U-Prep too much for DeSales, W-M boys at classic

WALLA WALLA — The annual D.A. Davidson Christmas Classic that ended Saturday night in the DeSales gym produced a mixed bag of results for both the Irish and Weston-McEwen boys basketball teams.

Both teams beat The Bush School and were defeated by University Prep.

The Pumas pounded the Irish, 54-23, on Saturday while the TigerScots fought off a sluggish start to run away from the Blazers, 59-34.

DeSales bopped the Blazers, 56-43, on Friday and the TigerScots were 61-45 losers to University Prep.

The Irish led 18-15 at halftime, but were steamrolled by a 23-2 Puma blitz in the third quarter.

DeSales scored five points in the second half and was guilty of 26 turnovers in the game.

“They’re a good team,” Irish coach Allyn Griffin said. “They didn’t make very many adjustments. They were able to execute in the second half.

“We played a good game outside the third quarter,” Griffin said. “Turnovers are something we need to work on. We had too many turnovers. We need to reduce them.”

Cam Richman and Adam Eskil led DeSales with seven points apiece. Eskil claimed a team-high eight rebounds.

Chuck Simmons led the TigerScots with 15 points and was one of three Weston-McEwen players to reach the double-figure plateau.

The TigerScots led just 15-11 after one quarter and 27-21 at halftime before separating themselves from the Blazers.

“We’re a better team when we have three or four guys in double figures,” W-M coach Brian Pickard said. “In the first half, we had a hard time keeping them out of the paint. In the second half, we switched to a 2-3 zone and forced them into long shots. We were able to get long rebounds and get transition baskets.”

Darryl Galloway scored 17 points and Dominic Kjeldgaard ripped off 10 rebounds as the Irish opened the Classic with a double-digit win over the Blazers.

DeSales used a 19-8 surge in the third quarter to turn a six-point halftime lead into a 43-26 advantage heading into the fourth quarter.

“I like the way we shot the ball (16-of-35, 46 percent), but we need to execute our half-court offense a little better,” Griffin said. “We were solid defensively. I was pleased with our defensive effort.”

A poor beginning resulted in a TigerScot loss to the Pumas.

University led 17-6 after eight minutes and expanded the margin to 18, 32-14, by intermission.

Simmons was the lone TigerScot in double figures with 21 points.

“We had some good shots early but didn’t get them to fall,” Pickard said. “We’re not used to playing against that much height (e.g., a roster that includes one player that is 6-foot-5 and three others that are 6-4). We did a lot of good things in the second half.”
