Talented Huskies too much for short-handed Blue Devil boys

The Davis High boys basketball team knew it was going to be a hard transition after it lost guard Drew Gnos to a knee injury during Monday’s game against Jesuit.

Eagles overwhelm short-handed DHS boys

The Davis High boys basketball team knew coming in that facing Pleasant Grove and its talented 6-foot-8 big man Marquese Chriss would be tough. But doing it with several rotation players out with an illness was just too much for the host Blue Devils to overcome in an 86-62 loss on Wednesday. DHS (6-12) dropped its […]

Kevin Austin finds harmony between basketball and music

Kevin Austin didn’t even have to use a crossover to dust the Napa High player trying to stay in front of him. He caught the defender on his heels, and was a blur of white and blue as he ran by him. It looked far too easy. By the time Napa figured out what had happened and […]

Woodcreek too hot for Devil boys to handle in Curry championship contest

When the Davis High boys basketball team plays a game, there’s never a shortage of points. But in Saturday’s championship game of the Les Curry Invitational, the host Blue Devils were on the wrong end of a high-scoring affair, falling to a talented Woodcreek squad, 99-59. The Timberwolves’ lethal inside-outside duo of 6-foot-9 freshman Jordan Brown […]

DHS runs Napa out of the gym

It’s pretty hard to beat a basketball team that shoots 19-of-51 from downtown. It’s even harder to beat that team when it also forces 30 turnovers. Napa found that out on Tuesday night at the Davis High gym. After going through a cold stretch at last weekend’s Bronco Invitational, the Blue Devil boys bounced back with […]

Blue Devil boys System-atically dismantle visiting Argonaut

As a Foundation Game, Monday’s victory didn’t officially count for the Davis High boys basketball team’s record, but nevertheless, head coach Dan Gonzalez has to be happy with the result. The System, the Blue Devils’ breakneck-paced, run-and-gun offense, ran like a well-oiled machine at the DHS gym. Eight different Devils made 3-point shots and the team […]

DHS boys might be young, but they have experience

Last season, the Davis High boys basketball team was oh-so-close to securing its second consecutive Sac-Joaquin Section playoff spot. Though they have graduated some key players off of that squad — like standouts Brandon Strong, Matt Michael and Ben Crook — 16th-year head coach Dan Gonzalez thinks the Blue Devils have the talent to make […]
