PETALUMA — The Fairfield High boys basketball team opened the Brett Callan Memorial Tournament at Casa Grande High with a 64-46 win over Albany on Thursday.

The Falcons (5-5) started quick, opening a 34-16 halftime advantage and never looked back.

“We had much better defensive intensity, especially (at the start),” Fairfield coach Tony Bryant said.

Javon Adams led the Falcons with 15 points, DeMoriaye Hart-Spikes added 12 and Anthony Bryant Jr. scored 10.

Fairfield plays in the semifinals today against Windsor at 6:30 p.m.

Wood 70, Dixon 46: At Dixon, the Wildcats (8-5) had four players score in double figures in a win over the Rams.

Davis Wade led Wood with 19 points, while Lejon Sewell added 11 and Jamal Brown and Cameron Moore each scored 10.

The Wildcats are back in action Thursday when they face Christian Brothers at 4 p.m. in the opening round of the Cordova tournament.

 Buckingham Charter 71, Rio Vista 35: At Garden Valley, the Knights (4-3) started strong and got stronger, doubling up the Rams in the first round of the Golden Sierra Tournament.

Joey Niccum led Buckingham with 17 points to go with seven rebounds and six assists.

Point guard Devin Riley added 10 points along with three assists and three steals.

“We had a real good game defensively, we caused 15 turnovers in the first half,” said Knights coach Dan Curry.

Buckingham returns to action today to face Foresthill at 6 p.m. in the tournament semifinals.

Improved Rodriguez nipped by Oakland Tech

OAKLAND — A marked improvement for the Rodriguez High girls basketball team still wasn’t enough for the Mustangs to get by Oakland Tech Thursday as the Mustangs fell 51-50.

Still, it’s a far cry from the 56-39 defeat Rodriguez (3-8) suffered at the hands of the Bulldogs on Dec. 8.

“The girls came out and really played a tough game,” said Mustangs coach Lou Collier. “The first time we played Oakland Tech, they really handed it to us. Tonight we just played a good game.”

Briana Hayles led Rodriguez with 18 points. Jenessa Boling added 10 points, as did Jophiea Irvin.

Rodriguez led 42-37 heading into the fourth quarter, but some missed chances at the end cost the Mustangs the win.

“We turned the ball over a couple times at the end,” Collier said. “We made a bucket then they made a really tough shot. With nine seconds left we had a really good look at the basket and shot one up and it rolled off the rim. There was 1 second left when the rebound came down.”

The Mustangs return to action after Christmas, facing off with Carson City, Nev., at the West Coast Jamboree on Dec. 27.

Rodriguez JV 53, Oakland Tech 28: At Oakland, the Mustangs (12-2) picked up a road win behind 12 points, seven rebounds, two steals and three blocks from Destiny Greenwood.

Sierra Shackelford added 11 points, eight rebounds and two steals for Rodriguez, while Renesha Gilber had 10 points and eight rebounds.
