BASKETBALL: Varsity boys fall to dominant Woodcreek side





The Woodcreek Timberwolves handed the varsity boys basketball team its fourth loss of the year last night with a score of 81-50. According to junior point guard Jase Giorgi, the Tigers had no answer for the Timberwolves’ 6’11” center, junior Jordan Brown.

“He played really well on both ends of the floor,” Giorgi said. “He controlled the tempo on offense and did a really good job protecting the rim on defense.”

Brown led all scorers with 32 points, but Giorgi feels that Brown’s biggest impact was his ability to grab rebounds due to his height, which nullified Roseville’s chance to have any second chance points.

“It was almost impossible to grab rebounds on offense and defense because of how good he controlled them,” Giori said. “We weren’t able to grab any second chance points so our offensive possessions were pretty short.”

The Timberwolves came out strong and put up nine points before the Tigers could score any. However, the Tigers managed to cut their deficit to five points after senior Jakob Hedger hit a three-point shot to beat the first quarter buzzer and make the score 22-17.

Even so, it was Woodcreek’s game from then on, leading 41-27 at the half and ending the game with 29 more points than the Tigers.

Woodcreek moves to 8-0 with the win while the Tigers move to 4-4. Roseville will try to bounce back this weekend in the Rocklin Holiday Tournament.
