EAST COUNTY PREP BOYS BASKETBALL

By Adam Paul

WEST HILLS 86, SAN YSIDRO 59

So far this season the West Hills Wolf Pack have played one of the tougher schedules and haven’t ducked anyone so far. So far they have played the #2 Vista Panthers, #7 Mater Dei Crusaders and #10 Christian High Patriots.

Despite the losses in all three contests the Wolf Pack had one constant and that was the hot shooting and scoring of Sr. guard Cam Barry who coming into the contest against San Ysidro had scored 100 points for an average of just over 33 points per contest.

The losses to some of the top teams in the county didn’t deter the Wolf Pack as they hosted the Cougars of San Ysidro in the West Hills tournament. West Hills came out on fire and lit things up by scoring 25 points in the first quarter while the Cougars only put up 15 points. Leading the way for the Pack in the first quarter was Barry who scored 15 points including 3 three pointers.

Things got a little interesting in the second quarter as the Cougars tried to mount a comeback as they were able to limit Barry and the Pack in the quarter. However despite only six points by Barry it was Adam Dillion who also chipped in with 6 points to outscore San Ysidro 19-17 and take a 44-32 lead into the break.

West Hills really blew open the game in the second half as they were able to outscore the Cougars 42-27 to take the victory.

It wasn’t just the victory that was achieved but also a record as well. On the night Barry scorched his way to 46 points including 6 treys. The 46 points broke a twenty-one year old record set by Al Enriquez back in 1996 who scored 44 points.

“It feels great to break the record, especially with the win, and that it happened on our home floor so our fans could see it as it was a special moment. I just kept going to the basket. Shots from the three point didn’t go down tonight but I just kept attacking. San Ysidro played a 1-3-1 defense most of the game and then tried to trap but we did a good job of breaking and attacking when we had numbers advantages.” Said Barry about the historic night and about the win.

Barry didn’t just score 46 points but he also grabbed 13 rebounds to garner another double-double on the season. Also scoring for the Pack was Dillon who scored 12 points on the night.
