Tigers have too much bite for WRHS boys

34-point win in Hailey

The Mountain Home Tigers put nine players in the scoring column and had too much of everything—depth, athleticism and defense—during Tuesday's 63-29 nonconference boys' basketball win over the Wood River Wolverines in Hailey.

Wood River (0-3, 0-0 league) hung close with Mountain Home in the first quarter, but the Tigers erupted on a 17-1 run starting the second quarter and surged ahead 40-15 at halftime. Mountain Home's zone defense shut down the Wolverines, who were cold from the perimeter.

Junior Stone Sutton (15 points, 2 rebounds, 2 steals, 3 assists, 2 blocked shots) returned to lead Hailey. Junior Quentin Dowdle (5 points, 6 boards, 2 steals) chipped in.

Other contributors were Kevin Jensen (6 points, 2 rebounds, 2 steals), Mica Merritt (3 points, 2 boards), Luis Chavez (3 rebounds) and Adam Brown (2 boards).

Mountain Home (14 steals, 15 assists) out-rebounded Wood River 30-20. The Tiger leaders were 6-4 senior Aaron Hobbs (17 points, 5 rebounds), 6-1 senior Anthony Barboza (15 points, 4 steals), Anthony Castillo (8 points) and 6-5 senior Tyler Wright (7 points, 5 boards). Mountain Home went on to beat Jerome 53-47 Wednesday.

Wood River hosted Buhl (2-1) Thursday and goes to Idaho Falls for a matinee with Hillcrest Saturday, Dec. 11. Host Buhl beat Canyon Ridge 64-61 Tuesday and also won at American Falls 58-35, to go with an 83-58 home loss to Jerome. Hillcrest split its first two games, both at home, beating Highland of Pocatello 64-49 and losing to Idaho Falls 73-68.
