PRESCOTT—Prescott boys basketball played Garfield-Palouse on Friday December 13th for their first conference game of the year. #23 Miguel Ayala would open the scoring for Prescott with a bucket in the lane. Prescott took an early 6-3 lead in the first quarter, before losing the lead by giving up open three pointers to Garfield-Palouse. Those open shots allowed GP to go on a run and end the 1st quarter up 14-11.
Late in the second quarter, #12 Jonathan Cardenas tied the game at 25-25 with 1:21 left with an NBA distance three pointer. Both teams had chances to take the lead. Prescott’s #25 Andrew Patzkowski broke out in front of the defense on a breakaway but couldn’t quite come up with the ball and the half ended in a tie at 25-25.
The third quarter was a frustrating one for Prescott, as no shots were dropping for them. In addition, turnovers due to traveling calls and passes that found their way out of bounds hurt them. This allowed GP to build an eight-point lead on free throws and inside shots in the lane.
In the fourth quarter Prescott was out rebounded amid continued shooting struggles. The highlight of the quarter was #3 Victor Garcia’s free throw to complete the three-point play after being fouled. Prescott would lose the game 46-32.
