Colville downs Newport…
Jory Dotts and the Colville Indians jumped all over their visitors Tuesday night on their way to an easy win over Newport 74-52.
Colville notched 21 points in each of the first two quarters to stake a 22 point halftime lead over the Grizzlies. Newport tried to claw their way back in the second half, but 25 points from Dotts helped keep them at bay and sent the Indians (5-10, 2-5) on to the victory.
Sam Anderson added another 11 in the game for Colville to help lead the team.
Medical Lake is next up on the Colville schedule with a game Jan. 24 at 7:15 p.m.
Selkirk rolls to win
Selkirk had a good time on their roadtrip to Inchelium, playing well on both ends of the court to get a 63-33 win over the Hornets.
The Rangers held their hosts under ten points in all but the second quarter while the offense did its part to outpace the Hornets in every quarter to establish an insurmountable lead and pull off the large win.
Ryan Zimmerman and Jay Link led the Rangers (10-5, 8-0) with 19 and 12, respectively. Justin Krabbenhoft added another 10 in the win for Selkirk.
Next up for Selkirk is a home game against Cusick Jan. 24 tipping off at 7:30 p.m.
Northport drops home game
Northport ran into a buzzsaw in their Tuesday night matchup with a good Cusick squad, losing the game 75-33.
Cusick built up a 15 point lead after the first to take control. Northport looked to regain their footing in the second, playing the Panthers to a 12-12 tie keeping things from getting out of hands before the half. However, Cusick came out on fire in the third and never looked back on the way to the win.
Jacob Corcoran led the Mustangs (1-9, 1-5) in scoring on the night with 13 points.
Northport next hosts Curlew Jan. 24 at 7:30 p.m.
Springdale gets road loss
Springdale was looking good as they rolled to a nice halftime lead, but the game turned into a tale of two halves Tuesday night against Wilbur-Creston sending the traveling Chargers home with a 56-43 loss.
The Chargers got out to the fast start with a 13-8 opening frame and pushing the lead to eight by the end of two. The halftime reset seemed to do the hosting Wildcats good as the team erased the halftime deficit to send the game into the fourth all tied up at 36. The fourth saw much of the same from Wilbur-Creston, pushing them to the win.
Springdale (5-8, 0-0) hosts St. John-Endicott Jan. 24 beginning at 5:30 p.m.
