St. Ignatius routs Mission in Sand Dune Classic opener

Two mismatched styles of basketball came together Thursday evening in a first round Sand Dune Classic game at St. Ignatius. On one hand, you had the Mission Bears from the San Francisco Academic Athletic Association. The Bears are not particularly big and play a frenetic style of basketball. On the other hand, the St. Ignatius Wildcats have seven players over 6'2" and played a much more controlled tempo of basketball. Additionally, the Wildcats have probably the best player in the tournament in 5'10 senior guard Trevor Dunbar.

The Bears came out firing early to surprise the Wildcats. However, Dunbar and the deeper Wildcats never panicked. The Wildcats held a 23-16 lead after one quarter and a 52-29 at half time as they cruised to a 91-60 win over the Bears.

The host Wildcats advanced to face the Canby Cougars (Oregon) in a winner's bracket game. Canby defeated the Skyline Titans (Oakland) 65-49 in another first round game. Mission will take on Skyline in the loser's bracket game.
