DHS boys settle for second place

PLACERVILLE — It was a fourth quarter Davis High\’s boys basketball team could have lived without.

\n

Trailing by only two heading into the final eight minutes of the Gold Dust Tournament on Saturday night, the Blue Devils\’ trademark defense fell apart in a 62-46 title-game loss to Amador Valley.

\n

“It\’s good to put ourselves in a position to be in championship games, but we\’re still having trouble scoring,” DHS head coach Dan Gonzalez said, not overly concerned about the 62 points allowed. “We\’ll address (the offense) in practice, but we certainly don\’t want to (make

\n

adjustments) that impact the defense.”

\n

The Devils (2-1) opened with their usual ball-handler-dogging style, leading 6-3 after one period.

\n

But suddenly, poor shooting and key turnovers by DHS put the Dons (3-0) in gear …

\n

Halftime saw things tied at 22, then the Pleasanton-area school outscored Davis, 18-16, in the third quarter. When it got to Crunch Time, on this night the Blue Devils were on the short end, waxed in the final period, 22-8.

\n

Senior forward Tim Mohr — who led a fourth-quarter comeback against Colfax on Friday — was again DHS\’ top scorer with 22 points. Bryce Thompson added 12 as Graham McDaniel (four) and Elvis Bikoba, Zach Powers, Kevin Sorensen and Tyler Delaughder each tallied two points.

\n

In getting to the title game, the Blue Devils clipped Nevada Union in the opener, then came from nine points down in the fourth quarter to nip Colfax, 55-53, on Friday.

\n

In the Friday victory, it was all Mohr — all the time — in a furious final-period rally.

\n

“Tim just decided to take over,” Gonzalez said.

\n

Scoring 16 of his game-high 19 points in the last eight minutes, Mohr helped Davis outgun the Falcons, 22-11, down the stretch.

\n

“We had trouble stopping them from executing their stuff,” Gonzalez said, remembering the first part of the Colfax game. “They had a good inside-out game.”

\n

But then the Devils started mixing their defenses, throwing a little zone in with a lot of man-to-man. Gonzalez felt changing things up “confused them enough … we got back in the game.”

\n

McDaniel added 13 points and held sway when Colfax tried to press the point guard. Center Delaughder had eight points, Ilanko Nataraajan contributed six, Tyler Sousa four, Jack Yoder and Thompson had two each while Sorensen added a point.

\n

The Blue Devils next travel to Woodland for a 7 p.m. Tuesday contest against the Wolves. It marks the first time since Dec. 4, 2007, that the cross-county rivals have met in basketball. On that day, the Wolves won, 56-39, in Woodland.
