Your 7-1 Scottsdale Christian Eagles men’s basketball team traveled to Horizon High School Friday afternoon to participate in the annual Horizon Hoop Holiday Invitational tournament to face the Mountain Ridge Mountain Lions.
The Eagles offense struggled again early, getting good shots but were unable to connect. Senior forward Ethan Spry scored 9 in the quarter and the Eagles would enter the second down 10-15.
The second quarter saw the Eagles offense come to life with balanced scoring from Senior point guard Reed Myers with 6 in the quarter and Spry with 5. The Eagles entered halftime up 28-25 lead by Spry who had 14 in the half and Myers with 7.
The third quarter saw a string of bizarre and highly questionable calls that disrupted game play for both teams but particularly hurt SCA and placed several Eagles in foul trouble including Spry. SCA was able to hang onto a 41-34 lead after the quarter but the calls would play a role in the fourth as the Eagles would only score 3 points in the final quarter and lose the game 44-50.
The Eagles were led in scoring by Spry who finished with 16 points and 8 rebounds. Myers added 9 points and 7 assists.
Your Eagles will play in the annual Cactus Jam beginning December 27 at SCA, come support your men’s basketball team!
