FRISCO, TX – The Santa Cruz Warriors (4-4) fell to the Texas Legends (4-3) tonight at the Comerica Center in Frisco, 113-107.
Santa Cruz Warriors center Deyonta Davis logged 18 points and a career-high 15 rebounds in 25 minutes tonight. Guard Jeremy Pargo scored 17 points and dished a game-high 14 assists while guard Andrew Harrison scored a team-high 20 points, his second 20-point night off the bench this season.
The Legends were led by reserve guard Trahson Burrell, who had a season-high 23 points to go with six rebounds. Reserve center Aric Holman established new season-highs of 18 points, with four made three pointers, and 11 rebounds in 25 minutes off the bench. Center Chad Brown also logged a new season-high with 17 rebounds tonight in just 23 minutes.
Despite falling behind by ten points early in the matchup, Harrison’s made three-pointer at the end of the first quarter gave Santa Cruz their first lead of the night, 28-27.

A late 9-2 Warriors run brought the game to a 105-105 tie with 2:39 remaining, but an 8-2 Legends run that started with two-way guard Antonius Cleveland’s putback layup and ended with three Nate Mason free throws finalized the Texas victory.
