Armijo, Vanden fall in first-round boys playoff action

ELK GROVE — The Armijo High boys basketball team put up quite a fight against second-seeded Pleasant Grove, but the Indians eventually fell 75-62 in the first round of the Sac-Joaquin Section Division I playoffs Wednesday night.

Armijo (15-8) was the No. 15 seed.

“We hung in there the whole night,” Indians coach Carly Perales said. “Every time they extended the lead to 14 or 15, we would push back. . . . until late in the fourth quarter. The thing that hurt us was on the boards. They got a lot of putbacks.

“I’m really proud of this team. We set goals of winning the league and making the playoffs. We achieved both of them.”

Troy Anderson led Armijo with 20 points, while Hosea Barfield scored 11. Terris Brooks and Jacob Chauvin each chipped in 10 points.

Patterson 69, Vanden 61: At Patterson in Division III, the 11th-seeded Vikings (17-11) led 28-21 at the break, but were outscored 48-33 in the second half.

“They got a lot of offensive rebounds and second-chance points, that really hurt us,” Vanden coach Micheal Holloway said. “We couldn’t recover, especially in the third quarter where they outscored us 21-11.”

Demarree Walker led the Vikings with 19 points, followed by Brandon Davis with 15 and  Thomas Avent with 10.

“We had a lot of ups and downs, a lot of adversity, more than we’re used to,” Holloway said of Vanden’s 2012-13 season. “We had a lot of distractions to overcome. That and to come out with a winning record . . . . I’m very proud of that.”

Sacramento 79, Wood 46: At Sacramento in Division II, the No. 16 Wildcats (19-11) were within eight points in the second quarter before the top-seeded Dragons ran away with it.

“We just couldn’t get started,” Wood coach Mark Wudel said. “We didn’t make a 3 tonight. We had nine shots at 3-pointers, all open, too. It’s not like we had to throw up something. Just nothing would fall tonight.”

Cameron Moore was the lone Wildcat in double figures with 10, while Davis Wade and Khalid Harrison each had eight.

“When we did the things we were supposed to do, stuff like that, we did real well,” Wudell said of the season. “We always had some points in the game where we’d forget what to do. We weren’t disciplined enough at times. But, you know, 19-11 is a pretty good year.”

A year that included part of a four-way tie for the Monticello Empire League title.
