KAMIAKIN 66, SUNNYSIDE 51: Isaiah Brimmer had 18 points and eight rebounds and Garrett Paxton 16 points and five assists to lead the Braves to a nonleague win Tuesday in a makeup game against the visiting Grizzlies.

Jimmy Mohlman added 12 points in a balanced attack for the Braves, who had several players on the football team that was winning a state title when the game was originally scheduled.

Sunnyside’s Trey Sanchez led all scorers with 30 points. But the Grizzlies shot just 35 percent (20-for-57) compared to 54 percent (27-for-50) for Kamiakin. Braves coach Brian Meneely credited his team’s passing, noting its 18 assists on 27 made baskets.

“It’s nice when you share the basketball like that,” Meneely said.
