David Douglas stays in the basketball hunt
MHC BOYS HOOPS - 3-point barrage gives Scots a lead they never surrender vs. Barlow
David Douglas point guard Kevin Hurley could not hide the smile on his face during crunch time Friday night. He knew the game plan, and he knew he couldn't be stopped.
Leading by eight with about five minutes to play, Scots coach Chad Reeves called timeout. Earlier this week, Douglas saw a 16-point lead shrink to a one-possession gap during a win over Centennial. Reeves wanted to avoid a repeat against perennial power Barlow.
'It was either get to the hoop or get fouled and knock down free throws,' Hurley said.
The 6-foot-1 senior came out of the huddle and attacked the Bruins like a safecracker searching for treasure. He feigned several drives into the middle only to pull up and dribble calmly back near mid-court. Then that smile appeared. He heard the subtle click in the dial - he had found the hole in the defense and swung the door wide open.
