According to coach Dave Ancrum, the game against John Adams was a good opportunity for the Cavs to work on spacing, taking time off the clock and running plays.

“They still need a lot of work on their spacing and defense,” he added.

The Cavs’ next game is Friday, Dec. 12, against Global Youth at the Redding Christian Tournament at 5 p.m.

Their next home game is Tuesday, Dec 16, against Woodland Christian at 7:30 p.m.
