Coaches Comments:

Both the A and B boys teams played well this weekend in Cordova.  The B Boys team went 1-1, avenging a previous loss to Cordova, while the A boys went 2-0.

The B boys won a close game Friday, making a free throw at the end of the game to break a tie.  They ran out of gas on Saturday, after overcoming an 11 point deficit to eventually take the lead.  They couldn’t hold on, however.

The A boys won both Friday and Saturday night by double digits.  The boys played well, extending their record against Cordova to 4-0 this year.

Highlights:

For the B boys, Justin Barnes played well.  Justin hit a free throw at the end of the game Friday to give Valdez the win. Justice Reed played his best game of the season on Saturday.

For the A boys, Josh Baczuk, Dennis Mott, Allen Watson, and Landen Case played really well.  Dennis was a force inside, while Josh, Allen, and Landen all had really good offensive games.

As a whole, we played really good defense on Saturday, holding Cordova to 15 pts.
