The Red Devils basketball team defeated the Grand Junction Tigers 85-82 on Wednesday, Jan. 8, at the first home game of 2020. Grand played catch-up and trailed the Tigers for three quarters. Grand Junction was a graceful beast that could speed up and slow down at will, and by the end of the evening the Red Devils had learned to match their opponent’s moves. Late in the third and in the fourth quarter, Grand’s offense put up the points to take the lead, but defense won the day.
