The Rim of the World High School boys basketball hosted the Serrano High School Diamondbacks on Nov. 3 in a pre-season, non-conference game. Serano came out very strong against the Fighting Scots, shutting down their offense.

The Diamondbacks quickly jumped out in front with a 14-point lead in the first period of play. The Scots’ Gianni Navarro hit two three-point baskets for six points, ending the first period of play with Serrano, 24, Rim, 10.

During the second period of play, the Fighting Scots kept up the pressure, but as hard as they rose to the challenge, they were not able to slow down the Diamondbacks. Serrano dominated play as they extended their lead by 19, finishing the half with a score of Serrano 39, Fighting Scots, 20.

The third period of play was much like the first two. The Diamondbacks dominated the game, holding the Fighting Scots to only 10 points. In the fourth period, the Diamondbacks made some substitutions and Rim of the World’s offensive game took off, but it was not enough and the final score was Diamondbacks, 73, Fighting Scots, 57.

Navarro finished the game with 19 points, followed by Jeremy Marquez with 7, CJ King with 6 and Noah Mendez with 5 points.

Come out to support the next home game as the Fighting Scots boys basketball team hosts the San Gorgonio High School’s Spartans on Dec. 17. The game starts at 6:30 p.m., but make sure to arrive early for a good seat!
