The Newark Cougars held on to an undefeated record in the Mission Valley Athletic League Friday day night at Newark, besting the Washington Huskies 65-32. The Cougar's well-balanced attack from every part of the court as well as great court presence and speed was impressive.
Transitions between offensive power and defensive protection of their basket allowed the Cougars to capitalize on Husky miscues and set up for fast breaks from rebounds. It appeared that Damien Banford (5) was able to take the ball to the hoop at will and Paramvir Singh (23) had complete control of the paint.
The rest of the team added punch to the lineup and contributed to an outstanding performance for the Cougars. At this time, it is hard to see anyone in MVAL can slow the Cougar machine. The remaining question is if any NCS team will stand in their way.
