Like Brandon Jennings and Jerryd Bayless before him, Wildcat recruit Brendan Lavender got to play a high school game on his future home court. His Mesa Mountain View team could not hold an early fourth quarter lead and fell 54-47 To Tucson High.
Lavender scored 17 points, but never got comfortable in the offense. He tried to get his teammates involved most of the night, sacrificing his own shots to get his teammates looks.
A four of Lavender's field goals came from behind the arc. He made 4-7 three pointers and was 4-9 from the field.
Tucson high outscored the Toros 20-12 in the fourth quarter to take the win.
Lavender showed off his range with two of his threes coming from beyond 20-feet.
