Cape Fear Community College dropped back-to-back games for the first time since early November following a 110-80 setback to Spartanburg Methodist in the Sea Devils final home game of the regular season in men's basketball action on Saturday.

Calvin Davis led Cape Fear with 22 points and TJ Evans added 16 for the Sea Devils, who dropped their first game at the Schwartz Center in 15 tries this year.

"We just flat out got outworked today," said CFCC Coach Ryan Mantlo. "They played extremely well so you have to give them credit. It's back to the drawing board for us as we need to get rolling again headed into the stretch run."

Cape Fear dropped to 7-2 in conference and 22-7 overall. The Sea Devils play in their regular season finale at Brunswick Community College on Thursday, Feb. 25.

Desaree Green recorded team-high honors for the fourth time in six games with 24 points as No. 10 Cape Fear Community College rolled past Denmark Tech 96-72 on Saturday afternoon.

"We had a great overall effort today," said CFCC Coach Chris Harrisa. "It's always a tough place to play and we were in control the whole way. I'm really proud of how tough our post play was and give credit to our guards for getting the ball inside and driving to the basket."

The Sea Devils continued its impressive run through conference, improving to 11-0 in Region 10 play and 21-1 overall. Cape Fear closes their weekend trip to South Carolina with a date at Spartanburg Methodist on Sunday.
