EL CENTRO â€”Â Southwest High School Eagles boys’ basketball team soared over the Imperial High Tigers, 70-49, at Southwest High hereÂ Tuesday night.
“I am very proud of the defense and communication. We stress playing defense and we did it todayÂ … we played a complete game today,” explained Sergio Rubio, Southwest Assistant Coach, after the win.
It was an even battle throughout the first half, but the Eagles’ fast-paced offense stoleÂ the momentum at the start of the second half.
Multiple three pointers and quick passes by the Eagles caused the Tigers to commit several offensive fouls.
This led to free throws for the Eagles allowing them to controlÂ the momentum and tempo of the game.
“We all brought intensity and never gave up,” said Southwest’s Martin Mendez. “We fought to the end.”[envira-gallery id=”70661″]
