Four Grizzlies scored in double figures as Golden Valley defeated Hart 79-48 at Hart High on Tuesday night,

Golden Valley was without starting senior guard Khatari Price for the third straight game, as he nursed a foot injury.

Grizzlies point guard Trevor Wiseman, who shot 10-for-12 from the free throw line, finished the night with 20 points.

Center Robert Looper scored 11 points, Josh Serrano and Taylor Statham each added 10 points.

“It feels good to come out and get that big of a win,” Wiseman said. “We came out and played focused.”

Hart (5-17, 0-5) has now lost seven straight games.

“We got to play as perfect as possible and control the things we can control,” said Hart head coach Tom Kelly. “That means making the catch, being perfect inside and making our free throws.”

Making free throws wasn’t as big of a problem as sending the Grizzlies to the free throw line. The Indians made 10-of-12 free throw shots, but sent the Grizzlies to the line 28 times, where they scored 22 points.

Golden Valley head coach Chris Printz said there is still room for improvement.

“I thought we turned the ball over too much at first and let them get too many layups,” Printz said.

In the first quarter, Serrano hit two big threes for Golden Valley, giving it a 15-13 lead. A steal and a layup by Wiseman closed out the quarter with the Grizzlies leading 27-17.

Looper found himself alone under the basket for a couple of easy layups in the second quarter, including one at the buzzer to go into the half with a 41-28 lead.

Looper blocked a shot by Delgado in the third and Wiseman scored seven points to extend the Grizzlies’ lead to 60-40.

In the fourth quarter senior forward Mark Bryce made the most of his playing time by making all four of his free throws.
Wiseman continued to get inside and get to the free throw line.

“Wiseman doesn’t just score — he does everything,” Kelly said. “He’s a solid player.”

For Hart, junior guard Roman Delgado scored 16 points and junior Preston Cole had 12.

Next up for Golden Valley (18-4, 4-1) is Canyon, the team that gave the Grizzlies their only league loss this season.
