DJ Strawberry helps Bighorns win in return
RENO – DJ Strawberry marked his return to Reno with 14 points and five boards Friday afternoon, helping lift the Bighorns to a 105-90 victory over the Bakersfield Jam in the Reno Events Center.
Strawberry, who starred for Reno last season, was added to the Bighorns roster on Thursday and registered 22 minutes off the bench in his season debut. The guard out of Maryland was one of seven Bighorns to finish in double-figures in scoring on the day.
The Jam slowed the Bighorns out of the gate, but Reno outscored Bakersfield by 16 points in the second period and never looked back, cruising to their third-straight victory. The Bighorns stay perfect on the season and hold their perch atop the Western Conference standings.
Patrick Ewing, Jr. led the ‘Horns with 20 points and nine rebounds on the day. Aaron Miles recorded 13 assists to complement 13 points, while Mo Charlo finished with 14 points, three steals and three blocked shots. Marcus Landry knocked-down three three-point tries on his way to 16 points.
