The Davis Hot Shots eighth-grade boys AAU basketball team played its first tournament last weekend at Hardwood Palace and brought home a championship.

Stopping the Folsom Force, 44-30, for the title, the Hot Shots defeated YBA Dawgs, 56-51, in the first game and took the second game when defeated E-Time Hoops Sohndi, 57-52.

In the first two games, the Davis Hot Shots’ press was the key factor to the wins, leading to more than 20 steals. “The championship game was a slow start but a great finish,” coach Dino Clark said, adding “(I) was pleased with the great start to the season and a great team effort.”

Players who made strong contributions for the Hot Shots were Daniel Gaytan-Jenkins, Liam Neville, Jackson Kavrell, Deven Sanchez, Vaughn Davis, Suhndeep Chera, Johnny Voss, Drew Gnos, Gianni Babich, Jerid Roberson, Bailey Yarrow, Nathan Curtis, Arvin Domier, Cain Heath, Dylan Klein, Marquis Turner and Quentin McCray.

Hoops Wildcats 11U

The Davis Hoops Wildcats 11U team captured first place at the First Annual Solano Showdown tournament in Dixon last weekend.

In its first game, Davis beat the Ram Town Reign, 57-32. Yiorgos Calloway led the way with 22 points, including four 3-pointers. Also in the scoring column were Joe Morrison, with 10 points, and guard Kai Taylor, with seven. Wildcats forward Spencer Webb garnered a team-high seven rebounds, guard Tommy Aquino dished out eight assists and Scott Soderquist provided defensive presence inside the paint.

Next, against Dixon, Morrison scored the game-winner with two seconds left to give Davis a 33-32 victory. Morrison had six points and eight rebounds to help, Wildcats leading scorer Quinn Vaewsorn, who sank eight points. Webb added seven points for Davis, while guard play by Garrett Thomson and Chase Furman helped keep the Wildcats in the game.

In the championship game, Davis defeated the Modesto Raiders, 36-24, to secure the title. The tone of the game was set early as the Wildcats put on a full-court press that forced numerous Modesto turnovers. Calloway had 10 points to lead the locals, Vaewsorn and Webb put in eight each and Jamie Moddelmog added six points and three rebounds.

Wildcats 12U

Davis Wildcats 12U Black finished second at the Solano Showdown last weekend, nearly pulling off a dramatic comeback before falling short in Sunday’s championship game to the Modesto Raiders, 35-30.

On Saturday, the Wildcats opened the tournament with a 41-29 victory over the Ram Town Reign B. Ben Bergevin (16 points), Kyle Cuvelier (eight points, three assists) and Greg Silver (eight points, five rebounds) led the charge, while Cristian Bermudez (eight rebounds) and Jeffrey Yin (four rebounds) provided inside muscle for the locals.

Later Saturday, Davis rolled to a 49-31 triumph over the Ram Town Reign A team, with Kyle Katzenmeyer (12 points, six rebounds) and Bergevin (11 points, five rebounds) pacing a balanced offensive attack and Cuvelier and Tyler Mundy controlling the tempo on both ends of the floor.

Starting slowly against Modesto, the Wildcats fell behind 23-10 at halftime. Davis cranked up the defense in the third quarter and mounted a charge that resulted in a brief 28-27 advantage midway through the final period. Unfortunately, despite strong play from Bergevin, Katzenmeyer, Silver, Mundy, Bermudez and Yin, the Wildcats could not come away with the victory.

Wildcats 13U

The Davis Wildcats 13U Black team took second place in the Madness at the Palace tournament in Rocklin last weekend.

Davis defeated the Carmichael Red Raiders, 64-46, in its first game, with Gavin Cosgrave’s 14 points and 15 rebounds leading the way. Kevin Austin drained 13 points and dished five assists in the victory, while Matt Cheung (nine points), Tommy McTygue (six) and Mitch Williams (four ) all contributed for the Wildcats.

Behind Glen Welch’s 13 points and Cheung’s nine, Davis was able to beat the Del Oro Junior Eagles, 47-45, in its second game. Diego Reyes paced the Wildcats’ defense with five steals.

Davis came up short, 49-47, in a double-overtime championship thriller with E-Time Hoops of Antelope. Jeff Satterburg exploded for the Wildcats, pouring in 17 points and grabbing nine rebounds, while Austin contributed nine points and four assists. Reyes added six points and five steals and Cosgrave dropped in five points for the locals.
