The Roosevelt boys varsity basketball team won Tuesday’s home conference game against Corona (CA) by a score of 56-46.
Coach Stephen Singleton recapped the first quarter by saying, “The first half belonged to Corona as they took advantage of our mistakes on the offensive and defensive end. We closed the first half on a nice little run that carried over to the second half.”
The second half of the game, “…clearly belonged to us on both ends of the court. It all started on the defense of end with Devon Benefield and Amari Smith locking up their best player. Our offense was led by Godfry Little who hit four shots in a row with three of those being from long range. CJ Bellamy and Brandon Porter also came up big on the offensive and defensive end getting steals and hitting big time shots. It was a team effort in the second half and we held Corona to 11 total points in that second half to secure the victory.”
Good job to our boy’s basketball team! Good luck with the rest of your season and make sure to come out and support Mustangs!
