By Darren Feeney
The San Diego Surf continued their winning ways Wednesday night with a 90-85 victory over the Compton Cobras.
Playing without their leading scorer, former University of Missouri swingman Glen Dandridge, guards Tim Denson and Mo Clady stole the show and paced the Surf.
Denson scored a game-high 29 points, to go along with nine rebounds and 5 assists. Clady put together 25 points and also dished out nine assists.
The Surf trailed the Cobras 36-41 at halftime, but outscored Compton by nine in the third quarter to take the 63-59 heading into the final quarter and never looked back.
"The team has been working real hard in practice and it showed against the Cobras," said San Diego head coach Terry Mason. "I'm really proud of these guys as a team, and we're just going to keep working hard every day to get better."
The Surf led by as many as 10 points in the fourth quarter, as the Cobras continued to foul in the final minutes in an effort to extend the game and stop the clock.
Only seven players suited up for the Surf with no one larger than 6-foot-7. San Diego had their hands full with two seven-footers for the Cobras.
Cornell Williams also added 14 points and 10 rebounds.
