Basketball: Basalt boys extend unbeaten streak
December 19, 2015
The Basalt High School boys basketball team will charge into the holiday break with momentum — and a perfect record.
The Longhorns pushed their unbeaten start to 3-0 on Saturday at Cedaredge with a 64-46 nonconference victory.
"In the first half, we played a great half," Basalt head coach Danny Martinez said.
But foul trouble slowed them a bit in the second half, he said.
"And I still like our defense," Martinez said.
Raul Torres stepped up with a season-high 20 points for the Basalt boys.
