The Carson High boys basketball program led 9-1 Reno High at the end of the first, second and third quarters Saturday.

However, a 25-6 fourth in favor of the Huskies saw Reno escape with a 54-43 win.

Reno head coach Matt Ochs was complimentary of Carson’s overall fight, stating that he thought the Senators outplayed Reno through three quarters.

“They played harder than we did. Coach Golden had them well prepared and they just played harder,” said Ochs. “We’re fortunate to leave with a win. … Decarlo Quintana, he’s a real good player. He’s a really tough matchup. You have to guard him all over the floor.”

Quintana led Carson with 12 points, all of which came in the second half.

Parker Story had eight points for the Senators, scoring six of those in the opening eight minutes.

“I thought Parker Story was a difference in the game early, just his energy, enthusiasm and his great hair. That would’ve been fun to watch, if I wasn’t the opposing coach,” added Ochs.

UP NEXT: Carson (2-4, 1-3) will head out to Dayton (1-4) today for a 5 p.m. tip.

Senator girls to reschedule against Reno

The Carson High girls basketball game with the Huskies Saturday was postponed, due to illness within the Senator team not leaving enough players to play over the weekend.

UP NEXT: Carson (0-5) will take on Dayton (3-1) Wednesday at 3 p.m.
