RANCHO CUCAMANGA – The Glendora High School boys’ basketball team bounced back from Friday’s loss with an important win over the Los Osos Grizzlies 46-31 Tuesday night in a Baseline League matchup.

Kyle Gordon’s double-double (16 points, 10 rebounds) led the way for the Tartans who had to find ways to score as leading scorer Nick Colletta could only muster eight points, but did get five rebounds and a steal.

“It’s not only Nick (Colletta),” Glendora head coach Mike LeDuc said, “but WE as a team has to   shoot better. If we couldn’t score, then we tried to turn up the defense to limit their scoring,”

Glendora’s defense only allowed Los Osos three points in the fourth quarter, as Gordon would score nine of his 16 points in the final quarter to put the game out of reach.

Wesley Burke stepped up to the challenge, also scoring 16 along with seven rebounds, two steals and an assist.

“Wes (Burke) hit a couple of big three-pointers for us,” LeDuc said, “and our defense got us some easy baskets also.”

Jonathon Solomon led the way for the Grizzlies, with eight points, and three rebounds.  Haris Patail tallied seven points and four rebounds while Drake Madkin added six points and three rebounds.

Glendora (16-6, 3-2) begins its second round of league play as they travel to league leader Etiwanda Friday evening.  Etiwanda defeated the tartans earlier this year 56-35.  Tipoff is at 6:30pm.

Glendora (46) – Wesley Burke (16), Kyle Gordon (16), Nick Colletta (8),  Lucio Bolado (2),  Steven Hernandez (2), Christian Schneider (2)

Los Osos (31) – Jonathon Solomon (8),  Haris Patail (7), Drake Madkin (6), Levi Smith (4), Andre Robinson (2), Ryan Coleman (2), Oliver Amajoyi (2)
