UNION, Ore. - Coming off an impressive 67-29 dismantling of Pilot Rock at home Friday, Weston-McEwen used a 26-point third period here Saturday to pull out a 71-54 Blue Mountain Conference boys basketball victory over Union.

"The third period was the turning point," W-M coach Brian Pickard said. "We had a seven- or eight-point lead, and went to our full court press and trapped them. The lead went to 18 in about two minutes."

Ron Terjeson led a trio of TigerScots in double digits with a game-high 23 points. Dallas Reich hit for 21 and Riley Sederburg finished with 12.

On Friday, it was the Reich show. Reich converted five 3s, as the TigerScots hit 10 from beyond the arc, and finished with a game-high 27 points.

Terjeson added 16, Jacob Ramires buried three triples to finish with nine, and Sederburg added nine. Elliot Salter passed out seven assists.

"We came out and hit our outside shots early," Pickard said. "Our defense was outstanding the whole game. We're playing pretty good basketball right now."

The TigerScots, 11-1 in conference, close out the regular season at home Friday against Stanfield and on the road Saturday at Irrigon looking to get first place and a first-round bye at the district tournament.
