another tough week in seemingly a five-team fight for second place in the conference. State No. 1 CCSF (20-0, 6-0) leads the Coast-North. Chabot can take another step forward at College of San Mateo at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 29 in Hayward. Tipoff is 7 p.m. The Gladiators also travel to CCSF on Friday, Jan. 31.
