Trinity hits 100 points in rout

Trinity Classical Academy boys basketball hit the century mark in points for the first time in school history and won by 45 points.

But after the No. 1 seeded Knights’ 100-55 win over Lee Vining High some five-plus hours north in the second round of the CIF-Southern Section Division VI playoffs on Friday, head coach John Brooks had a twinge of annoyance in his voice.

“It’s disappointing,” Brooks said. “As coaches we stress to play fundamental defense, but we tend to want to get the quick steal.

Again, we want to teach disciplined defense. We have three more games (if we make the title game). As we go, things will get tougher. If we create bad habits, they will rear their ugly heads as we go on.”

Trinity jumped on the Tigers 26-8 in the first quarter, but Lee Vining cut the lead to 44-28 before Trinity hit a 3-pointer at the first-half buzzer to extend the advantage to 47-28.

Brooks was annoyed by that, as there was a large talent gap between Trinity and Lee Vining (9-7), and by his second unit not performing up to his standards.

The first unit played about half of the game.

Ian Caddow scored 19 points for the Knights, Spencer Klehn added 17, Josh Mumper scored 15 and Ryan Brooks added 13.

Trinity (15-8) gets the winner of Palm Valley and Baptist Christian.

A Palm Valley of Palm Springs win might mean another long road trip for the quarterfinals on Tuesday.
