Steele Canyon’s Dominick Wood-Anderson had 32 points and 16 rebounds in the Cougars' win over Valhalla on Friday night.
Rancho San Diego For Steele Canyon High, it was a tale of two quarterbacks in Friday night’s Grossmont Hills League boys basketball game.
And what a one-two punch they provided.
Dominick Wood-Anderson, a QB on the football field, proved he can handle himself on the basketball court as well. He scored a career-high 32 points on 15-of-18 shooting from the field, helping the host Cougars knock off rival Valhalla 76-62.
Wood-Anderson also had 16 rebounds for Steele Canyon (18-6, 7-1).
Junior point guard Aaron Pisiona is the floor leader for the Cougars.
“I guess you could say I’m the quarterback for the basketball team,” Pisiona said. “It’s my job to direct the offense and control the ball and tempo of the game.”
Pisiona finished with 18 points. Included in that total were four 3-pointers. He also had four assists and three steals against the Norsemen (13-11, 3-5).
One of his favorite targets was Wood-Anderson.
“Dominick is a beast in the paint,” Pisiona said.
The 6-foot-4 Wood-Anderson agreed that he feasts on passes near the basket.
“I let the game come to me,” he said.
Wood-Anderson made his first eight shots from the floor and closed the game by nailing his final seven.
“My teammates are really good at getting me the ball, and when I get it I know what to do with it,” he said.
Wins by Steele Canyon in the Cougars’ final two games next week against Grossmont and Helix will secure the Grossmont Hills League championship.
