The Dundee Boys' Basketball team won both of their games against Red Jacket and Bloomfield last week.

The Scots traveled to Red Jacket on December 13th, winning 79-75. Senior Brandon Camacho led Dundee with 34 points, five steals, and five assists. Sophomore Justin Brace added seven points and eight rebounds, while Greg Ellison scored 11 points with nine rebounds. Max Gorton and Steven Carruthers both scored eight points for the Scots, with Gorton adding four assists and Carruthers snagging 13 rebounds.

"They are our biggest rival," said Dundee coach Les Miller. "Each game is close and comes down to the end every time. They hold the regular season advantage on us but we have ended their season in sectionals the last four years in a row. Games at Red Jacket are fantastic. It's a very tough place to play and the open basket with the student section behind it is always tough for our shooters."

Dundee led the game by 13 at halftime but the Indians came as close as two points down with about a minute left in the fourth quarter. Camacho iced the game going six for six on free throws in the final minutes.

The Scots followed up their big road victory against the Indians with a 67-56 win over the Bloomfield Bombers. Camacho again paced Dundee in scoring with 33 points, including 14 of 15 free throw shooting. Brace and Carruthers had nine and eight points, while Gorton and the hero of the win over the Honeoye Bulldogs, junior Aksel Jensen, had seven points apiece for Dundee. Bloomfield was led in scoring by Jarrett Riker and Patrick Erdle, who had 18 and 15 points respectively.

Miller said, "My kids are playing well but we still have little things to take care of."

They certainly are playing well. Dundee's record improves to 5-1 on the year.
