The barrage in the first half has to be one of the most, if not the most, points in the long history of YHS boys basketball.
Yuma scored the first 16 points and rose 27-7 at the end of the first quarter.
Then came the second quarter with 34 points, which was capped by two consecutive 3-pointers from Jesus Ross and Cade Morton with 61:19 at halftime. Scoring slowed down in the second half when the bank was emptied and a running clock was put in place in the fourth.
Yuma shot a hot 56 percent from a distance, made 14 of 25 three-point attempts and shot a total of 56 percent. Ironically, the Indians shot only 39 percent of the charity flick, making only seven out of 18. A total of seven players knocked down a 3-pointer, led by Ross who made four of six, Clay Robinson made four of seven and Forest Rutledge made two.
