BBK: Defense sparks Chargers to blow-out victory

Dos Pueblos turned up the defensive intensity and shut down Ventura for a 53-34 Channel League boys basketball victory on Friday night at Sovine Gym..

“We did a good job on the defensive end,” DP coach Joe Zamora said. “We created numerous turnovers which led to some good transition baskets.”

Cruz Mertens paced the Charger offense with 16 points, including four 3-pointers. Zach Shugart added 11 points.

Zamora praised the play of Derek Abbott in the post. Abbott has stepped up for DP after an injury to Jackson Wopat.

The Chargers got good play off the bench from CJ Zajic and Erik Olson, while Gerry Perez and Chris Williams did a nice job directing the attack, said Zamora.

Dos Pueblos jump out to 17-6 lead in the first quarter and never looked back

Dos Pueblos is 3-0 in the Channel League and 10-4 overall.
