Boys prep basketball roundup


Northside Conference opponents have to be on the lookout for Carey and The Community School, both of whom are racking up wins as adroitly as Minnesota Fats once did at a pool table. The Panthers remain atop the IdahoSports.com power rankings as the top 1A Division II team in the state, and with three consecutive wins the Cutthroats are taking aim on opponents that once had no problem beating them.

Community School

The Cutthroats (7-3) collected their third straight victory beating Twin Falls Christian at the Fish Tank Friday, 59-45. The team's leading scorer, Daniel Gomis, recorded 23 points, and Paul Davis chipped in 14 to pace Sun Valley, who posted double digits in all four quarters.

It was the second homecourt win in as many nights, as The Community School edged Dietrich 51-49 Thursday. With 11 seconds remaining, the Blue Devils had two chances to tie the game, but could not get their shots to fall. Gomis was the big man once again, scoring 21 points and pulling down 25 rebounds.

The Cutthroats are on the road for their next four games, including Magic Valley Christian Friday at Jerome, and Camas County Tuesday.

Carey

The Panthers unbeaten streak in Northside Conference play remained intact after a 58-43 victory over Murtaugh Thursday. Carey collected their seventh conference win and elevated their record to 9-1 overall, helped, in part, by a 17-point first frame, as the Panther's scoring buffer was only eight points for the remainder of the game. Brett Adamson put down a game-high 17 points. Blair Peck connected on four treys in a 14-point night. Next up for the Panthers is a road game at Bliss on Thursday, followed by a home matchup versus Dietrich on Tuesday.

Wood River

The Wolverines (2-8 overall, 1-4 league) fell to Filer 55-42 on the road Friday. Tied 7-7 after the first quarter, the hometown Wildcats popped for 22 points in the second stanza to lead 29-17 at intermission. The second half was more evenly matched, with Filer posting 26 points to the Wolverines' 25. Hailey's top scorers were Kevin Abbott with 12 points and Stone Sutton with 10. Wood River is home to league-rival Burley tonight, Wednesday, Jan. 20.
