Career scoring nights by three different Washington Demon boys’ basketball (5-14 overall; 1-7 Southeast) players wasn’t enough to end their current losing streak. As heard on FM 106.1 and KCIIRadio.com, the Demons traveled to Fairfield for their final Southeast Conference clash of the season against the Trojans.

Fairfield lead within the first two minutes of the basketball game and never looked back as the Trojans defeated the Demons 61-54. Washington junior guard Derek Anding scored a career-high 29 points to lead the Demons. Washington freshman forward Javionn Willis, who came in scoring seven total points in two games this season, scored a career-high seven points off the bench in the 4th quarter. Also, senior guard Isaiah Zuehlke, who scored four points in 12 apperances prior to last night, scored a career-high five points off the bench for the Demons.

Fairfield senior forward Landon Greiner scored team-high 20 points and brought down five rebounds in his final home game for the Trojans. Junior guard Jordan Reid added 14 points in the victory. The win snaps a five game losing streak for the Trojans, who had allowed an average of 73.6 points per game during the streak.

Washington’s losing streak has been extended to eight games, dropping the Demons overall record to 5-14 and ended Southeast Conference play with just a win in eight games. The Demon boys’ basketball team returns to the floor tonight against the Williamsburg Raiders at Washington High School.
