Jordan needed a better second half and the Falcons found their outside shooting touch to go on to a 93-80 PAC-6 4-A win over visiting Hillside Friday night.

Josh Thompson scored a career-high 31 points, including two of Jordan’s six third-quarter 3-pointers, as the Falcons rallied.

“We let the offense come to us,” Thompson said. “We took better shots and caught fire in the second half. We were sloppy in the first half. It was tough not practicing but they were in the same situation, too.”

The Falcons (13-5, 4-1) finished with seven 3s in the game and remained atop the PAC-6.

In the girls’ game, Zuri White scored 14, Justine Lyon added 13 and Kelbi Lewis finished with 10 to lead Hillside to a 68-46 victory.

The Hornets (13-5, 4-1 PAC-6) blew the game open early in the second quarter by building a one-point lead into a 33-23 halftime advantage.

Jordan, despite 17 points and nine rebounds by Salita Greene, was unable to chip away at the lead and fell to 9-8 and 3-2 in the PAC-6.
