These Blue Devils are so good on offense, their score grows even when they’re not on the court.
Well, sort of …
In last Sunday’s Davis Enterprise, fans read all about the Davis High boys basketball team’s record-setting performance over Valley Christian. The reported score was 133-55.
Occasionally, Enterprise staffers call DHS coach Dan Gonzalez for recaps of road games. This Common Good nonleague matchup in Antelope was one of those occasions.
But the reported/published score was wrong.
On Friday, before his team routed Elk Grove, Gonzalez told the paper that “our book had scratchings at the bottom … and the last time I looked at the scoreboard it said 133.”
Now comes word that the actual score was 134-55 — mystically erasing, for the fourth time this season, the program’s all-time, single-game scoring mark.
Peter Fuqua, who frequently runs the board at Davis home games, was philosophical about the Gonzalez/Enterprise faux pas:
“It’s difficult to count that high.”
With Friday’s 96-57 win over the Thundering Herd, the Devils are averaging 89.2 ppg — the most prolific offense in the state.
