Looking to finish the year on a high note, and trailing visiting Grant by one point in Tuesday’s season finale, the Davis High junior varsity boys basketball team put the ball in the trusty hands of leading scorer Kevin Austin.

It was a good plan.

Austin’s bucket with just four seconds left lifted the Blue Devils over the Pacers, 46-45, to give the locals a final record of 14-11 overall, 5-5 in the Delta Valley Conference.

Tommy McTygue sealed the DHS victory by ripping the ball away from a Grant player as time expired.

Austin posted team highs of five assists and 13 points, bringing his season scoring average to 11.8, and added seven rebounds.

But early on it was the Pacers grabbing all the boards and capitalizing on some Devil turnovers to take an 8-point halftime advantage.

Davis turned things around after intermission my hitting the backboards hard as Will Bodendorfer (7 points) ended up with nine rebounds — bringing his season average to a Blue Devil best 5.8 — and Darshan Adams (8 points) grabbed eight boards of his own.

McTygue ended his season at 8.9 points per game and 4.8 rebounds a night, while Jordan Frost and Nate Hassid tied for the DHS lead in 3-point shooting at 30 percent. Scott Dunn, Mitchell Williams and Ben Bergevin also excelled from long range as each made more than 25 percent of their treys.

The Lady Blue Devils traveled to Grant last Tuesday and picked up a 50-32 win to clinch a share of the Delta Valley Conference title.

DHS finished 2013-14 with a 20-5 overall mark and tied Monterey Trail at 9-1 in league play.

In the season finale, freshman Cara Satre led the Devils with 9 points and six rebounds while sophomore Sarah Sherwin added 7 points and three steals.

Both Satre and Sherwin, along with sophomore post Essence Moore, who had 6 points and eight rebounds against the Pacers, have been called up to join the Davis varsity squad for Tuesday night’s playoff outing at Enochs (Modesto) at 7 p.m.

The JV Blue Devils won 12 of their final 13 games to close out the season, and protected their home court all year long, finishing with a 9-0 mark in The Cage.

It was a tremendous year for these girls. according to freshman head coach Brett Andersen, who assisted with the JV team.

“There was remarkable improvement from the first games in the Speck tournament in early December to this final run in league play,” Andersen explained. “(JV head coach) Heather Highshoe and I could not be more pleased with commitment we got from this group, not only in games, but in practice as well.

“Our defense was the backbone of our success this year (holding opponents to under 30 points per game), which in turn fed our offense. I’m looking forward to watching these girls continue on to their varsity years.”
