Davis County routs Moravia

BLOOMFIELD — The Davis County boys basketball team led 24-2 over a very young Moravia team after the first quarter, then cruised to a 67-15 win Saturday night in boys non-conference basketball action. Fourteen different Mustangs played, and 12 of them made the scorebook.

The Mustangs scored the game’s first 20 points before Trevor Cormeny’s basket got the visitors on the board. Damen Dixon, Park Mikels, and Calvin Utt wreaked havoc on the perimeter and each got off to fast starts for DC. They combined for 20 of the first quarter Mustang points. Mikels had the big quarter with nine of his game high 11.

“Any game is about being prepared and playing hard,” said Mikels. “We weren’t going to look ahead because we have almost a week to get ready for our next game.”

The second quarter followed the same pattern as the first. This time, however, the DC big men opened the scoring. Colton Roberts and Wyatt Garmon combined for six points and the Mustangs led 30-2. Caleb Windschitl turned a steal into a basket for the Mohawks to stop the DC run. Windschitl added a later basket for a four point quarter. Dixon’s seven points led the Mustangs in the second and ended his 10-point night.The Mustangs led 48-8 at the half.

“We try and base everything we do on mental preparation and focus. We want to not over or under hype any game,” said Davis County coach Jeff Graves. “I think we showed a good early focus tonight.”

With the initiation  of the running clock in basketball, many games play a quicker second half than the first. With Davis County using many different combinations, the Davis County lead was 54-10 after three.

“Earlier we had called off our transition game,” said Graves. “I thought some of the later combinations did a good job of moving the ball from side to side on offense.”

Sophomore Clay Roberts had two buckets in the third to lead DC.

“I always concentrate on finding a way to contribute.” said Roberts. “I try and learn how the game is going from the older guys and how they're playing.”

 Wyatt Garmon, Tucker Armstrong, and Zeb Black had two baskets each to close out the DC scoring. Jonathon Johnson’s 3 closed out the Mohawk scoring and the time ran out on the 67-15 Mustang victory.

Moravia coach Brian Bickel talked about his young team.

“There are certain basketball things that we always want to see in any game,” he said. “Shot fakes and defensive rotation are just a couple of things we look for. This team is growing because they have a good attitude.”

Moravia (2-14) will be in action next when they host Seymour in district play on Monday, Feb. 11. The Mustangs (10-10) travel E-B-F Friday.
