Coach Scott Ward reports….
I am very proud of the way our boys came out and played tonight. Our defense in the first half was as good as I have seen all year, holding Waterville to 9 first half points. Our press was also very effective and gave us many opportunities at uncontested lay-ups. Anytime you can go into Waterville and limit their scoring on their floor is a real accomplishment.
Offensively our scoring was led by Miguel Lopez with 13, Jacob Cleveland with 12, and Ammon Simmons with 7 points. All 9 players scored at least two points, which I believe is a great example of how we are maturing as a team and sharing the ball. This is the second game in a row that all 9 players have contributed in the scoring column.
Defensively Nathan Coggins, Danny Luna, and Javier Guillen did a fantastic job in the interior not allowing any easy baskets and crashing the boards. Michael Valencia, David Sadano, and Colton Hodges also had great games defensively and in the press creating many turnovers and converting them into points.
This was the second and final regular season game against Waterville in which we finished with a 2-0 record. Our next game is at home against Soap Lake on February 10, at 4:30 PM.
