SAN DIEGO — Carson High’s boys basketball team ran into another top-notch team, and the Senators dropped a 76-56 decision to Canyon Crest at the Torrey Pines Holiday Classic.
Canyon Crest dropped in 12 3-pointers, as Carson’s defense was helpless to stop dribble penetration.
“They were a hard team to defend,” Carson coach Carlos Mendeguia said. “All five guys could penetrate and then dish to the open guy outside. They were very difficult to guard. We would help on the penetration and give up the wide-open three.
“Our transition game was better today. Our half-court defense was better today than yesterday. We made some changes. We moved Tez (Allen) to point.”
Allen finished with 21 points, Jayden DeJoseph added 17 and Trent Robison scored seven.
Carson returns to action today at 12:40.
Carson edges Ripon
TRACY – Lauren Lemburg scored 20 points to lead the Senators past Ripon, 55-49, at the Tracy Lions Tournament on Wednesday afternoon.
It was a nice comeback for the Senators, who lost their tournament opener by a whopping 55 points. Carson returns to action today at 1 against McNair.
“Lauren only had one three, but she did a good job of getting to the basket,” CHS coach Melissa Larsen said. “Haley (Garver) went to the basket better, and everyone else added in.
“We play McNair (today), and I feel we can play with them. The team we played the first day was the fourth or fifth best team in Stockton.”
Garver scored 13 points for the Senators.
