DENVER, Colorado ” An early hole proved too much for Glenwood Springs to overcome in its second boys basketball contest of the season on Thursday.

Falling behind 28-7 to Mountain Vista after a quarter, the Demons stumbled to a 92-71 loss in the first round of the D’Evelyn High School-hosted Preview Classic.

Kevin Screen scored 20 points to lead the Demons against the Class 5A school from Highlands Ranch. Patrick Hailey added 18 points, Kevin Flohr 11 and William Rosas nine.

Jordan Smith poured in 16 points to lead Mountain Vista. Eric Anderson added 14, Joe Luehrs 13 and Phil Wells 12.

“They were a rather large team, them being a 5A team,” Glenwood head coach Greg Hire said. “They really outmanned us on the boards.”

The Demons return to the floor at D’Evelyn today at 5:30 p.m. against either D’Evelyn or Pueblo Central.

MEEKER, Colorado ” Hayden’s big frontcourt overpowered Grand Valley’s basketball girls in the schools’ Thursday Meeker Shootout opener.

Despite 17 points from Erin Vanderpool, the Cardinals dropped into the consolation bracket with a 58-40 loss to the Tigers.

Grand Valley led 14-12 after one quarter before Vanderpool and Kasi Jensen got into foul trouble. By halftime, the Cardinals were down by 12.

“Hayden’s big,” Grand Valley head coach Mike Johnson said. “They’re 6-(foot)-1, 5-11 and 5-11 up front, and they’ve got two or three big girls coming off the bench. That was tough for us to handle.”

Johnson’s Cardinals return to the court at Meeker to face Middle Park today at 3 p.m. The tournament continues through Saturday.
