IONE Enterprises fast break came to life just in time Saturday.

Through three quarters, Enterprises girls basketball team held a 35-27 lead over Ione, but a strong run in the fourth quarter carried Enterprise to a 57-39 win.

The victory gave Enterprise (2-0) the Ione Tournament title.

The fast break started working at the end of the third quarter and into the fourth, Enterprise coach Mike Crawford said.

The result was plenty of trips to the free throw line, where Enterprise made 18-of-24 compared to Iones 4-of-7.

Kazzie Dawson had another strong performance for the second straight night, scoring a game-high 14 points. Ashley Anderson chipped in 13 and Lacey Nobles had 11, including three 3-pointers.

Lapwai beats Union

UNION An early offensive barrage buried the Union girls basketball team in the championship game of its home tournament Saturday.

Visiting Lapwai, Idaho, behind 16 first-quarter points from Althea Walker, gave the Wildcats a 28-3 lead and a 71-22 victory at the Union Lions Club Tournament.

They were a buzz saw, Union coach Wayne Herron said. We had a tough time handling their pressure. You take that and couple it with their shooting. We dug ourselves a big hole.

Walker had four 3-pointers in the opening period and led the Wildcats with a game-high 18 points.

The fourth quarter was all Lapwai, which had 21 points behind another hot hand Ada McCormack who scored all 12 of her points in the final period on four 3-point shots.

Sarah Bomberger paced Union (1-1) with 13 points.

Wallowa defense holds

JOHN DAY With the offense not clicking, Wallowa turned to its defense and received stellar results with a 34-16 win Friday.

The Cougars kept the hosting Grant Union JV team from scoring in the first and third periods and didnt allow a field goal until two-and-a-half minutes remained in the game.

Our defense was good. Our offense was pretty poor, but we scored enough points to win, Wallowa coach Greg Oveson said.

The Cougar defense allowed only two Grant Union field goals the entire contest.

Larae Guillory led the Cougars with 12 points and Amanda Lewis added nine.

Weston boys prevail

IONE Grady Rawls scored a season-high 24 points, but a slow start doomed Enterprise Saturday against Weston-McEwen.

The TigerScot boys basketball team jumped to a 22-12 first-quarter lead and never looked back en route to an 81-64 win in the Ione Tournament consolation championship game.

They came out and hit four 3-pointers right off the bat in the first quarter and played a good first half, Enterprise coach Duff Pace said. We were able to cut into their lead in the second half.

Enterprise (0-2) played even with Weston-McEwen after the opening quarter, which pleased Pace. Overall, we definitely played better than (Friday) night, but we still had too many turnovers.

Rawls was one of two Enterprise players to have double-doubles on the night. Rawls had 11 rebounds and Tim Gilbert scored 12 points and grabbed 14 rebounds.

Lapwai breaks 100

UNION Union kept pace with a tough Lapwai, Idaho, boys basketball team as long as it could Saturday but didnt have the firepower to counter the visiting Wildcats high-octane offense.

A night after Lapwai beat Cove by 60 points, Union (1-1) trailed only 41-31 at the half and was within 15 midway through the third before the Wildcats ran away for a 101-57 win and the Union Lions Club Tournament championship.

Things went well for two-and-a-half quarters, but then their depth got to us, Union coach Alex Steenstra said. Theyre the No. 1 team from Idaho and probably the best team well see all year. They put defensive pressure on us and we handled it well.

Lapwai had four scorers in double figures, led by Julian Bronsons 21 points and Andrae Domebos 20.

Unions Jeremy Shankel led all scorers with 22 points. Lucas Maples added 12.

Wallowa downs GU JVs

JOHN DAY Wallowas boys basketball team survived a close call on the road Friday in its season-opener. The Cougars held off a pesky Grant Union JV team for a 44-42 road win.

Casey Smergut scored 12 points and had 16 rebounds for Wallowa (1-0). Shane Byers shared scoring honors with 12 points, and Randy Spaur added 10.

We have only eight guys (for the varsity), so it will be a weird year, Wallowa coach Gerry McLain said. I liked our quickness. Well be the team people hate to play, but well be competitive.
