The Eagles Boys Basketball team went 2-2 in this past weekend’s tournament action.
In the opening games Friday THS defeated Hanford 44-32, then lost a one point decision in overtime to Shafter, 59-58. On Saturday the Eagles lost to Arroyo Grande 60-41 and then defeated Paso Robles 56-49 in the final game of the tournament.
As always it takes a team effort to be successful but several players stood out this weekend. Here are a look at our 4 game stat leaders for the Atascadero Tournament:
Leading Scorer – Evan Asplund – 50
Leading Rebounder – Xander Shaw – 32
Leading Assists – Xander Shaw – 11
Leading Steals – Evan Asplund – 6
Leading Blocks – Seth Cherry -6
Evan Asplund was named to the “All Tournament Team” and coach Cherry said, “Evan Asplund played great all weekend long. Didn’t come out once against Paso and he was key to our success there.”
Coach Cherry added, “Kids played well this weekend. We went 2-2, losing to Shafter by 1 in overtime and losing to AG by 19. We were right there with Shafter until the end, and AG is just an incredible team. May sounds silly, but I am ok with the AG score. They are a big school and a great team.”
Our Eagles are next in action when they travel to the Rancho Mirage Tournament at Rancho Mirage High on Friday, January 3rd.
