The boys’ varsity basketball team took the court, Dec. 20, ready to battle for third place in the Victory Christian Tournament against Stockton Christian.
Having lost to Bear River the night before in the semifinal game, the Cavs were determined to fight.
And fight they did. They took third place in a 77-64 win over Stockton Christian.
Freshman Rick Barros led the team with 35 points, including six 3-pointers.
He said this isn’t his highest scoring record, however.
“I made 50 points in a game at my old school,” Barros said.
Freshman Cole Johnson scored 13 points, while freshman Jayce McCain scored 11.
The boys also fouled a lot during the game, for a total of 15 fouls.
Freshman B.J. Askew fouled out. He declined comment on the number of fouls.
However, he was proud of his teammates for passing the ball well, he said.
“We also did a great job rebounding and playing good defense,” Askew said.
Coach Dave Ancrum is very happy for the team.
“They played well, with good defense on Stockton’s biggest player (6’8”) and their guard,” he said.
The boys’ next game is Monday, Dec. 22, at Mesa Verde High School against Linden at 5 p.m.
