This week, I’ve seen a combined four quarters of Mission Hills and five quarters of Mira Mesa at the Madison Regional Rumble. Today, the Grizzlies outlasted the Marauders 58-51 to finish the tournament with a 3-1 record, the lone loss coming against St. Augustine.
Here are some takeaways from this under-the-radar game.
Mission Hills defense is tremendous
From its fullcourt press to its pack-line defense in the halfcourt, the Grizzlies are stingy on the defensive side of the ball. In the loss to St. Augustine, the Saints only scored 46 points. 2021 PG Austin Schultz puts pressure on the ball at the point of attack, while the other defenders are disciplined, contest finishes and cut off drives.
