Dexter 81, Eunice 47

DEXTER — Dexter’s David Lopez poured in 20 points as the Demons improved to 14-6 with a dominating victory over Eunice on Tuesday.

“We pressured (Eunice) and played our typical style of basketball,” Dexter coach James Voight said. “To be honest, we didn’t play the best defensive game we could have. A part of that was we haven’t played a game in 10 days. It was good to get back out on the floor finally.”

Amador Amaya and Kevin Bonner had 11 points each for Dexter.
