San Diego High School Basketball : San Dieguito Wins in 4th Quarter With Defense and Free Throws

January 15, 1987

A strong defensive effort and near-perfect free-throw shooting in the final quarter gave the San Dieguito High School boys' basketball team a 48-43 Palomar League victory over Poway Wednesday night at San Dieguito.

"That is probably the finest defensive effort that players I've coached have ever produced," said San Dieguito Coach Brian Daly. "We pretty much dictated the pace of the game with our defense."

San Dieguito (2-0, 8-5) led from start, but only by one, 36-35, entering the final quarter. But San Dieguito quickly widened the margin and Poway (0-3, 8-6) was forced to foul. San Dieguito's Chris Bahr made 6 of 7 free throws and the team made 8 of 9 in the fourth quarter.

Bahr led all scorers with 16 points. He also had 7 rebounds, and Jack Minger added 10 points and 5 rebounds.


Mt. Carmel 61, Orange Glen 45--Mike Wasserburger scored 17 points and Tim Coleman added 14 to lead Mt. Carmel at Orange Glen. Mt.
