Bryce Odegard and Danny Foss both had 23 points to lead the team in a loss to Mojave at home.
The Trojans lost 77-59 on Friday.
Trojans coach John Toomer praised his team (2-11 overall, 0-6 Sunset League) for their efforts.
“Even though we lost the game 77-59 we played with a lot of heart,” the coach said. “The team has played very hard and not given up even when the odds are against them. As soon as we get more of our shots to fall who knows what might happen.”
He said his boys are shooting 34 percent and wants them at 50 to 60 percent.
Fifth place Mojave (7-6, 2-3) led 22-36 and never looked back.
The Trojans hit the road for three games. They played Spring Valley (6-6, 1-3) on Tuesday, which was past deadline, this Saturday they are at second place Faith Lutheran (11-4, 4-0) at 6:30, and are at first place Clark (14-3, 6-0) on Monday at 6:30 p.m. Pahrump returns home to host third place Sierra Vista (6-11, 4-2) on Wednesday at 6:30 p.m.
The Trojans girls team was downed by Mojave on Friday 42-25. Mojave (6-7, 2-3) made 14 field goals but went to the line 18 times and made 9 of them. The Trojans (1-7, 0-6) went to the line only seven times but made 5 of them.
Mojave had to forfeit two league games because of a fight they had against Canyons Springs so their record does not reflect the caliber of team they are.
Lauren Ashford led Pahrump with 8 points and Andi Bishop was second with 6 points.
