For our point guard to distribute the ball like that is excellent. “Any time you can get a win at Whittier is good because they’re tough to beat in their gym. They bring it every night. There is not a moment you can rest.” Hugo Cisneros led Whittier (6-11, 0-2) with 10 points. Ed Kim and Daniel Enriquez scored nine points apiece for the host Cardinals. “There’s a lot of stuff to work on,” Whittier coach Mike Varos said. “I was really impressed with Enriquez. It was his first varsity game.” The Dons’ perimeter game quickly caught fire as they raced out to a 9-2 lead. All nine points came from 3-point range. Avina made two of the 3-pointers, with the second coming after a Palomera steal. last_img read more
