TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Salpointe Catholic made 11 three-point shots Friday night at home on their way to a 59-46 win over Scottsdale Saguaro.

Lancer junior guard Rylan O'Brien contributed six of those treys as he led all scorers with 20 points.

Salpointe Catholic jumped out to a six-nothing lead on back-to-back three-pointers by sophomore star Majok Deng. He finished with 12 points.

The Lancers (9-2) never trailed on their way to a sixth straight victory, scoring all 18 of their first quarter points from behind the three-point line.

Saguaro (7-3) lost for a second straight game on the heels of a six-game win streak.

Sabercats star senior guard Jake Lieppert, who came in averaging 25 points a game, was held to just 13 by the Lancers.

Salpointe Catholic now has a 13-day break until they face Chandler Basha to open the Mesa Basketball Challenge on December 29. The Bears are the top team in Conference 6A as well as number one overall team in the state of Arizona.
