Gallegos' 30 points gives Grandview a good look at Breck offense
Breckenridge junior guard Rigo Gallegos was red hot in the Bucks 64-56 playoff warm-up victory over the Grandview Zebras.
Gallegos drained six-of-nine 3-point attempts and finished with a career-high 30 points.
"They kept leaving me open, so I kept shooting it," Gallegos said. "I didn't know I had that many points until somebody said something at the end of the game."
The Bucks fell behind early, but bounced back to claim a 13-11 advantage at the end of the first quarter.
Breckenridge used a 19-4 second-quarter run to cruise to a 32-15 lead at the half.
The Bucks led by as many as 22 points in the second half.
Grandview cut the margin to 15 points as the third quarter ended at 46-31 for Breckenridge.
The Zebras made a fourth-quarter run, but never got closer than eight points.
"We got a little sloppy at the end and didn't finish the way we should have," Bucks coach Rob Ogle said. "We didn't play smart at the end and gave up some points while stopping the clock. Overall though, it was a good win against a good team."
The Bucks connected on ten shots from beyond the arc. Gallegos made six while junior guard Caleb Spoon sank three and junior guard Clay Boaz added one.
Spoon chipped in with 17 points while senior post Lane Morris reached double figures with 10 points.
Boaz finished with three points. Sophomore Anthony Ramirez and senior post Alex Benitez each added two points.
