GLENDALE — Things got a lot tougher for the members of the Glendale Community College men's basketball team in their bid to win the Western State Conference's South Division title.
With a chance to climb near the top of the division, the Vaqueros instead had a call go against them in the waning seconds of their key division contest against host Citrus College on Wednesday night.
Citrus made the second of two free throws with two seconds remaining to hand the Vaqueros a 76-75 defeat.
Glendale, which came into the game in third place, dropped to 16-9, 5-4 in the division. Citrus, which won the division championship last season, improved to 21-5, 7-3. Santa Monica City College entered Wednesday's contest against College of the Canyons in first place at 16-7, 6-2. Canyons came in 13-11, 5-3 and in fourth place.
