BAKERSFIELD — The Paraclete boys basketball team defeated Corcoran 78-47 on Thursday to open the Highway 58 Tournament in Bakersfield.

Mister Burnside led the Spirits (2-0) with 20 points, while Dylan Cox put in 19, Donavan Ware added 11 and DJ Phillips put in 10 points.

“It was the second night in a row shared the ball extremely well,” Paraclete coach Newton Chelette said. “We easily had 15 to 20 assists. Defensively, we were very, very active. With as athletic as we are that’s the key, being active on defense and sharing the ball.”
