DHS boys blow out Broncos

FAIR OAKS — “It was a typical System game,” Davis High boys basketball coach Dan Gonzalez said after his team got its first official win of the season Thursday.

If a 90-52 victory over a tournament host (in this case Bella Vista at the Bronco tourney) is typical, it is going to be a strong year for the Blue Devils.

Running The System — its signature breakneck-speed style — DHS won the first quarter, 11-8, then turned on the afterburners. The Broncos couldn’t keep up as the visiting Devils won the final three periods, 28-14, 27-13 and 24-17.

“We really got on a roll in that second quarter; we hit six threes,” Gonzalez said. “Since we are playing all 16 guys and shifting in and out, the other team really starts to get tired.”

This year, Gonzalez’s third running The System, the locals are subbing five new players in every 50 seconds to a minute — even shorter than the shifts have been past two years.

“The faster the better,” Gonzalez said of his shifts. “It just feels like it’s a more balanced team this year. We have two players at every position and sometimes three.”

And most of them can shoot.

Davis made 18 3-pointers in the victory, including four each by senior Brandon Strong and sophomore Ben Prussell. Strong led the Blue Devils with 21 points, Prussell added his 12 and Brett Bloomfield contributed 11 to go with seven assists.

Ben Crook made it four DHS players in double digits as he had 10 points, while Austin Lampley nailed three treys for nine points.

In addition, Glen Welch had five steals to go along with his six points and Matt Michael led the Devils with seven rebounds and scored eight points of his own.

“Matt does everything out there for us,” Gonzalez said. “He is really valuable.”

With the win, Davis advanced to the semifinals of the tournament, and will face Oakmont Friday at 8:30 p.m. for a spot in the championship contest.
