Carey High School boys' basketball players laced up their track shoes Tuesday night. And they raced to a season-opening 75-33 Northside Conference win over the Magic Valley Christian Conquerors.

The Panthers put all 13 of their varsity players in the scoring column and shot 47% from the field for the game. After one quarter the score was 24-8 and at halftime it was 45-18.

Carey coach Dick Simpson said, "Everybody played and everybody played well. The key for us was really good defense. Plus, we passed the ball around and found the open man."

Topping the game statistics for Carey (1-0) were Brett Adamson (14 points, 2 assists, two 3-pointers), Wacey Barg (9 points, 5 rebounds), Blair Peck (8 points, 2 steals) and Trevor Peck (6 points, 3 boards, 3 assists, 4 steals, two 3-pointers).

Other Panther scorers were Shane Bingham 6, Caleb Cenarrusa 5, Dillon Simpson 4, Brandon Dilworth 4, Jacy Baird 4, Tyler Chavez 4, Tyler Willis 4, Joey Laidlaw 4 and Brad Peck 3. Leading Magic Valley Christian (0-2) was Zach Van Esch with 18 points.

Carey shot 7-for-10 at the free throw line and made only six turnovers, compared to 19 for the Conquerors. Tonight, Friday, Carey hosts Hagerman (0-1), which lost at home to Oakley 58-48 Wednesday. The Conquerors visit The Community School (0-1) Dec. 10.
