YUMA, Ariz. - The Brawley Wildcats boys basketball team begins their season with aspirations of trying to repeat as Imperial Valley League champions and even CIF-San Diego Section Division 4 champions.
They would begin their 2-game Yuma area road swing, as they paid a visit to the Gila Ridge Hawks.
The Cats would get off to a fast start, as they wouldn't allow the Hawks to score a single field goal before they put 19 points on the board in the 1st quarter.
The sizable lead would prove to be too much for Gila Ridge, as the Cats would secure the 77 to 49 win.
Gila Ridge's Samuel Miner had 24 points and 11 rebounds in the loss.
