PREP ROUNDUP: Phoenix boys push past Douglas

WINSTON — Miguel Valadez poured in a game-high 19 points and sank key free throws down the stretch to help the Phoenix boys basketball team ward off host Douglas for a 57-51 victory on Monday.

“Miguel showed a lot of heart down the stretch,” said Pirates coach Troy McNichols. “We had a big lead but when the going got tough, he displayed the leadership we needed and put us on his back. He was the difference-maker in the game.”

The Pirates (5-8) imposed their will in the first half, during which they established a 38-27 lead. But Douglas became a threat in the fourth quarter with a late-game surge.

Valadez provided the key free throws and was the stabilizing force that helped the Pirates get payback against the Trojans (5-3). who beat Phoenix in the season opener.

Defensively, the Pirates forced 25-plus turnovers with much of the backcourt havoc coming from the Selden brothers, Jenner and Jackson.

“They were all over the place tonight,” said McNichols of the brothers. “We played outstanding defense tonight. Lots of energy. It was really fun to watch.”

Dylan Harper dropped in 13 points for the Pirates while Jackson Selden and Robin Trenbeath chipped in six points apiece.

The Trojans were led by Jace Page’s 17 points and Kahiki Nielsen’s 15.
