Braves Hand Richland First League Loss

Garrett Paxton scored a season-high 26 points to go along with 10 rebounds, and the Kamiakin boys basketball team picked up its eighth consecutive victory Saturday with a 74-71 overtime win over Richland in MCC play.

Richland (8-4, 6-1) had won its past 34 games against conference foes, dating to the 2014-15 campaign. Its previous three losses this season had come against Greater Spokane League powers Gonzaga Prep, Ferris and Central Valley.

In a back-and-forth contest from the tipoff, nine total players scored in double digits. Behind Paxton — who went 6 of 9 from 3-point range — Kamiakin’s Champ Grayson scored 13 points, Payton Flynn 11, and Isaiah Brimmer and Koby Bailey each had 10. Tyler Kurtz led Richland with 19 points, Cole Northrop scored 17, and Riley Sorn and Ryan Wagar each had 12.

Richland beat Kamiakin on the boards (41-32) and shot a better percentage from the field (45-40.9), but it was the Braves’ ability to take care of the ball, turning it over just nine times while taking it away 17, that allowed them to hang around.

Because Kamiakin (11-2, 6-1) lost to Walla Walla in December, the Feb. 3 rematch between the Bombers and Braves will determine a league champ if the teams win out the rest of the way.

KAMIAKIN: Green, Koby Bailey 10, Garrett Paxton 26, Wolf 2, Payton Flynn 11, Champ Grayson 13, Isaiah Brimmer 10, Nichols, Pischel 2, Mohlman. Totals: 27-66, 11-14 74.

RICHLAND: Ryan Wagar 12, Sanderson 5, Christensen, Tyler Kurtz 19, Cole Northrop 17, Streufert 6, Volmer, Riley Sorn 12, Kump, Mitchell, Kriskovich. Totals: 27-60 9-10 71.

Braves Win In Sundome, 47-46 Over Lynden

KAMIAKIN 47, LYNDEN 46: Koby Bailey hit the game-winning 3-pointer with 10 seconds remaining to rally the Braves past the Lions at the SunDome Shootout in Yakima.

“We were ahead at halftime (28-20), but we were down four with a minute and a half left,” Kamiakin coach Brian Meneely said. “Our seniors made some big plays for us and Garrett Paxton took two big charges for us.”

The Lions went on a 17-8 run in the third quarter to take a 37-36 lead, and held a slim lead until the final minute.

Isaiah Brimmer made a big basket to pull Kamiakin (5-2) within a point, then Bailey hit the bucket of the night for the win.

“We are getting our legs back,” Meneely said. “We are plugging away. It’s a long year and we want to be playing well at the right time.”

Brimmer led Kamiakin with 13 points, while Champ Grayson added 11 points, four assists and two steals.

Clayton Whitman led Lyden with 17 points.

The Braves are back in action Friday against Black Hills at 4:30 p.m.

Braves Defeat Lions 49-43


Still lagging behind a bit in the early season because of the football team’s state championship run, the Kamiakin High School boys basketball team had to fight for a 49-43 home win over Kennewick on Saturday night in Mid-Columbia Conference play.

In a game during which Kamiakin (3-0, 2-0) turned the ball over 20 times and Kennewick (1-3, 0-1) shot 26 percent from the field, the Braves again needed some stellar play on the boards (won rebounds 43-31) and on defense to pull out the win. They beat Southridge 50-34 in similar fashion Friday in their MCC opener.

“We haven’t practiced much, but we’ve really defended and rebounded well the last two games,” Kamiakin coach Brian Meneely said. “We knew we were going to be rusty this weekend, so to see those things come together was really nice.”

Garrett Paxton scored 13 points for Kamiakin and dished out five assists. Isaiah Brimmer chipped in 11 points and had a game-high eight boards.

Leo Olmos scored a game-high 18 points for Kennewick and was 6 of 8 from the free-throw line.

Kennewick had just 23 points heading into the fourth quarter before hitting its offensive stride.

KENNEWICK: Leo Olmos 18, Nieves 2, Jenner Norwood 6, Pearson 2, Thornton 2, Chavez, Bambock 2, Sanders 3, Zamora 5, Mendoza 3, Schwartz. Totals: 15-57 11-14 43.

KAMIAKIN: Bailey 9, Garrett Paxton 13, Wolf 2, Grayson 3, Brimmer 11, Green, Flynn 9, Nichols, Pischel 1, Mohlman 1. Totals: 19-41 7-19 49.













Highlights — Ke, Tyler Pearson 7 rebs; Leo Olmos 6-8 FTs. Ka, Isaiah Brimmer 8 rebs; Garrett Paxton 5 assts.
