VACAVILLE — Reana Hardin poured in 16 points in the first quarter and 29 in the first half en route to netting 38 as the Wood High girls basketball team rolled to a 70-47 nonleague win over Center on Tuesday.

“We were playing our regular 3/4-court press,” Wildcats coach Bob Fernandez said. “She got a lot of steals and layups. She also hit four of her five 3s in the first half. They were leaving her open. She put up the ball and it went in.”

But it wasn’t all Hardin as Fernandez praised his entire squad.

“It was just a real good game for us,” the coach said. “Our press was as good as I’ve seen it at Wood.”

Selena Lopez added nine points, while Tichina Crocker and Ashley Steinkellner each had eight.

The Wildcats (3-3) next play Oak Ridge in the Oak Ridge Slam on Thursday at 6:30 p.m.

Wood dropped the JV game 56-26 with Ashanti Randle leading the Wildcats (1-5) with 15 points, while Maria Castro netted four. Wood plays the host team in the Oak Ridge tournament in El Dorado Hills today at 5 p.m.

Wood hammers Vallejo with solid defense

VALLEJO — Aside from a third-quarter hiccup, the Wood High boys basketball team played stellar defense and enjoyed crisp offensive play in rolling to a 64-52 nonleague win over Vallejo on Tuesday.

The Apaches scored 22 points in the third quarter but only 10 each in the other three periods.

“We really moved the ball on offense in the first half,” Wildcats coach Mark Wudell said. “We got a big lead (19-10 after the first quarter, 34-20 at the half) and kind of just tried to play even with them. We really had some good ball movement, we played some good defense. We let the third quarter get a way from us. That was the only one.”

Wood (5-3) got 23 points from Cameron Moore and 12 from Jamal Brown.

The Wildcats next play Center of Antelope in the first round of the Davis Tournament on Thursday.

Pleasant Grove 66, Fairfield 32: At Elk Grove, the Falcons (3-5) came up sevens in each of the first three quarters and hopelessly fell behind 62-21 after three quarters en route to a nonleague loss.

John Jones led Fairfield with nine points off three 3-pointers, while Latrell Pittman scored eight.

Fairfield hits the road to play the Farmers of Hayward on Thursday.
