On Thursday, December 8, 2016, the Miners took on the Tribe in a non-conference game. With this win, the Miners improve their win streak to three games and record to (5-1), leaving the Tribe with a record of (1-3).
The story of the night was El Diamante’s Junior guard Seth Hall scoring a game high of 14 points. During the Miners 22-6 run in the first half, Hall went three for four from downtown during this run. Senior Diego Lacey also contributed on the offensive end scoring 13 points. Junior captain Jake Gonzalez added seven as well as freshman Kaleb Daglesh.
A big reason the Miners had won was because of their defense limiting the Tribe’s offense to under 50 points which is El Diamante’s Coach Moore goal for every game. If the Miners continue to play like they are currently playing they have a good chance at competing for the WYL title.
