Windsor moved to within one game of a perfect North Bay League season Wednesday night as the Jaguars handled visiting Rancho Cotate 62-38.
Windsor is 13-0 and wraps up the regular season Friday night at Maria Carrillo. Overall, the Jaguars are 22-3 and have won 14 in a row.
Rancho kept the game close early and trailed 30-22 at halftime. However, in the third quarter, the Jaguars outscored the Cougars 23-4.
Windsor didn’t allow a field goal in the third quarter with Rancho’s only points coming from the free throw line.
“In the first half, we were lethargic,” coach Travis Taylor said. “We played hard in the third quarter, making the most of every possession and valuing the little things.”
Guard Chaise Noles scored a season-high 13 points for Windsor. Gabe Knight contributed nine and Parker Canady and Riley Smith had eight apiece.
For the Cougars, Alec Wong scored 11 and Tyler Cox finished with nine.
At the beginning of the season, coach Taylor thought his team could win league but he didn’t focus on sweeping his NBL opponents.
“I thought we had the talent to win the title if we worked hard,” he said. “Now, it’s about not being satisfied just doing that.”
