JEFFERSON VARSITY DEFEATS HALF MOON BAY

Jefferson avenged an eighteen point loss to Half Moon Bay on January 9th by defending its home court in the league rematch tonight.  The Grizzlies were by far the more physical of the two teams.  Differences were the 21 times to the charity stripe for the home team versus 6 for the visitors (inclusive of 2 as the result of a Marquez Costintiano technical foul).  The other big differentiator was the performance of senior guard and co-captain of Jefferson, Daniel Benjamin.  He went from a 1 point night on 0 for 11 shooting earlier in the month to leading all scorers with 15 points inclusive of 6 of 7 from the line in the series finale.  The Cougars return to league action Wednesday evening at Oceana.
