Price blitzes Windward in second half
By Blair Angulo
LOS ANGELES -- A shift in gameplan was the key in Price's 65-41 win against Windward on Saturday afternoon at the Fairfax State Preview Classic.
The Knights played a smothering style of basketball after halftime, outscoring the Wildcats 26-5 in the third quarter. Junior guard Chance Murray netted a game-high 14 points and Price (17-5) had three others score in double digits.
"Coach [Michael] Lynch put an emphasis on us getting to the basket," Murray said.
Price has won six straight since losing at the Brandon Jennings Invitational in Milwaukee, an experience that, according to Murray, was valuable.
"Now we don't want to lose any more games," he said.
Windward has lost three of its last four. Point guard Charles Dawson had 12 points. The Wildcats actually held a 26-23 lead at the break, but they couldn't keep up with the Knights' run-and-gun tempo.
"That's the game we like to play," said Skylar Spencer, who had 10 points and altered a number of shots on the defensive end.
