Phoenix boys hold off Hidden Valley

PHOENIX — Tyler Dungannon helped slam the door on scrappy Hidden Valley in Skyline Conference boys basketball Friday.

Dungannon made both ends of a pressure-packed one-and-one opportunity at the foul line late in the fourth quarter to quell any comeback hopes by the Mustangs as the Pirates secured a 66-55 home victory.

"That was the big play of the fourth quarter," Phoenix coach Glenn Johannes said of Dungannon's free throws. "Down the stretch we were composed. We did the little things that made the big things possible."

Phoenix (11-4, 4-1 Skyline) converted 6 of 7 free throws in the final period.

Dungannon led the Pirates in rebounding with eight and scored 15 points. The junior guard was efficient offensively — shooting 5-of-9 from the field and 5-of-6 from the foul line.

"Tyler is staying within himself," said Johannes, "and taking the open shots when they are there. He's getting points on minimal shots."

Junior point guard Alex Young had another strong all-around game for Pirates, ranked fifth in the Class 4A coaches poll. Young notched 19 points, eight rebounds, six assists and three steals.

Phoenix also received important contributions from reserves Travis Campoy, Tim Keith and Luke Brown.

"Campoy stepped up big and made three points in a crucial point in the game," said Johannes. "Our bench is starting to play well and that's big for us."

Hidden Valley (7-10, 2-3) was paced by Jeff Suthann's 15 points, with Braden Monnet and Kyle Garrison adding 11 points each.
