Blistering hot, the top-ranked 1A Division 2 Carey School Panthers (12-1, 7-0 home, 9-0 league) chalked up their ninth consecutive win Tuesday with a 74-53 Northside Conference home success over the Dietrich Blue Devils (10-5, 6-4).

Coach Dick Simpson's Panthers put four players in double figures for the second time and also drilled eight 3-pointers. For the season Carey is shooting 33% from the circle with 74 3-pointers, nearly six per game.

Senior Brett Adamson (17.9 ppg) was Carey's top scorer with 20 points including four 3-pointers and 3 steals. He is shooting 45% from the field and 42% from the circle. Adamson has 596 points in his two full varsity years and has scored in double figures in 34 of 40 games in which Carey has a 33-7 mark.

Two Carey players with season-best scoring totals were senior Wacey Barg (6.8 ppg, 15 points, 11 rebounds) and junior Blair Peck (9.0 ppg, 12 points). Steady senior Trevor Peck (12.1 ppg) did his usual all-around thing with 13 points, 8 rebounds, 3 assists and 3 steals.

Meanwhile, senior Dillon Simpson scored 2 points, but he had 9 rebounds, 5 assists and 2 steals. A defensive star, Simpson leads the team by wide margins with 113 rebounds, 48 assists, 32 steals and 22 blocks.

Other Panther contributors were Shane Bingham 4 points and 2 steals, Joey Laidlaw 4 points and 2 boards, Caleb Cenarrusa 2 points and 2 rebounds and Brad Peck 2 points. Seniors Jay Liu (12 points) and Andrew Rocha (11) led Dietrich (31% field goal shooting).

Carey goes to Richfield today, Friday and travels to Oakley Saturday. Oakley (5-6) gave the Panthers a tussle before falling 56-52 in Carey Jan. 9.

Cutthroats win in Fairfield

The energized senior guard duo of Paul Davis and Tanner Flanigan combined for 30 points Tuesday in Fairfield to lift The Community School Cutthroats (8-4, 6-2 league) to a 57-48 Northside victory over the scrappy Camas County Mushers (7-5, 5-4 league).

Davis (10.6 ppg, 16 points) matched his season high and had his ninth double-digit scoring effort in 12 games. Flanigan (5.2 ppg) also had a season best with 14 points plus 8 rebounds as the Cutthroats scored their second-best offensive output.

Junior Daniel Gomis (19.4 ppg) added 13 points and 10 blocked shots. Will Brokaw (8 points) Dane Inman, Hunter Weaver and Colton Sholtis all had solid defensive efforts.

After the Mushers pulled within three points, Davis tallied 10 of his 16 points in the fourth quarter including a deep trey. He had three of those. Leading Camas were Andrew Simon (21 points) and Derek Walker (11 of 19 second half).

"I was pleased with our defensive effort, but even more so with how we did a much better job of maintaining our composure at the end of this game," said TCS coach Ed Flory.

Having won their first league road game, the Cutthroats traveled to Bliss (4-7, 2-5) on Thursday and will play host to Boise's North Star Charter in a 1 p.m. rematch in the Fish Tank Saturday, Jan. 30. North Star defeated TCS 43-40 Nov. 28 in Boise. The Cutthroats go to Dietrich Tuesday.

Two home games for WRHS boys

Coach John Radford's Wood River boys' basketball team has two home games coming up.

The Wolverines entertain Canyon Ridge (2-13, 0-7) today, Friday in Hailey. The Riverhawks have beaten Kimberly twice, but also fell 45-37 to Wood River Dec. 10. The Wolverines will have their make-up home games against Hillcrest of Idaho Falls Saturday, Jan. 30. Game times are freshmen at 2 p.m., JV 3:30 p.m. and varsity at 5 p.m. in Hailey.

Wood River has hit a rough patch lately, dropping seven straight by an average 26.6 ppg. Wednesday, the host Minico Spartans ran past Wood River 71-33. Juan Martinez scored 7 points, Jordan Doan 5, Stone Sutton 5, Pedro Contreras 5 and Alex Padilla 4 for Wood River.

Rounding out the Great Basin league standings are top-ranked Twin Falls (14-1, 6-0), Minico (10-5, 6-1), Jerome (9-6, 4-2) and Burley (6-9, 3-4). Wood River visits Buhl (5-8) Wednesday, Feb. 3—the Tribe having lost seven of their last eight.
