TOUCHET — Ruben Butler scored 21 points and hauled down 10 rebounds here Saturday night as the Touchet boys basketball team ended its regular season with its third straight win — a 63-42 conquest of Tekoa-Oakesdale-Rosalia.

Butler scored 16 points on Friday night as the Indians picked up a 52-45 win at Pomeroy.

“We’re peaking at the right time,” Touchet coach Tim McKeown said. “Ruben was all over the floor (on Saturday night). He was active on the boards and is doing a lot of good things offensively. He’s been playing well lately.”

Touchet, which finished 7-9 in league and is now 10-10 overall, will commence district tournament action this upcoming week. Its first opponent, site and location were unknown at press time.
