FAIRFIELD — Hosea Barfield scored 14 points, Terris Brooks 13 and Troy Anderson 11 to lead a balanced attack for the unbeaten Armijo High boys basketball team in a 71-55 nonleague win over Vallejo at E. Gary Vaughn Gymnasium on Tuesday night.

“It was a solid, all-around team effort on the defensive side of the ball,” Indians coach Carly Perales said. “On the offensive side, everyone contributed.”

In a scheduling quirk, Armijo (4-0) plays the Apaches again on Thursday in the first round of the Vacaville tournament at 5 p.m.

Vanden 53, Dixon 49: At Fairfield, the Vikings (2-1) got a game-high 16 points from Leon Williams and hit 13 of 16 free throws to outlast the Rams.

“Without those (free throws), they probably would’ve got us,”  Vanden coach Micheal Holloway said. “We let them get open looks in the second half and that kept them hanging around.”

The Vikings also got nine points from Brandon Davis and play Davis in the Vacaville tournament on Thursday at 8 p.m.

Wood 54, Whitney 41: At Vacaville, in a battle of Wildcats, Wood sank 15 of 19 free throws in cruising to a nonleague win.

“We made free throws, we played defense and ran offense better,” Wood coach Mark Wudel said. “We missed easy shots but you’ve got to run offense first. We’re playing better.”

Wood was led by Davis Wade’s 19 points and opens the Nevada Union tournament in Grass Valley against McQueen of Reno on Thursday at 5 p.m.

Vanden JV 71, Dixon 64: At Fairfield, D’Marre Walker scored 21 points, Rashad Fisher 14, Javin White 12 and Tony Terry 10 with 12 rebounds to lead the Vikings.

Vanden plays in the Wood tournament on Thursday at 3:30 p.m.

WOODLAND — The Wood High girls basketball team gave up the first bucket and never trailed again in rolling to a 63-21 nonleague victory over Pioneer of Woodland on Tuesday.

“We need to improve our free throw shooting and still need to get better playing defense,” Wildcats coach Bob Fernandez said.

Reana Hardin poured in 27 points to pace the Wildcats (1-1), while Ashley Steinkellner added 10 and Tichina Crocker had 15 rebounds and five steals.

Wood plays host Antelope in the Claude Brock tournament on Thursday.

Monte Vista 58, Rodriguez 42: At Fairfield, Lala Lockett scored 14 and Jophiea Irvin nine as the Mustangs (1-4) fell at home.

“I think that we’re playing better basketball,” Rodriguez coach Lou Collier said. “Our record doesn’t reflect the way we’re playing. We’re just playing some tough teams.”

The Mustangs play Marin Catholic in the Paris Twins Classic in Piedmont on Thursday at 6:30 p.m.

Pioneer JV 49, Wood 28: At Vacaville, Ashanti Randle scored 10 and Aira Shankles five in a losing cause for the Wildcats (1-4).
