PREP BASKETBALL: Coeur d'Alene boys win easily in Adams' debut as coach at alma mater

• BOYS

COEUR d’ALENE — New Coeur d’Alene High boys basketball coach Jon Adams wants his team to play with some tempo this season.

His squad didn’t wait long into the season opener to get that started.

Junior Chandler King scored 11 of his game-high 14 points in the first quarter as the Vikings beat the Bonners Ferry Badgers 62-29 at Viking Court on Tuesday.

“We’re going to try to play a different style this year and dictate the tempo,” said Adams, a 1991 Coeur d’Alene High graduate who took over the program this year. “I told them to buy into this, and putting up 62 points is a good thing for us. It was good to have a home game under our belts and have the kids buy in.”

Cameren Cope had 13 points and nine rebounds, Owen Smith nine rebounds and Brayden Bengtson seven points, five assists and four steals for Coeur d’Alene, which plays at Lakeland on Thursday.

Braden Blackmore scored 11 points for Bonners Ferry (1-2).

POST FALLS — Junior Skilar McLean scored 12 points and all 11 players scored for the Trojans, who eased past the Bengals in Inland Empire League play at The Arena.

Dylan Lovett added eight points for Post Falls (3-1, 3-1 IEL).

“She got some steals and some buckets in transition; that got us going early,” Post Falls coach Marc Allert said.

Maya Blake had nine points, Capri Sims eight in a balanced attack for the Trojans.

“With everybody scoring, that’s how I thought we’d be,” Allert said. “Everybody came in and did their role; we were balanced.”

Taryn Barney scored a game-high 13 points for Lewiston (1-3, 1-3), who played without standout post Katy Wessels, out for an undetermined amount of time with a leg injury.

Allert had praise for the way the shorthanded Bengals played under first-year coach Karlee Wilson, a former Lewiston High star.

“Karlee’s doing a great job; they’re going to continue to get better,” Allert said.

Post Falls is scheduled to travel to Timberlake on Thursday.

Lakeland 60

Bonners Ferry 49

RATHDRUM — Micki DesMarais helped the Lakeland Hawks win back-to-back state titles in 2001 and ’02.

Nearly two decades later, as a volunteer assistant at her alma mater, she contributed a key assist.

At halftime, the now-Micki Darnell suggested putting junior Addie Kiefer on Bonners Ferry senior star Holly Ansley, who had scored 15 first-half points.

Kiefer held Ansley to five points in the second half, and the Hawks pulled away in the fourth quarter to beat the Badgers in nonleague play at Hawk Court.

Kiefer finished with 21 points, 17 rebounds and four assists for Lakeland (3-2).

“Twenty-one points and 17 rebounds is a terrific storyline, but the biggest difference she made was defensively,” Lakeland coach Steve Seymour said. “Holly’s a good player, has been for four years. She facilitates, and is tough to stop off the dribble, shoots the 3 well. She shot us out of our zone (in the first half), basically.”

Katy Ryan added 14 points, 10 rebounds, five blocked shots and four steals for Lakeland. Abbey Neff “had her best game of the year,” Seymour said, finishing with 13 points and four assists.

Lakeland plays at Coeur d’Alene on Friday.
