No. 9 Vista runs away from Rancho Bernardo

With pressure defense and a frenetic offense, No. 9 Vista has the capability to score points in bunches. Trailing in the second half against Rancho Bernardo Tuesday night, the Panthers did exactly that, going on a 31-4 run en route to a 70-53 win.

“We try to run a fast paced defense and let it flow into our offense,” said Vista guard Eric Miller.

In the middle of Vista’s massive run, Miller had it all working offensively. The junior guard scored 11 of his game-high 23 points in the third quarter, including the final seven of the quarter as the Panthers opened up an 11-point lead.

“I was just letting the offense come to me, passing the ball around to my teammates and luckily I made those shots,” Miller said.

Vista started the fourth quarter the same way they finished the third, extending their lead to 19 early in the fourth. By the time Rancho Bernardo recovered, the game was already out of reach.

“They came out in the same press, got after us and caused some turnovers,” said Rancho Bernardo coach Jim Choe. “One thing led to another, they had a couple of baskets that gave them a spark and deflated us a little bit. We couldn’t really stop that run.”

Prior to their second half outburst, Vista struggled in the first half. Rancho Bernardo started off the game with a 10-3 lead and led at the end of the first and second quarters. The Broncos led by eight in the third quarter when the Panthers started their run, keyed by turnovers and transition buckets.

“They have tremendous athletes. They get in the passing lanes, they jump, they trap, they’re really aggressive,” Choe said. “We just had a little bit of a hiccup.”

Guard Stephen Que (17 points) and forward Sedrick Childress (10 points) also finished in double figures for Vista (14-3, 1-0 Palomar), who won their sixth straight game. Guard Alex Aguirre led Rancho Bernardo (10-9, 0-1) with 14 points, and center Tanner Clayton chipped in with 10.

“It was a really important win to start off the week strong and show that we’re a team to compete,” Miller said. “We work hard and we get it done on defense.”

31-4! What a game to have been at. Scoring runs like that are very rare in league play of this level of competition. Kudos to Vista.
