Dallas win fifth straight as defense rises

Dallas moved into a two-way tie for second place in the Mid Willamette Conference withits fifth consecutive win, a 49-41 victory at Crescent Valley on Feb. 20. Dallas is now 8-4 in conference and Crescent Valley 7-5 with two games remaining.

 

The Dragons’ resurgence, following a 3-4 record in the first round of league games, has been keyed on defense. The streak includes a 43-19 win over Central representing the lowest point total by any boys 5A or 6A game this season. The other points-allowed totalsin the streak were 27, 45, 44 and 41. Dallas surrenders 44 points per game, the third lowest figure in 5A ball.

 

Crescent Valley shot only 23 percent from the field, and intimidation may have been a factor—10 of their shots were blocked.Coach Trent Schwartz, in his third season as head coach of the Dragons, said, “I think thedefense jelling of late is a by-product of a combination of factors including:

 

1. Experience: We have a lot of seniors who have played significant minutes since their sophomore year and our younger kids are high on intellect, which enables us to run a few different looks at offensives.

 

2. Communication: The kids have done a great job of communicating defensive changes and on screens within a particular defense.

 

3. Length and athleticism: We have size and speed to be able to be good at several different styles of defense. 

 

4. They’ve bought in to the fact that, even on nights when you’re not shooting a high percentage from the field, you will always be in games with good defense. They pride themselves in keeping another team's offense under wraps. It is easier to have a solid defensive effort game in and game out than offensively.”

Dallas gives Central record-setting throttling

The Dallas Dragons produced a defensive gem, upsetting Central on the road 43-19 Feb. 10 and sending the Panthers to their fourth loss in their last five games.

 

Before the tailspin, Central was the top-ranked team in the Mid Willamette Conference. Against Dallas, a team they had beaten 57-55 in January, they could not mount a threat, falling behind 13-2 in the first quarter on their way to the lowest point total for any 5A or 6A boys team in Oregon this season.

 

Dallas has two third-year starters in Hayden Broadus and Spencer McCarron, both of whom were honorable mention all-league last year, and another returning starter in Broadus’ brother Harrison, a sophomore. While this trio has not increased its offensive output this year, they are part of a team that has bought into defense.

 

The Dragons put pressure on the dribbler and seal off penetration while their big men, Broadus and Brad Huey, both of whom are 6-6, surrender few uncontested layins. Huey weighs about 250 pounds and earned honorable mention all-state as a defensive lineman. He’s become a rebounding and shot-blocking force despite limited speed and spring by moving his feet and not jumping prematurely. He had six boards and four blocks against Central.

 

The defensive sparkplug of the team, however, is Everett Minahan, a fast 6-1 junior with an uncanny ability to deflect dribbles. He had four steals at Central.The Dragon’s offense, boosted by fast breaks off turnovers, was efficient enough. The team attempted only five threes.

 

Central’s Kaj Bansen, a rail-thin 6-4 guard, has been averaging about 20 points per game,but he was thoroughly stymied. He couldn’t get open looks from outside, and couldn’t drive through the Dallas defense, which was primarily man-to-man. His only score came on a desperation three at the first quarter buzzer.

 

Silverton (9-0) has a virtual lock on the conference title, while Dallas and Central (both 5-4) are in a four-team cluster battling for second place.
