TOUCHET — After going into halftime tied at 27, the Touchet boys basketball team rolled in the second half to beat Lacrosse-Washtucna 54-40 on Saturday.

Touchet opened the second half with a zone defense, which stifled the Tigercats offense, head coach Tim McKeown said. Lacrosse-Washtucna finished with only 13 points in the second half.

“I think it caught them off guard a little bit,” McKeown said. “They didn’t know how to handle the zone I threw at them.”

The Indians rebounded from a 27-23 loss to Pomeroy on Friday.

Touchet’s Carlos Rincon finished with a team-high 14 points and scored nine of the Indians’ 13 fourth quarter points. Zach Carson added 10 points in the win.
