Record, Reporter Wednesday, Dec, 5, 2001 IC I II I I I I /"1 By mmmn Mon w Sports The Quincy Tip-off Classic basketball tournament was held Nov. 29 through Dec. 1 at Quincy High School and fea- tured 15 boys basketball teams, both varsity and ju- nior varsity. Orland won the varsity bracket by beating West Val- ley in the championship game, 72-54. Quincy's varsity team went 1-2 and Portola's varsity team went 0-2. In the JV bracket, Quincy went 3-0 and took first place. After defeating Portola, the Division V Trojans knocked off West Valley and Orland, each Division III schools. Portola's JV finished 1-2, with a 78-40 victory over Quincy's JV B-team, which was t'filing in for the Mazama JV team that didn't show up for the tournament. When the Quincy and Por- tola varsity teams met on Thursday night, both teams demonstrated excellent sportsmanship. Portola was behind 57-52 with 6:30 left in the game, but Quincy blew it open in the last few minutes and the final score was 75-57. Numerous penalties were called throughout the game. Quincy shot 16-38 from the free-throw line, and Portola went 17-33. "Everybody got in foul trouble," said Quincy coach Chad Hyink. "There were a bunch of kids with four." Por- tola's Ryan Godman and Aaron Finco fouled out of the game. There was also an abun- dance of turnovers in the match, several of which Por- tola caused with its full-court press. "Portola really attacked the ball," said Hyink. "They have fast, pesky kids who were ac- tive on defense. It pressured us into turnovers. We have to take care of the ball better." Four Quincy players scored in double digits. Chris Driscoll led with 15 points, followed by Brian Blust with 14 points, Jake Newman with 13 points and Jason Kur- pjuweit with 10 points. For Portola, Brett Pearson poured in 20 points and Scott Caskie claimed 14 points. With the win, the Trojans advanced to play West Valley Friday night and lost, 55-31. "We choked in that one," said Hyink. "Offensively, we didn't have it. We were miss- ing lay-ups and easy jumpers. Thirty-one points is not ac- ceptable. There were a lot of missed opportunities." Quincy was then defeated by Durham on Saturday, 48- 37. "Right now we're a very mediocre team with potential to be good," said Hyink. "We have lots of talent but we aren't playing up to our po- tential. We all have to pick it up a notch. We need more of- fensive output from a lot of these kids." Portola lost Friday to Lassen, 78-45. Pearson led the Tigers with 1,2 points, fol- lowed by Godman with 8 points. "We're incredibly quick," said Portola coach Brad Miller. "We have a lot of po- tential--we just have to put it together." In JV action, Quincy won its first game against Portola, 78-49. Evan Reed led the scor- ing for the Trojans with 17 points, Jake Vickery and Matt Brady each drained 14 points, and Eric West and Richard Williams netted 11 points each. "I was pretty happy with our play," said Quincy JV coach Steve Cokor. "We had good penetration." Quincy then beat West Val- ley, 49-46, with Reed posting 14 points and Jason Barreno sinking 13 points. In the championship match, Quincy defeated Or- land, 60-48. Steve Dolloff buried 16 points in the con- test, followed by Reed with 14 points, Vickery with 12 points and Barreno with 10 points. "The (Quincy) JV looked very good," said Hyink. "They're a very quick team. They have a lot of kids that can run the court. They work really well together, and they like playing the game." Local players that earned All-Tourney selections were Driscoll (Quincy varsity); Pearson (Portola varsity); Reed (Quincy JV); Vickery (Quincy JV); Nolan Stover (Portola JV); and Charlie Sat- terfield (Quincy JV B-team). Prior to the tournament, Portola's varsity beat Incline 54-50; Quincy's varsity beat Los Molinos 57-35; Portola's JV beat Incline 69-43; and Quincy's JV beat Los Moli- nos 44-29. b Jaike Newman goes for a layup on fast break, as Brett break up the play.
