ORLANDO — The Del Norte High boys varsity basketball team cruised to a 60-43 victory in the opening round of the Pre-Holiday basketball tournament at the Walt Disney World resort on Thursday

The Warriors (6-0) defeated Saint Davids of Raleigh, N.C, who dropped to 6-5.

Head coach Blaine Lopez said the team did not come out sharp and were tied with their opponent 19-19 at the half.

Del Norte came out sharper in the second half on the way to the win.

Cody Hoffman and Saxon Schultz led the Warriors with 11 points each.

"It was nice to come out and get the win," Lopez said.

Del Norte will now play Sunland High from the Bahamas today and will play in either the championship or third place game on Saturday.

Lopez said Sunland is a big and athletic team and looked impressieve during their game.

"We've got our work cut out for us," Lopez said.

Originally, the Warriors were scheduled to play Treasure Coast High of Florida in the Mickey bracket. The brackets were changed this week to put the out-of-state teams in the same group—the Donald bracket.
