Blue Devils host Les Curry hoops tournament beginning Thursday

From page B1 | December 13, 2012 |

While winning has become an integral part of the fun this season, the Davis High boys basketball is exciting to watch every time it takes the court because of its high-octane offense.

Averaging 93 points per outing over the first seven games of the campaign, the Blue Devils have gone 5-2, with all games thus far played away from the DHS gym.

But this weekend, when it rains, it pours …

In hosting the Les Curry Invitational Tournament for the 10th consecutive season, the Devils will give local fans three opportunities in three days to see their high-scoring heroes, starting with Thursday’s 7 p.m. tournament opener against Colfax.

The 5-2 Falcons, an impressive Division III squad, is one of several teams that will make the Curry tournament a can’t miss event.

Other strong teams in the field include Chico (8-0), Christian Brothers, Will C. Wood and a Center group that is winless this year, but is coming off of deep postseason runs.

“We like this field a lot,” DHS head coach Dan Gonzalez told The Enterprise earlier in the season. “It’s different from past years.”

The tournament begins at 4 p.m. Thursday with a matchup between Wood and Center, which is followed by a 5:30 p.m. contest between Chico and American Canyon (2-5). After the Davis/Colfax encounter, Christian Brothers takes on Natomas (0-3) to end the evening.

Notes: Vanden won last year’s event, while the Devils won their own tournament in 2010. … The invitational is named for former DHS basketball coach Les Curry, who was the father of Blue Devil and UCLA legend Denise Curry. … Four more games are set for Friday, with another quartet of contests on Saturday, culminating with a 4:30 p.m. title tilt.
