Foothill boys’ basketball had a two-day tournament in Lompoc this past weekend, competing in three games. The team lost the three games with scores of 21-47, 41-49, and 45-74.

In the first game of the tournament on Friday, the Dragons  played against San Luis Obispo High School, losing 21-47. That day the leading scorers were freshman Cameron Strain with seven points and sophomore Christian Perez with five points.

Coach Dean Prophet feels the team needs more work on their defense.

“We still need to work on finishing a defensive possession with a defensive rebound,” said Prophet.

Their second game resulted in another loss against Righetti High School, but with a closer score of 41-49. The top scorers in this game were Strain with 11 points, senior Michael Booth with seven points, and sophomore Tyler Ragan-Sutton with seven points.

Prophet felt the same on the team needing to work on their “defensive possession” and “defensive rebounds.” He also felt that overall this was the team’s greatest game in the tournament.

“We played our best game against a very solid Righetti team,” said Prophet.

On the last day of the tournament, Foothill played Atascadero High School. Atascadero won with a score of 45-74. Junior  Michael Vaughan scored  13 points Booth scored  11 points for the team.

Prophet believes that the important part of this tournament was the game its self.

“Being able to get game time experience for our team was valuable this weekend,” said Prophet.

The Boy’s basketball team has had eight loses and zero wins so far in the season. Their next game is against Hueneme High School on January 5th.
