EL DORADO HILLS — Following a tough loss the night before to Folsom, the Davis High boys got back to doing what they do best — raining 3-pointers — in Saturday’s third-place game of the Trojan Toss Up tournament at Oak Ridge High.

When the final horn sounded, the Blue Devils had their highest scoring output of the season, topping Pleasant Valley, 101-84.

DHS (10-4) nailed an unreal 23 shots from beyond the arc and did it at an impressive 46 percent clip. Seventeen of the treys came in the first half as the Devils opened up a 67-46 lead on the Vikings (7-7).

“We really put together two solid quarters,” said Davis coach Dan Gonzalez, whose team fell to Folsom, 95-65, on Friday. “We got hot and Brett (Bloomfield) and Drew Gnos were doing a great job finding guys.

“We talked about that after Friday’s game, we wanted to do a better job of setting screens and finding the open guys earlier in our offense.”

Bloomfield really got into the sharing mood as the senior guard had eight of his 10 assists in the opening half. Many of those passes went to Matt Michael, who led the Blue Devils with a 24-point outburst that included six 3-pointers.

Brandon Strong, who finished with 12 points and five rebounds to join Bloomfield (eight points, four boards) on the all-tournament team, was one of five DHS players to make three shots from long distance. The others were Gnos, who added four steals, Glen Welch, Austin Lampley and Ben Prussel, who finished with 11 points.

The Devils have now finished in third place or better in three tournaments this season. Folsom, a powerful team that entered Friday’s contest with a 12-2 record, kept the locals out of their third tourney title game.

“Getting two (wins) in every tournament is always the goal,” Gonzalez said. “And to see us bounce back after a tough loss was really nice.

“We had our hands full with Folsom, it seemed like they had size and skill at every position.”

A day after taking a 29-9 first-period advantage in its tournament opener, Davis fell behind the Bulldogs 24-9 in Friday’s first quarter.

Strong scored 15 points to led the Blue Devils in that matchup, while Michael added 11 and Welch had nine.

Next up for DHS is a Tuesday nonleague outing at Cordova. Tip-off is at 7 p.m.
