NAPAVINE — The Tigers had the hot hand here Saturday as they fended off a second half surge from Raymond to claim a 70-53 victory in their non-league boys basketball romp.

Napavine held a sizeable halftime lead after scoring 21 points in the first quarter and 15 in the second and holding the Seagulls in single digits both quarters.

Quality looks in the paint helped the Tigers compile a 53 percent shooting percentage in the game on 60 shots. Dawson Stanley scored a game-high 23 points for the Tigers.

“We had a size advantage and we were pretty much pounding the ball inside and we were converting,” said Napavine coach Rex Stanley.

Raymond’s offense found its rhythm in the second half but the Tigers’ offensive attack proved too much to overcome for the visitors.

“The first half couldn’t have gone any better for us but then they came out in the second half and were really shooting the lights out and turned it into a shootout,” said Stanley.

Cade Evander and Keith Olson both notched double-doubles for Napavine and the Tigers bested the Seagulls 40-32 in the team rebounding battle. Evander finished with 21 points and 10 rebounds while Olson scored 17 points and grabbed a game-high 14 rebounds.

“Getting those three into double figures is big for us. If we can have them get 23, 21 and 17 that makes it hard for people to handle,” said Stanley.

Tre Seydel led Raymond with 17 points and Cesar Delgado grabbed a team-high 11 rebounds.

With the gauntlet of the Central 2B League schedule in front of his team Stanley said he’s pleased with progress his team made during the 2018 portion of the schedule.

“We’re coming along pretty good. With the late start from football we just had to hit the ground running,” Stanley noted. “It’s coming together and being able to use our size against people. We’re feeling pretty good about where we’re at.”

Napavine (5-4, 1-0 league) will host Rainier on Thursday.

Coyotes Feast on Toledo

ELLENSBURG — Toledo had no answer for Brock Ravet here on Saturday as Kittitas won 83-56 in a non-league boys basketball game at Central Washington University.

Fano Arceo-Hansen recorded a double-double for the Indians with 11 points and 13 rebounds. Bryce Marcil scored nine points and Andreas Malunat and Duke Schaplow each added eight points.

Ravet scored 29 points to lead all scorers. Martin Arreola chipped in 18 points and Caleb Harris tallied 12 points.

Toledo coach Grady Fallon said a number of people guarded Ravet but no one had much success stopping the reigning state player of the year.

“He’s so good. People are talking about his points but he is a very good passer,” Fallon said. “They don’t take a lot of bad shots and he makes them better.”

The Coyotes led just 21-16 after one quarter, but Kittitas made some adjustments and opened up the lead in the second quarter to lead 48-26 at halftime. It was all Coyotes in the second half to cruise to the win.

“It was a good tourney to go to and play some good teams. If you think you’ve got a shot at a trophy, that’s a good measuring stick,” Fallon said. “We get a good non-league game and do some team bonding. You’ve got nothing to lose when you play Kittitas. You give it what you’ve got and see where you’re at.”

Beavers Nip T-Wolves

ELLENBURG — Morton-White Pass went toe-to-toe with Woodland here on Saturday, but the Beavers ended up prevailing 50-48 in a non-league boys basketball game at Central Washington University.

Kaleb Rashoff led MWP with 15 points. Dylan Richards added 14 points and Hayden Young tallied 11 points.

Alex Bishop led all scorers with 21 points and Tyler Flanagan chipped in 11 points for the Beavers.

The game was relatively even when looking at the stats. Each team fired 52 shots, but Woodland made 23 while MWP made 21 field goals. MWP did have the advantage on the glass, 33-29.

MWP held a 13-12 lead after one quarter but Woodland answered in the second quarter, holding MWP to eight points to gain a 22-21 lead at intermission.

Each team scored 14 points in the third quarter to help Woodland maintain the lead, and the Beavers were able to hang on down the stretch to earn the win.

“I thought we battled hard. It seemed like every basket was a lead change. It was a very physical game, and they really let us play,” MWP coach Chad Cramer said. “We matched their physicality. We just ended up a play or two short, We’re about four points from being 9-1, but we’re sitting at 7-3 and getting ready for a stretch run in league.”

MWP (7-3, 1-1) is on the road in Adna on Thursday in a Central 2B League game.

Friday’s Scores

Wood’s Free Throws Lift Toledo Past Woodland

ELLENSBURG — Toledo’s Brian Wood hit two free throws with three seconds to go to help the Indians hang on for a 49-47 win over Woodland in a non-league boys basketball game at Central Washington University here on Friday.

Toledo’s Andreas Malunat scored 13 points and Bryce Marcil scored 12 points. Westin Wallace had eight points and eight rebounds.

Alex Bishop tallied 26 points to lead all scorers for the Beavers.

The key to the game was free throws, as the Indians converted 14 of 17 attempts, including the two free throws to win the game, while Woodland shot just 8 of 14 from the charity stripe.

Toledo gained a 14-9 lead after one quarter. The second quarter was close with the Indians leading 30-24 at halftime.

The Indians were never able to pull away, only leading 37-30 going into the final quarter, but Toledo was able to stay the course in the fourth quarter and earn the victory.

“That’s why we go over there, to play some good teams,” Toledo coach Grady Fallon said. “Woodland should be solid in their league with a guy like Bishop. He made some tough shots.”
