A share of the SWL title eludes Demons at DHS

Durango loses big at home to Grand Junction in its finale
Isiah Mayberry and the Durango Demons couldn’t block enough Grand Junction shots Saturday in a 63-47 loss at DHS. “We just came out pretty bad in the first half,” Mayberry said.
The referees became a part of the game early and often Saturday. Several delays were caused with some confusion on the court. There wasn’t any confusion about the final result, however: a resounding Grand Junction victory to clinch the Tigers’ Southwestern League regular-season championship.
Isiah Mayberry did his best to drive to the basket, but it was tough to convert past Grand Junction’s 6-7 junior center DJ Wells. “We were pretty hesitant at first going into the paint,” said Mayberry, who finished with a team-high 11 points and seven rebounds in the Demons’ 63-47 loss Saturday at DHS.
Terrence Trujillo and the Durango Demons did their best to dribble past a tough Grand Junction team, but the Demons turned the ball over 13 times in the first half. “I wouldn’t doubt them having 28 to 30 points off our turnovers,” DHS head coach Alan Batiste said.
Lucas Baken and the Durango Demons couldn’t get enough shots up Saturday against Grand Junction. The Demons were just 11-of-27 shooting from the field and 3-of-8 from behind the 3-point line.
Dane Mestas and the Durango Demons were treading water in a pool of sharks every time they drove into the paint Saturday. When Mestas was able to penetrate, he had success. Mestas finished with six points on 2-of-2 shooting from the field.
