PREP ROUNDUP: Lake City gets defensive, beats Bonneville girls

| December 30, 2020 1:25 AM


IDAHO FALLS — Lake City got itself moving on Tuesday, and it paid off when it mattered most.

Starting on defense, which led to some offense, it was a good combination for the Timberwolves.

Brooklyn Rewers had 17 points and 12 rebounds and four blocked shots, leading the Timberwolves past the host Bees of Idaho Falls 57-48 in the East Idaho Holiday Tournament at Bonneville High.

“We came out and keyed on the defense tonight,” Lake City assistant coach Troy Anderson said. “Bonneville’s a scrappy team, and they did some things to stay in the game. We played pretty unselfish tonight and got the ball moving. We played a lot better on offense than Monday (a 44-41 win over Hillcrest) and finished on the offensive end tonight.”

Sophia Zufelt scored 13 points and Kendall Pickford had six points and five assists for Lake City (5-2), which plays at Rigby today at 10 a.m.

Sydnee Hunt scored 17 points for Bonneville (4-8), which hosts Post Falls today at 10 a.m.

AMMON - The Trojans doubled Monday night's scoring output in their win over the Knights, with four Post Falls players reaching double figures.

"It was a good bounce back game for us," coach Marc Allert said of the Trojans, who lost 60-35 to Rigby to open the Thunder Ridge tournament.

"We played a little more relaxed and had a better effort at both ends of the floor."

Capri Sims used inside scoring and fast-break buckets to lead Post Falls with 18 points and six rebounds, while Dylan Lovett added 11 points, six assists and five rebounds. As a team, the Trojans were 21-for-27 from the free-throw line.

"Dylan also did a great job guarding their top scorer, Macy Larsen, who was averaging 20 points a game," Allert said. Larsen had 12 against the Trojans.

Trinidie Nichols and Americus Crane added 10 points each for Post Falls (4-2), which faces Bonneville at 10 a.m. today

Lake City 62

IDAHO FALLS — The Timberwolves did almost everything right to come out of their matchup with a win over the Titans of Idaho Falls in the East Idaho Holiday Tournament.

Just one shot — a 3-pointer by Lloyer Driggs with time running out — was enough for Thunder Ridge (5-1) to escape with a win.

Driggs scored a game-high 26 points as the Titans beat the Timberwolves at Skyline High, moving the Timberwolves to 1-1 in the tournament.

“We had a 7- or 8-point lead and just didn’t finish it at the free throw line in the fourth quarter,” said Lake City coach Jim Winger, whose team shot 2 of 9 from the line in the final period. “It’s tough, because we played extremely well and had some outstanding moments. They’re a good team and Driggs is legit. I thought we were ready for him and he scored 14 points in the first quarter, two in the second and was scoreless in the third, but made a really long 3-pointer to win it. It was a quality effort from us.”

Jack Kiesbuy and Varick Meredith scored 11 points each for Lake City, which Green Canyon today.

IDAHO FALLS — The Vikings were unable to get a final shot off after Grizzlies guard Cade Marlow scored with under two seconds remaining to lift Skyline past Coeur d’Alene in the East Idaho Holiday Tournament at Skyline High.

Cameren Cope scored 13 points for Coeur d’Alene (2-3), which led 31-28 at halftime.

“Cam was really effective getting to the basket in the first half,” Coeur d’Alene coach Jon Adams said. “Chandler (King) hit three 3’s in the second, but we couldn’t get anything to drop in the third quarter. We created a lot of turnovers with our press in the third, but just couldn’t get any shots to fall.”

Coeur d’Alene faces Thunder Ridge today at 12:30 p.m. to conclude the tournament.

“We’re close, and that’s what I’m trying to reassure the kids on,” said Adams, whose team was the designated home team in Skyline’s gym on Tuesday. “It just comes down to one basket, one free throw, but we’re really close to winning games on the road. We’re trying to play our best basketball at the end of the season, and we’re getting close to doing that.”

IDAHO FALLS — The trip to eastern Idaho has been what Trojan coach Mike McLean called an eye-opening experience so far.

Cade Deboard scored 24 points for Green River, which shot 23 of 42 — including 11 of 24 from the 3-point line — to edge the Trojans in the East Idaho Holiday Tournament at Skyline High.

“As good as we were in the first weekend (at Middleton Dec. 17-19), we’re equally as poor this week,” McLean said. “We’re eight quarters in and we've had sub-par intensity, and that’s on me as a coach. It’s one thing to have a bad quarter, but we’re not playing well in the things we pride ourselves on.”

Caden McLean scored 16 points, Alex Horning 14 points and Cole Rutherford and Isaac Ballew 11 points each for Post Falls (3-2), which faces Idaho Falls today.

Brady Smith scored 20 points for Green Canyon (5-3) of North Logan, Utah.
