Deedon finished the game with 20 points with six 3-pointers in addition to seven rebounds. Harand and Verrier finished with 12 points apiece. “Those guys could score the ball, we just have to get stops on the defensive end and find other guys to make contributions, Kelley said.” Hart plays Calabasas at 5 p.m. at Alemany on Thursday in their second game of the Warrior Classic. “I think our 1-5 record is not truly indicative of our team,” Kelley said. “We like where we are, we just have to get the wheels moving. The road doesn’t get any easier for us. We are playing a brutal schedule and we are trying to challenge our guys and they are responding.”
