Devil boys go down in Flames

LODI — Who\’da thunk it?

\n

Two weeks ago the Davis High boys basketball team was cruising along at 7-1 — winners of its own Les Curry Invitational and thinking the sky\’s the limit.

\n

Suddenly — thanks in part to Wednesday night\’s 60-53 nonleague defeat at Lodi — the Blue Devils stand at 7-7 and are losers of six straight games.

\n

Watching his team get pounded in the second period, 27-9, by the Flames, DHS head coach Dan Gonzalez said he knew his players would have to get used to playing without injured leading scorer Tim Mohr. But he didn\’t expect his vaunted defense and the sputtering offense to shut down in unison.

\n

“We got slaughtered in that second period,” Gonzalez said. “They got hot and we were stagnant. All of a sudden, we were really cold.”

\n

Which, on this night, was a little surprising.

\n

The Devils have been shooting around 32 percent all year, but the locals hit half their first-period shots on Wednesday and shot 42 percent (20-of-47) for the game. In fact, DHS played a strong first quarter and built a 19-8 lead in the first eight minutes.

\n

After that, halftime couldn\’t come fast enough. At one point, Lodi ripped off 11 straight points. Davis\’ shots stopped dropping and the Flames pulled away to a 35-27 advantage at intermission.

\n

Lodi, which upped its record to 10-5, was led by forward Justin Panzarello with 18 points.

\n

The Blue Devils were paced by swingman Bryce Thompson with 16 points. Kevin Sorensen added 11 points, Tyler Sousa had 10 and Elvis Bikoba tallied eight. Guard Graham McDaniel (five points) and Tyler DeLaughder (three) rounded out the scoring for the locals.

\n

DeLaughder has a season\’s personal-best eight rebounds as DHS pulled down 30 boards compared to 27 for the Flames.

\n

“We just can\’t afford to have quarters like that,” Gonzalez said, knowing his team will be missing the 14 points a night provided by Mohr.

\n

The senior forward chipped his wrist in last week\’s ESPN/iScore Classic in San Diego County. Mohr is expected to miss three to four weeks.

\n

The Devils have one more game — Saturday at 7 p.m. at Dixon (10-2). The Rams just beat the Flames in their Ram Jam Tournament last Thursday, 52-46.

\n

Then the fun starts …

\n

Davis opens Delta Valley Conference play next Wednesday at home against Grant. The Pacers (7-7) join Monterey Trail as new teams in the DVC, replacing Valley and Kennedy on the Blue Devils\’ schedule. Next Friday, DHS travels to Laguna Creek. All DVC games are at 7 p.m.

\n

Notes: Comcast SportsNet announced this week the it will televise one of the Blue Devil boys basketball games, albeit delayed. Davis\’ Feb. 16 game at Franklin will be shown the next day at 7 p.m.
