WINSTON — Miguel Valadez scored 11 of his 19 points in the second half and visiting Phoenix handed Douglas a 57-51 loss on Monday night in a nonleague boys basketball game.

Sophomore Dylan Harper added 13 points for the Class 4A Pirates (5-8), who avenged a 65-61 defeat to the 3A Trojans in the Pirate Shootout on Dec. 3. Phoenix led by as many as 16 points in the first half and was up 38-27 at intermission.

Sophomore Jace Page posted a double-double for Douglas (5-3), finishing with 17 points and 10 rebounds. Page converted 9 of 10 free throws. Kahiki Nielsen contributed 15 points and freshman Alex Metianu added seven in the loss.

"They platoon every couple minutes and overwhelmed us with their physicality," Douglas coach Bid Van Loon said. "We made a run late in the game (to get within three), but it was too late."

Douglas is scheduled to host St. Mary's Friday in its Far West League opener.
