The Jacks fell behind early and never recovered against the league’s biggest and tallest team. The Mustangs (7-4) behind Cardelle Jones’ 18 points took a seven-point lead into the second quarter and kept extending the lead throughout the game.
The Jacks (3-8) were paced by Mark Horning with 10 points, Johan Farias with nine points and Kevin Flores with seven points.
Ephrata 40, Quincy 34
Once again the Jacks fell behind. This time Ephrata (10-1) jumped out to a 17-9 lead. But Quincy was able to chip away at the lead and pulled with in four points midway through the fourth quarter. The score was 33-29 with just under four minutes to play.
The Quincy defense limited the top team in the CWAC to 40 points, but were unable to knock down the shots they needed to make up the four point difference.
Quincy was led by Flores with 17 points. The senior made a trio of three-pointers and shot all four of Quincy’s free throws.
Others: Horning (6), Farias (4), Diaz (4), Daniel Garcia (2), Eric Navarro (2).
