Mason Railsback capped three good days at the Mendocino tournament with another big performance for the College of the Redwoods men’s basketball team in a 79-69 win over Siskiyous on Saturday.
Railsback scored a team-high 18 points to key a second-half rally that saw the Corsairs overcome a six-point halftime deficit on the way to their second straight win.
The former Arcata Tiger was named to the all-tournament team.
Another former Arcata Arcata Tiger, Kai Purcell, also scored 18 points in the win, while Trey Neff and Jett Cheong each finished with 16 points.
“Kai made a couple of crucial 3s down the stretch,” Bisio said. “He was a warrior. He bit off a big assignment on the defensive end today too and played magnificently.”
A third Arcata High graduate also had a big impact in the win.
With the win, CR closed out tournament play 2-1 and improved to 3-5 on the season.
The Corsairs will return home to begin a five-game homestand, which begins against Simpson University JV on Nov. 27.
