WALLOWA BOYS WIN ON HOME COURT

By The Observer

WALLOWA Playing in front of the home crowd and with a full bench was something new for Wallowas boys basketball team Friday night.

The result was a 53-37 win over the visiting Echo Cougars at the Wallowa Lions Club Tournament.

It was our first game at home and it kind of showed, Wallowa coach Gerry McLain said. I think we were nervous with family in the stands.

But Wallowa (3-3) had an added bonus, playing with nine players on varsity for the first time this season.

Wallowa grabbed a 24-15 halftime lead and scored 21 points in the final quarter.

Casey Smergut scored a game-high 18 points for Wallowa. Randy Spaur chipped in 15 and Shane Byers had 10.

Jess Belyea had 13 points to lead Echo, which plays Cove for the consolation title today.

Wallowa will face Jordan Valley for the tournament championship.

JOSEPH DROPS CLOSE ONE

SALEM Joseph couldnt hold on to a 15-point halftime lead and fell short 55-53 to St. Marys of Medford Friday.

The Eagles had trouble with St. Marys second-half switch to a zone defense at the Salem Holiday Invitational.

Our outside game wasnt there tonight, Joseph coach Ron Lathrop said. We came out flat in the thrid quarter.

Joseph (5-1) failed to hit one 3-pointer in the contest. The Eagles held a 30-15 halftime lead before St. Marys rallied in the second half.

Marcus Wells led Joseph for the second day at the tournament with a game-high 32 points. He was the only Joseph player to score in double digits.

Michael Fielder paced St. Marys with 22 points.

Joseph plays either Portland Christian or Santiam Christian in the morning bracket today.

Our defense really stepped it up. Thats been the one thing thats been consistent for us, has been our defense, Elgin coach Kyle Evans said.

Elgin didnt shoot particularly well 37 percent from the field but made up for it by getting plenty of attempts off Helix turnovers.
