WALLA WALLA — Nathan Scheibe scored 22 points and Dayton Krull added 20 Friday night to lead Asotin to a 74-62 victory over DeSales in a Southeast 2B boys basketball game at the Irish gym.

The setback left the Irish 2-3 in league and 7-7 overall.

Beau Magnuson drained a pair of 3-pointers and Scheibe contributed four points in the first quarter as Asotin claimed a seven-point cushion, 17-10.

Scheibe scored six points in the second quarter while Jesse Styner and Connor Madden put in four points apiece that helped the Panthers increase their lead to 12, 35-23, by halftime.

Reilly Roach, Adam Eskil, and Cameron Richman tried to keep DeSales close. Roach had six points in the half while Eskil and Richman contributed four each.

Asotin’s double-digit advantage came about in part because of its defense. The Panthers forced 14 Irish turnovers.

Scheibe helped Asotin expand its lead with 10 third-quarter points. The Panthers ended the period with an 11-2 run and led 55-39 at the quarter buzzer.

“One of the key factors was the trapping that they did all game long,” DeSales coach Allyn Griffin said. “We hadn’t seen it before. It came down to their defense and we missed too many easy shots.”

Asotin managed to stay in control of the contest by hitting 10-of-16 free throws in the fourth quarter.

Richman led DeSales with 18 points and Travis Haen scored 17 — 11 of which came in the fourth quarter on a trio of treys and one two-point bucket.

“I was pleased with our effort,” Griffin said. “The guys worked tremendously hard and that’s what we need to have. We didn’t quit. We didn’t give up.”
