Grand Junction’s Drew Derrieux, 1, goes up for the layup during Friday’s game against Gateway at the Warrior Classic held at Central High School.

Derrieux’s weekend impresses older sister

On a cold January night in 2012, Jamie Derrieux led the Grand Junction High School girls basketball team to a lopsided win over Central, posting a career-high 38 points in the process.

After the outstanding performance, Jamie made a bet with her younger brother, Drew, still in middle school at the time, that he couldn’t match that scoring output. Family bragging rights hung in the balance after that night.

Fast forward nearly five years, and Drew dropped 30 points on Gateway during his second varsity start of his senior year at Grand Junction High School this past weekend.

Jamie teased her younger brother about the scoring total, but followed it up with words of encouragement and support.

Sibling rivalry at its finest.
