Sophomore North Hills, CA native James “Deuce” Johnson had 10 points and lead the Rustlers with 8 rebounds tonight, all in the first half. Freshman point guard and Las Vegas, NV native Davion Pearson had eight assists and only one turnover on the night.
“I thought our effort tonight was very good. We did a good job defensively taking away what they wanted to do offensively. We held them to 29% shooting on the night. Offensively I thought we did a good job of sharing the ball. Davion did a very good job facilitating the offensive for us. We moved the ball and got in a rhythm. Plus it didn’t hurt to shoot 60% from the three tonight either” Coach Curtis Condie commented.
