Devil boys open tournament with a win

SHINGLE SPRINGS — In the official opener of the Davis High boys basketball season, the Blue Devils fell back on their vaunted pressure defense to sculpture a 49-45 victory over Nevada Union in the first round of the Gold Dust Tournament on Thursday.

\n

Playing at Placer High, Bryce Thompson paced DHS with 12 points, Tim Mohr added 11 and junior

\n

shooting guard Bryan Hensley canned 10. But it was again the DHS defense to the rescue.

\n

While carving out a 20-16 halftime lead, Devil head coach Dan Gonzalez felt Miner guard Colin Lee was heating up. With 10 of his team\’s 16, the 6-foot-4 Lee definitely did need some cooling off.

\n

Enter Tim Mohr …

\n

“Tim did a great job in the second half on Lee … held him to seven points (and we) came back,” Gonzalez said.

\n

At the end of three periods, Nevada Union (0-1) actually led 33-31. But the Davis door closed on the Miners over the final eight minutes.

\n

“It was another good defensive game on our part. We held them to only eight baskets,” Gonzalez explained. “But we probably fouled a little too much.”

\n

Gonzalez said Hensley\’s energy was a welcome addition, not to mention his two, key 3-pointers.

\n

Sophomore forward Kevin Sorensen also drew the 11th-year coach\’s praise:

\n

“He had good composure. For a sophomore, sometimes you just don\’t know yet what you have. Kevin was solid.”

\n

Sorensen tallied five points and grabbed a handful of important rebounds.

\n

Rounding out the locals\’ scoring were senior guard Graham McDaniel with six, Elvis Bikoba with three and Tyler Sousa with two.

\n

DHS next plays today at 8:30 p.m. versus Colfax, a 50-39 winner over Ponderosa on Thursday. The Blue Devils also change venues with tonight\’s game at El Dorado High in Placerville.
