Lane 52 Payton 21
We knew what to expect out of Payton today and although we got off to a slow start, we did what we needed to do. We took advantage of Payton's sloppy ball handling as guards John Cook and Dillan Torres each had two or more steals in the first half. Our defense in the first half was superb as we held Payton to 12 points (2 in the second quarter). We've been priding ourself on our defense this season and us as a team feel we can beat any team with our stifling defense leading to smart offense. Payton was led by Christopher Flores with 6 points. We were led by John Cook with 13 points and Dillan Torres with 9. Our enegetic bench led by Junior Guard Zach Calamus (3 steals) came in and closed the door shut on our 31 point win. Big game Friday against conference opponent, Senn.
