Tigers’ balance nets big victory

The Grand Junction High School boys basketball team came together with a good all-around effort in a rare Monday afternoon game.
Andrew Hansen seemed to be in the mix all over the court and Drew Derrieux poured in 24 points to lead the Tigers to a 60-42 win over Ralston Valley.
“We had balanced scoring and balanced defense and we really played well together,” Hansen said. “There wasn’t one guy out there trying to do too much.”
