Chris Jackson and Schuyler Backlar each posted double-doubles Saturday to lead Menwith Hill to a 66-40 romp over the American Community School of Hillingdon.

Jackson scored 20 points and handed out 10 assists, and Backlar had 17 points and a game-high 11 rebounds as the Mustangs rebounded from a 36-20 loss the previous evening to the same Hawks team.

“It was a couple of good performances,” Menwith Hill coach Greg DeJardin said by telephone Saturday after his Mustangs had upped their record against varsity completion to 2-2.

Sam Erhard added 15 points for the Mustangs on Saturday.

Backlar posted a double-double in Friday’s loss — 12 points and 10 rebounds — but the team as a whole shot just 26 percent from the floor, Dejardin wrote in a Friday e-mail. Menwith Hill was 0-for-12 on three-point shots Friday.

In other boys games of note:

Patch 59, Vilseck 40: Saturday at Stuttgart, All-Europe pitcher Dylan Measells tossed in 22 points and posted six rebounds and four steals to lead the Panthers to a Region III sweep of winless Vilseck.

Patch (2-2 overall and 2-0 in Region III), which downed their visitors 53-40 on Friday, led just 22-19 at halftime before putting the game away with a 26-4 third-quarter run.

The Vilseck-at-Patch match-up was the lone regional game on a light schedule which ended the winter season’s holiday pause.

Ramstein 64, Lakenheath 35: Saturday at Ramstein, DeVonte Allen scored all 21 of his game-high points in the first half to help the defending European Division I champs take a 45-18 lead at intermission.

Jon Grotelueschen added 11 points and six rebounds for Ramstein (2-1 overall). The Royals also benefited from six assists by Nick Nixon and eight rebounds each from Anthony Sledge and James Cho, according to coach Andrew O’Connor.

Brinsley Walker led Lakenheath with 16 points.

AFNORTH 67, Bitburg 56: Saturday at Brunssum, Netherlands, scoring machine Nuri Karaca poured in 23 points in a non-regional game that saw the Lions pull away with a 25-15 fourth-quarter run.

Jamil Pollock and Jake Schmidt, who snared 13 defensive rebounds, each added 14 points for the Lions (2-3 overall) against a Bitburg team (2-1) which lost for the first time this season.

“Their overall team speed was a factor throughout the game,” AFNORTH coach Nate Goolsby wrote in a Saturday e-mail. “We were not really able to pull away from them and stay out in front because of how fast they were in transition.”

C.J. Evans paced Bitburg with 14 points; teammate Erik Matos added 11, according to Goolsby, who closed with praise for his own team.

“The team played well overall, sharing the ball and covering each other on the defensive end of the court.” he wrote about his Lions, who rebounded from tough four- and eight-point pre-holiday losses to D-I International School of Brussels.

Hohenfels 67, Mannheim 55: Saturday at Hohenfels, All-European Jaime Tompkins broke loose for a game-high 28 points and handed out eight assists as the Tigers completed a sweep of the Bison.

Tompkins also took game-scoring honors Friday with 18 points in the Tigers’ 49-43 victory.

Hohenfels will take a 2-0 overall record into this weekend’s Region III test at unbeaten Heidelberg, the 2010 European Division I runner-up. Mannheim fell to 0-4 overall.
