VACAVILLE — DeAndre Scott’s jumper with 1 second left lifted the Rodriguez High boys basketball team to 51-49 Monticello Empire League win over Vacaville, Tuesday.

It was the 16th straight victory for Mustangs (18-1, 4-0 MEL), one shy of the school record set in 2008-09.

“Vacaville’s a very solid team, a very balanced team and well coached,” Rodriguez coach Nate Rankin said. “It took us basically all of four quarters to figure out what they were doing. . . . We had trouble with their zone.”

The teams had trouble getting away from each other as it was tied at 11 after one quarter and at 29 at the half with Rodriguez taking a 34-33 lead into the fourth quarter.

With the score tied at 49, Kyle Williams took a shot that rimmed out with the rebound going to Scott, who buried the game-winner.

Tim Moore Jr. led the Mustangs with 14 points, while Williams added 12 and Scott 10, six in the decisive fourth quarter.
