Ice-cold shooting crushes DHS boys at Franklin

ELK GROVE — When a basketball team like the Davis High boys squad takes about 50 3-point shots every game, winning and losing becomes a pretty simple proposition: make 15 or more and your chances are good.

In Wednesday’s Delta Valley Conference road outing at Franklin, the Blue Devils didn’t do that — making just 9-of-54 from long distance — and the Wildcats cruised to a 76-56 victory.

“We had a lot of good looks, wide-open looks, but we just couldn’t hit,” DHS coach Dan Gonzalez said after his team fell to 12-6 and 1-1 in league play.

“I thought we played pretty well other than that. We only had four turnovers and we had 16 offensive rebounds.”

Against an opponent like Franklin (12-7, 1-1), the Devils needed those 3-point shots to fall because the Wildcats’ length inside made it tough to get anything going to the basket. Brandon Strong led the locals with 17 points, Matt Michael added 14 on four treys, but only two other Davis players had more than two points.

“They have several big guys and they do a good job of rotating them,” Gonzalez said. “They blocked a lot of our shots.

“One thing that has happened this year is teams with length have given us trouble. We’ll have to make some adjustments, but at the same time it was nice to see us get good looks even against such a long team.”

One of the Blue Devil bright spots was the play of sophomore Ryan Kreidler, who scored nine points and added a team-high six boards. His classmate Ben Prussel also played well, nailing a pair of 3-pointers on his way to an eight-point night.

“I thought Ryan Kreidler had a really big game,” Gonzalez said. “We was really everywhere and causing a lot of trouble (for Franklin).”

The Wildcats, meanwhile, had four players in double figures, led by Phillip Fayne’s 17 points. Marvin Timothy added 15 for FHS, Christian Allen canned 14 and Austin Payne contributed 13.

DHS will host Laguna Creek on Friday (7 p.m.) in its first home game since the Les Curry Invitational just before Christmas.

“It’s huge for us to be able to play in front of our fans,” Gonzalez said. “We don’t get a lot of home games each season so we have to do something with them.”
