Knights Break Records in 86-Point Win Over Cuyamaca


The Knights made a statement in the conference opener on Friday night by scoring the first 12 points of the game and going on to break several team records in a 123-37 rout of Cuyamaca. 

The 123 points were the most for the Knights in recorded history and the 86-point margin of victory was the largest in team history. 

City controlled every aspect of the game from the tip as they jumped out to a 12-0 lead which grew to 21-2 a couple minutes later and then went into the locker room with a 47-20 halftime advantage. 

The second half started similarly as the first with the Knights scoring the first 10 points to go ahead by 37 points with 17:51 left. 

Then the Knights really caught fire from distance as they made 16 of their record 23 3-pointers in the second half while shooting 57.1 percent. They shot 60.4 percent overall in the second half and scored a record 76 points. 

City had 21 assists in the second half and a record 31 for the game, including nine from Isaac Davis. He also made 4 3s for 12 points off the bench and grabbed five rebounds. 

Joseph Riley scored a season-high 18 points, also off the bench. He went 6-for-9 on 3s and dished out four assists. 

A total of four bench players scored in double figures, including Adrian Byrd-Jelinek who put in 12 points with six rebounds, and Trevor Drake who scored 10 points. 

The Knights' nine bench players combined to score a record 75 points and made 19 of the team's 23 3s.

Starters Wonder Smith and Robert McCoy each had 14 points. 

The victory was City's 13 in a row as the Knights improved to 20-2 overall and 1-0 in the PCAC South. They have now won 19 straight conference games and 33 of the last 35. 

City's next game will be on the road at Grossmont on Wednesday, January 17 at 7 p.m. It will be the second meeting of the season with the Knights winning the first, 96-67, on December 3 to claim the Grossmont Tournament championship.
