RANCHO CORDOVA — Often, it’s the Davis High boys basketball team that uses its extremely up-tempo style — known as The System — to jump on its opponents early.

On Tuesday at Cordova, the Blue Devils weren’t the only team running The System as the Lancers used a similar breakneck pace to build an early cushion and earn an 87-78 win.

“They were pressing the exact same way we were, though they didn’t rely as much on the 3-point shot,” DHS coach Dan Gonzalez explained after his team fell to 10-5. “It was really up-tempo both ways.”

In the opening half, Cordova’s press was very effective and the Lancers (9-4) used it to take a 14-point advantage (49-35) at intermission. Davis was able to cut into the lead in the second half, and ended up making 17 treys (in 47 attempts) to just nine by the hosts, but it wasn’t enough.

“We lost the game in the first half,” Gonzalez said. “They had a lot of length and forced a lot of turnovers (25) in their press, while we only forced nine. At halftime we made some good adjustments and did a better job.”

Despite the loss, Blue Devil sophomore Glen Welch had the best game of his young career, splashing in 6-of-9 from beyond the arc to finish with 20 points. Another sophomore, Ben Prussel, made a pair of treys for his eight points but added an impressive five offensive rebounds.

“That was nice to see out of Glen,” Gonzalez said. “I know what’s in him, he is one of my sophomores, along with Prussel who can shoot the three. (They) play the same position so we got 28 points out of that spot.”

DHS also got strong play from its seniors, as Brandon Strong had 15 points, including four 3-pointers, Matt Michael added 11 points (three treys) and six rebounds, Brett Bloomfield tallied 11 while Logan Davis (seven) and Ben Crook (four) contributed points. Sophomore Nate Curtis’ bucket rounded out the local scoring.

Jordan Roberson led Cordova with 19 points.

The Devils now have 10 days off before opening Delta Valley Conference play on Friday, Jan. 17, at Elk Grove (7 p.m.)

“We have a long time to get ready for league and I think it is good,” Gonzalez said. “We have time to get back into the weight room and work on our conditioning and get ready to make a really good run in league.”
