Chewelah picks up wins

December 31, 2012

The Chewelah boys’ basketball team remained undefeated in Northeast A League play with wins against Riverside and Lakeside before Christmas
Jenkins High head coach Rocky Verbeck credits strong bench play from Tommy Norman, Cordell Bean, Deylin Peone and Lars Berger for the Cougars ability to grind out wins.
“I think that is going to be our theme this year--we ground out those wins,” said Verbeck. “They don’t score often, but our bench is making the most of their minutes and that is always big for us on the defensive side of things.”

Indians play without Hubbard

It’s tough to win without your all-league meal ticket.
So it went for Colville High (4-4) in last Thursday night’s non-league boy’s basketball game with visiting Priest River.
The Indians were playing without their 6-9 junior post, Matt Hubbard. The team’s leading scorer and rebounder was in Oklahoma with his family.
Colville played well early and led by as many as nine points in the third quarter before Priest River found their collective shooting eye.

Colville girls win fourth straight

Top-ranked Post Falls up next

The Colville High girl’s basketball team (4-3) won its fourth straight game last Thursday night, holding off visiting Priest River (6-5) and posting a 38-35 win.
Colville got off fast in this one. The Indians put together one of their best opening quarters of the season to date in running to an early 18-6 lead.
CHS turned over the Spartans frequently in the early-going with their full court pressure. But PR battled back, outscoring Colville 10-6 in the second quarter before the Indians regained some momentum with an 8-4 third quarter run.
