The Red Devils boys basketball team bested the Buckaroos 50-38 at home on Tuesday, Dec. 18 and remain undefeated so far this season. Grand County outscored Monticello in the first three quarters 8-7, 14-5, and 19-5.

The Buckaroos tried to bounce back in the fourth; Monticello knocked down a few three’s and scored 21 points compared to Grand’s nine, but it was way too little, way too late.

Connor Guerrero had 12 points, three assists and three rebounds. Nolan Ramirez had 10 points, four assists, and four steals. Cameron Hoppensteadt picked up nine points, three assists, and six rebounds. Teddy Park knocked down seven points, one assist, and two rebounds.

Kevin Park had a good game, too. Park had six points, one rebound, and one steal.

Park is not afraid to let the ball fly from three-point land and Park was a tough man to keep up with; on defense he was relentless and always in the Buckaroos’ faces.

Man-on-man coverage? No. In the first quarter, Park took on three men in pursuit of the ball.

Coach Scott Horton said: “The game went the way I wanted it to go...I wish we could have held them to less points [late in the game]...but it is what it is.”
