"I am extremely proud of our defense. Led by Landon Camp and Chase Richey. Landon had the assignment of limiting their leading scorer, and he held him to 3 2-point field goals and 4 free throws," expressed Saltillo Coach Bill Giles. "Chase, did a great job of "helping", in the post area and out on the perimeter. We also had outstanding play from our non-starters, freshman Davison and Daniel, Connor Moss, David Barajas and Edward Jaimie."
