David Douglas boys ice Bruins at the stripe
6A BOYS BASKETBALL
Mount Hood Conference
David Douglas shot lights out from the charity stripe on Tuesday to subdue Barlow in a 78-71 boys basketball victory. The Scots returned to .500 in league play, swept the season series with Barlow and boosted their playoff chances with the win.
We have really been making an effort in practice to be better from the free-throw line, David Douglas senior Charles Jones said. We have been shooting 150 free throws each in practice. Probably more. It is definitely paying off for us.
Practice didnt make perfect for the Scots, but it came pretty close. They went 25 for 29 from the line against the Bruins, making 18 of their final 19 attempts.
Jones led the charge from the line, going 10 of 10. He dropped 37 points to lead all scorers.
