Rio Grande Valley Vipers Down Bakersfield Jam In Preseason Action

Vipers 109, Jam 100

Bakersfield, Calif., Nov. 20 — The Rio Grande Valley Vipers defeated the Bakersfield Jam, 109-100 in a pre-season game in front of 3,136 fans on Tuesday evening. Despite being outrebounded 47-31, the Vipers took advantage of 28 Bakersfield turnovers en route to the win.

The Vipers started fast, jumping out to a 29-26 lead after the first quarter and took a 54-48 lead into the break. The contest saw Rio Grande Valley hold the lead in a close game most of the way before pulling away at the end for the nine-point win.

Point guard CJ Watson posted a team-high 25 points and added 11 assists to lead the Vipers. Gabe Muoneke added 20 points and Steve Novak chipped in 18. The Jam were led by center Roderick Riley’s 17 points and 12 boards and Brandon Bowman’s 23 points and nine rebounds. Kosta Perovic’, on assignment to the Jam from the Golden State Warriors, posted 10 points in his Jam debut.

Despite the loss, Jam head coach Jim Harrick felt the game provided great preparation for the Jam’s upcoming regular season opener.

“We didn’t have energy tonight, but this game will definitely help us,” said Harrick. We missed a lot of layups, but that’s what the pre-season is for we have learned a lot about our team tonight.”

18 points for Novak. There's no boxscore though. :P
