STAFF REPORT

Kyle Moorby scored 14 points and Josh Davi finished with 13 to help visiting Davenport to a 52-40 non-league boys basketball victory over Delhi on Monday.

Davi had 10 of his points, including a pair of three-pointers, during the fourth quarter, when the Wildcats outscored Delhi, 18-9.

“We just didn’t match their intensity consistently,” Delhi coach Warren Kelly said.

The Bulldogs started fast, outscoring Davenport, 13-3, in the opening quarter. Alex Specht scored five of his game-high 16 points in the opening quarter.

“We were hurting them on the offensive glass and getting second-chance shots,” said Delhi coach Warren Kelly, who also received 10 points from Michael Staples.

Davenport rallied to take a 21-19 halftime lead, outscoring Delhi, 18-6, in the second quarter. Moorby scored seven points and Corey Hartman contributed all seven of his points in the period.

“They really revved up their defensive intensity,” Kelly said.

Matthew Finne and Andre Dewitt finished with eight points apiece for the Wildcats.

Delhi (4-2) will host Afton on Wednesday.
