Blue Devil boys outlast Vallejo

VACAVILLE — Vallejo, Davis High’s opponent on Thursday at the Bulldog boys basketball tournament, was bigger and faster than the Blue Devils.

The Apaches used those advantages to lead by as many as 15 points in the first half.

But eventually DHS’ depth and endurance turned the tide its way and, after a 59-point second half, the Devils came out on top, 93-78.

Davis outscored Vallejo 32-17 in the final period to improve to 4-1. The Apaches fell to 3-2.

“We just kept plugging away,” said Blue Devil head coach Dan Gonzalez. “We slowly wore them down. That’s what The System is designed to do, but when a team hangs with you that long, it’s tough not to get discouraged.”

Instead of getting discouraged, DHS got hot, nailing a ridiculous 72 percent of its 3-pointers (13-of-18) in the second half. Four different Devils had at least three makes from behind the arc.

“I really feel like we’ve got great balance in this team, more so than in some of our other years,” Gonzalez said. “We have more than just one guy for teams to key on.”

On Thursday, senior Ben Crook had his best game of the season by far, draining four treys on his way to 17 points.

“(Crook) did a great job, he was everywhere (Thursday),” Gonzalez said. “He had three steals and three rebounds and he brought us a lot of energy.”

Davis’ leading scorer Brandon Strong, another senior, also chipped in 17, nine of them coming on his three 3-pointers.

Sophomore Glen Welch connect four times from long distance to finish with 12 points, senior Brett Bloomfield had 11 to go with five assists and Ben Prussel, Welch’s 10th-grade classmate, made a pair of treys among his 10 points. Matt Michael led the locals in rebounds (six) and canned three 3-pointers for nine points.

Ryan Kreidler, the third in the Blue Devils’ trio of strong sophomores, got the start and took advantage of the opportunity by posting four steals and four steals to go along with his six points. Logan Davis added four key offensive rebounds.

The victory sets up a Friday matchup with Vanden at 8 p.m., and Gonzalez said the Vikings will be another tough contest:

“They looked good (in beating Armijo on Thursday). They are another team with height and speed so ir will take a total team effort from our guys.”
