The Santa Cruz Warriors triumphed over the Mexico City Capitanes, 117-100, on Monday evening at Mexico City Arena.

Guard Kendric Davis led both teams with 24 points and 12 assists, while fellow teammate Donovan Williams followed with 21 points by shooting an efficient 7-of-10 from the field.

Forward Javan Johnson contributed 18 points and forward Jackson Rowe rounded out the scoring with 16 points, seven rebounds and four steals.

Forward Ethan Thompson closed out the night with 15 points and five assists for Mexico City, and forward Louis King collected 15 points and four rebounds off the bench. Forward Juan Toscano-Anderson secured 15 points to go along with eight rebounds and six assists, and guard Luke Martinez added 16 points in the loss.

The Warriors opened the contest on a 10-0 run and despite the Capitanes closing the gap to just four points in the first quarter, Santa Cruz closed out the opening frame with a 31-23 advantage.

The game remained competitive early in the second quarter until the Warriors drained three straight 3-pointers to extend their lead at 50-35 with less than five minutes remaining in the first half. Santa Cruz maintained the advantage with a 64-52 lead going into the break.

Santa Cruz went on another 10-0 run in the third quarter, including a steal and dunk from Rowe. An alley-oop dunk from Santa Cruz guard Jimmy Whitt helped the Sea Dubs take their largest lead of the game at 88-62.

Mexico City battled throughout the remainder of the quarter to close the deficit, 97-78, heading into the final frame. But, the Capitanes (12-11) were unable to find offensive footing and the Sea Dubs came away with the victory.

Santa Cruz (13-11) plays at Austin Spurs on Wednesday at 5pm to end a five-game road trip, followed by a trip back to the Bay Area on Sunday as the Warriors host the Rio Grande Valley Vipers at the Chase Center—home of the Golden State Warriors—on Sunday at 12:30pm.
