CAC Surges to Win Over Indian Hills

The Central Arizona College men's basketball team used a second-half surge to rally past 11th-ranked Indian Hills 84-77 on Tuesday night at the George Young Activity Center.

The No. 18 Vaqueros trailed 43-31 at halftime before outscoring the Warriors 53-34 in the second half.

"We defended," CAC coach Jordan Dreiling said. "We rebounded it well. Our offense started clicking. We started knocking down open shots. I was really proud of them for staying together and fighting together and pulling it out in the end. I thought our effort collectively was awesome. Everybody played a role."

Five players scored in double figures for the Vaqueros, who improved to 12-3 on the season. Indian Hills fell to 14-2.

DesJuan Newton led the way for CAC with 18 points, while Austin Cooke finished with 17 points and eight rebounds. Cooke made 5 of 7 shots from three-point range.
