Dezymn Trent is starting to notice that with bigger stages comes extraordinary responsibility.

And he is responding with almost superhuman performances.

Receiving his first official NCAA Division I basketball scholarship from Seattle University last week, the 6-foot-5 guard tallied a career-high 41 points, and sixth-ranked Foss walloped senior-loaded Columbia River, 60-29, in King Showcase action at the ShoWare Center in Kent.

Trent made 17 of his 29 field goal attempts – most in transition as the Falcons’ fullcourt pressure constantly rattled the Chieftains’ guards. He added 16 rebounds before leaving with just more than two minutes remaining.

And the recruiting audience is picking up, too – assistant coaches from Portland State, Santa Clara and Idaho were in attendance courtside.

“I feel like my hard work is paying off,” Trent said.

Five consecutive Columbia River turnovers to start the second quarter led to an 8-0 Foss run – and 17-3 lead with 6:17 to go.
