PREP BOYS BASKETBALL: Lake City races off to 2-0 start

Print Article

SPOKANE VALLEY — Two games into this season, the Lake City Timberwolves have reached two-thirds of last season’s win total.

Varick Meredith, one of three freshmen in the rotation, scored 14 points and five T-Wolves reached double figures as Lake City romped past East Valley 75-39 on Saturday in the Border Clash at West Valley High for a 2-0 start to the season.

“We were curious to see if what they did in the summer, and how practice looked, how it would translate into games,” Lake City assistant coach Kelly Reed said. “Not a surprise, but a confirmaton that we can play a little bit. We’re excited, but we understand there’s a ton of work to be done.”

Ben Janke added 13 points for Lake City. Seth Hanson had 12 points and four assists, and Chris Irvin also had four assists as the Timberwolves totaled 21 assists to just eight turnovers.

“It was a representation of how well we moved the ball tonight,” Reed said. “We shot it well, but we took open shots because of the ball movement. And it was a super, solid team effort defensively.”

Lake City travels to Moscow on Tuesday.

“We jumped out to a good lead and just kind of hung on from there,” Kellogg coach Jeff Nearing said. “We struggled to get shots to fall in the second half, and missed our fair share of gimmes, but found a way to win. Timberlake was aggressive and defended really well. It was just kind of a grinder.”

“It was a good game for us,” Lakeside coach James Twoteeth said. “We were a lot quicker that they were. We were kind of nervous to begin with as they’re a bigger school (613 students) and we’re up 20 most of the game. We played some bigger schools during the summer and the boys are starting to get used to that mentality going into a game and playing like that.”

Mullan 60

Nezperce 44

NEZPERCE — Sophomore Luke Trogden scored 30 points to cap a 63-point weekend, Skye Gallaway added 12 points and the visiting Tigers wrapped up their season-opening road trip with a victory over the Indians on Saturday.

“This was about dribble penetration, and finishing at the basket,” Mullan coach Paul Elston said of Trogden, who scored 33 points in a 61-58 loss at Highland-Craigmont on Friday night in Craigmont.

Elston praised the defense of Floyd Nelson, a freshman, and Caden Crandall over the weekend.

“We’re trying to play some different opponents; trying to see some more teams from the Whitepine League,” Elston said.

After playing with mostly the minimum five players last year, Mullan is up to eight this year. But one of them, junior Riley Trodgen, is out for at least another two weeks. Elston said Trogden was running lines at practice recently when he crashed through the glass behind the basket, and needed some 70 stitches.

Mullan travels to Deary on Thursday.
