TOUCHET - The Touchet Indians boys basketball team faltered twice over the weekend in 1B state of Washington action, losing 72-37 to Colton and 57-48 against LaCrosse-Washtucna.

The boys were missing 6-foot, 3-inch Will Huesby and point guard Vicente Flores due to different reasons and weren't able to fare well against Colton.

"But we do what we can do," Touchet coach Tim McKeown said.

The Wildcats outrebounded Touchet, 35-25.

Colton had three players in double figures. The Wildcats' Dustin Patchen poured in 23, Jake Straughan had 16 and Dalton Patchen dropped in 12.

Touchet's Eric Hines had 11 points and fouled out. The Indians' Octavio Preciado fouled out, too.

The game against L-W was much closer, with the final score being a nine-point loss for the Indians.

Hines was the leading scorer for the Indians again, this time with 18 points, before fouling out. Colter McKeown added 11 and Zach Carson had 10.

The leading scorer for L-W was Jed Zimmer with 25 points.

The Indians were just 20-of-32 from the charity stripe.

"We couldn't make free throws," McKeown said, "when we needed them."

The Indians play at Walla Walla Valley Academy at 7 p.m. Tuesday.
