FAIRFIELD — The Vanden High boys basketball team managed to hang on down the stretch, topping visiting Vacaville 68-63 Tuesday night at Jim Boyd Gym.

The Vikings’ Brandon Davis went off for 26 points to lead all scorers. Joseph Avent added 13.

Vanden (7-2) led 31-30 at the break, and the Bulldogs kept pushing throughout the game.

Still, the Vikings’ perimeter attack was too much.

“We made 10 3s. That helped us out a lot,” said Vanden coach Micheal Holloway. “We got the ball in transition, we shared the ball. That’s how we got the open 3s.”

Vanden next faces Analy at 4 p.m. Friday at the El Cerrito Showcase.

Wood 98, Davis 88: At Davis, the Wildcats never took their foot off the gas in avenging a Saturday loss to the Blue Devils in the latter’s home tournament.

Lejon Sewell led Wood (7-5) with 21 points, followed by Cameron Moore with 20. Jeremiah Burks scored 17, Davis Wade added 16 and Khalid Harrison had 15.

In Saturday’s game, Davis put up 14 3-pointers.

“We covered them a little bit better from the 3-point area. They scored half as many 3s (as Saturday),” said Wood coach Mark Wudel. “We passed the ball better and got a bunch of layups. That’s why we didn’t have any 3s, we shot nothing but layups.”

Wood next visits Dixon on Thursday.

Buckingham Charter 68, Woodland Christian 65: At Vacaville, the Knights (3-3) led by 14 with 90 seconds left, but the Cardinals sank three straight 3-pointers to close the gap.

Joey Niccum drained a free throw at the end to seal it for Buckingham, the last of his team-high 19 points. He also pulled down seven rebounds.

Austin Kazemba added seven points and eight boards.

Buckingham led 34-33 at the half.

The Knights head to the Golden Sierra tournament on Thursday, where they will face Rio Vista at 6:30 p.m.

Prep girls basketball

Armijo hangs on to get win over Davis

FAIRFIELD — A big night from two key players led to a solid win for the Armijo High girls basketball team when the Indians edged visiting Davis 46-42 at E. Gary Vaughn Gymnasium.

Justice Robinson-Kroon led Armijo (5-4) with 20 points and Melaya Gaines added 16.

Kianna Simms (three points) and Marshanique Hall (seven points) were the only other Indians to find the hoop, but it was enough for Armijo to bounce back from an overtime loss to Vanden at home on Friday.

“We scored well inside at the end of the game. At the end of the game Melaya and Justice were our go-to players,” Armijo coach Christian Stoll said. “We played pretty good defense. We had an early lead and held on as the game went on.”

The Indians hit the road for Benicia today.

Pittsburg, 71, Rodriguez 46: at Pittsburg, it was a rough night for the Mustangs (3-7) who managed just 11 points in the first half and trailed by 23 at the break.

“We got outrebounded tonight,” said Rodriguez coach Lou Collier. “We gave up too many second-chance shots and that really hurt us.”

Things changed in the second half and Pittsburg only outscored Rodriguez by one point over the final 16 minutes (26-25), but it was too late for the Mustangs.

“If we had some consistency in first half we’d probably be in that game,” Collier said. “But you can’t have a poor first half and the turn it on in second half and expect to win.”

Collier hopes his team will bounce back Thursday when it visits Oakland Tech.

In JV action, the Mustangs (11-2) won 39-29 behind 14 points from Mari Bowie. She also had three steals in the game.

Destiny Greenwood added eight points and 14 rebounds to go with eight steals and six blocks.

Ranesha Gilbert scored eight points and had four rebounds.
