That goal was met, and then some. The Black Raiders turned in their most dominating effort in years, taking a 78-21 win over the Huskies.

Winslow is now 9-3, while MCI is 3-9.

“We had a really good practice (Thursday),” Winslow coach Jared Browne said. “We got to work on a lot of things, coming off a tough loss at Oceanside.”

The Black Raiders never trailed, and led 24-6 after one quarter. MCI committed nine of its 22 turnovers in the first quarter. Browne called the game the team’s best defensive effort in his three seasons as Winslow coach.

“We really gave ourselves an opportunity in the first quarter,” senior guard Trevor Lovely said. “We haven’t has a great defensive game like that in a while.”

Browne substituted frequently, and with a 62-14 lead at the end of three quarters, Winslow’s starters sat the entire fourth. Lovely scored a game-high 26 points in three quarters, while Justin Martin scored 17 points and grabbed eight rebounds. Eleven players scored for Winslow.

Mitchell Hallee led MCI with nine points and 10 rebounds.
