Submitted By Mike Heightchew
The top-seeded Newark Cougars seem to have found their stride just at the right time, heading into the Semifinals of Division II. Following an impressive win over Casa Grande, JoJo Zamora and Joey Frenchwood put on an offensive show on Saturday, February 23, running up 41 points as the Las Lomas (Walnut Creek) Knight defense was unable to stop them. Jo Jo Zamora scored 22 points and Joey Frenchwood, 19; 16 of the 19 in the second and third quarters.
As the Cougar offense was providing offensive firepower, the Cougar defense led by Damien Banford and Mathew Thomas, took control of the middle and denied the Knights any second opportunity shots on the basket; Cougar speed shut down Las Lomas shooting lanes.
The next big showdown for the Cougars is No. 4 Montgomery (23-7) on Wednesday at home at 7 p.m.
