On January, 12th Saints squared off with Lewis on the hardwood, for the last time in regular season play, and outscored them by twenty-two points. Some will say Saint’s had the home court advantage, however Saints beat Lewis in their own backyard making this two wins in a row against rival Paso Robles. The long and short of it was that Lewis struggled early, falling behind in the first half, and never able to keep up with the well executed offensive screens by the Saint’s allowing for a pass, a drive, and a score. Saints improve their record to 8-1.
Saint’s dominated the Leopards offensively from outside. Lewis found a three-point shot late in the 3rd quarter, but Logan Reyes shot from downtown all game long! Reyes racked up an impressive twelve points in three-point shots. Reyes, also contributed offensively with one basket and 2 successful free-throw shots, bringing his total points on the board to sixteen-making nearly half the points left on the board at the final buzzer.
Lewis’ starting defense might not have gotten on the bus. Lewis struggled defensively against the Saint’s biggest defensive players, Evans and Moscardi the entire four quarters. Evans was the reigning defensive player for the Saints Thursday night. Evans racked up four steals and four defensive rebounds. Evans was the money player for the Saint’s defense.
From courtside seat he got game: Besides, Reyes offensively and Evans defensively, Michael Porter was a player to watch during Thursday’s game. Porter had 3 steals, 2 defensive rebounds, and sparked the scoreboard with 4 points.
Until it’s tipped off again on January, 18th that’s Hootie’s scoop on the hoop.
