Basketball is a game of complex strategies, but the success or failure of those strategies depends on the most elemental component of the game — the ability to put the ball in the basket.

Scorpions freshman Dawson Stevenson shoots a jump shot over several Mingus Marauders in Sedona Red Rock's game against Mingus on Tuesday, Dec. 3 at the MUHS gymnasium.Such was the case with Sedona Red Rock High School in the Scorpions’ loss Tuesday, Nov. 3, at Mingus Union High School.
The Scorpions didn’t convert many of their shot opportunities, while the Marauders seemed like they were unable to miss any shots on their way to a convincing 67-33 victory.

“I appreciate my guys who are in there fighting and our freshman stepping up, but our older guys have got to play better,” Scorpions head coach Greg Strickling said. “My younger guys played with higher efficiency than my older guys, and we can’t win that way. We depend on the older guys a lot.”

One of the “younger guys,” freshman Dawson Stevenson, started for the Scorpions and scored 11 points, tying junior Tristan Decker for the team lead. But another player the Scorpions were counting on to help lead the team, transfer Cristian Paredas, was unable to play in the game.

“Cris is our floor leader, he’s our guy, but we haven’t been able to play him yet,” Strickling said. “I feel for our guys because they prepared hard in the offseason.”
