The Pima Community College men's basketball team (13-7, 7-5 in ACCAC) played another tight-nipped game against Tohono O'odham Community College (8-12, 6-6) on Wednesday in Sells, AZ.

The Aztecs defeated the Jegos 96-91 behind the red-hot shooting of freshman Alize Travis.

He finished with 13 points off the bench. He went 3 for 5 from three-point range for the game and 4 for 4 from the free throw line in the final 30 seconds.

The Aztecs trailed 48-42 at halftime but came back to outscore the Jegos 54-43 in the second half.

Sophomore Deion James (Empire HS) finished the game with 16 points.

The Aztecs split the head-to-head meetings with the Jegos. Pima fell 85-82 at the West Campus gymnasium back in November.

The Aztecs will be back at the West Campus gymnasium on Saturday when they host Chandler-Gilbert Community College at 4:00 p.m.
