When the basketball season started for the Holtville High boys team, the transition from football to basketball for 18-year-old senior Jon Singh was a difficult one.
He struggled early in the season But after extra hours of practice on his own, before and after school, just working on his shot, things started coming around.
Taking about 100 shots during those extra hours of practice, Singh started to get into mid-season form last week as he averaged 24 points in three Holtville victories.
On Jan. 8 he dropped 27 points on Palo Verde in the Vikings' 77-54 thrashing. In a rivalry game Friday, the Holtville shooting guard scored 24 points as the Vikings edged Imperial 50-49. He wrapped up his week Saturday by scoring 21 points in the team's 52-48 win over Antelope of Wellton, Ariz.
