Jones takes on double team to down Cavs
David Douglas erases a late six-point deficit to pick up a key road win at Clackamas
6A BOYS BASKETBALL
Mount Hood Conference
The David Douglas boys basketball team scored the final 10 points on the night to pull off an 85-81 win at Clackamas on Friday night.
The game was tied 81-81 heading into the final minutes when Scots' guard John Morris poked the ball loose and dived to the floor dribbling from his belly. That gave teammate Hunter Davis time to track down a referee and call timeout before the Cavaliers could close in and tie up the ball.
With the ball in their hands, the Scots zapped almost two minutes off the clock before guard Charlie Jones split a pair of defenders and rolled the winning shot over the rim with 20 seconds left.
Clackamas had a chance to answer when Drew Conaway whipped a pass to Mitchell Fink, who was cutting to the basket from the left side. But the Scots' Lamariea Taylor saw him coming just in time and blocked the shot.
David Douglas (15-2) plays at Barlow (12-5) at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday.
