     Displaying depth in spades with 11 players contributing, the CareyHigh School boys’ basketball team kept its unbeaten home-court record intact Tuesday night with a 53-31 Northside Conference victory over the Dietrich Blue Devils.

     Senior Jacy Baird (8 points, 8 rebounds, 3 steals, 3 assists) and junior Baley Barg (11 points, 9 boards, 3 assists) had strong games as the Panthers put nine players in the scoring column—none with more than Barg’s game-high 11 points.

     The Panther lead reached 23 points before Carey (39.3 ppg defense this season, down from 45.7 ppg last year) locked down the triumph with a fourth-quarter slowdown. It meant Carey is on its way to a sixth straight 20-win boys’ season.

     Carey (15-2, 9-0 home, 6-0 league) made it eight consecutive wins with a lofty 45% field goal percentage and 40-21 rebounding edge over a team expected to be Carey’s toughest foe in the Northside. The Panthers swept the series, having won at Dietrich 47-44 Jan. 14.

     It wasn’t Dietrich’s night at all. The Blue Devils shot only 22% and spent a good part of the second and third quarters completely scoreless. Dietrich (10-6, 4-2) saw its six-game win streak come to an end. That included a 57-49 home victory over previously unbeaten Castleford in its last start Jan. 29.

     Carey’s leading scorer Blair Peck (13.8 ppg) was one of many contributors. They included Peck (7 points, 7 boards), Shane Bingham (6 points, 2 assists), Jack Cenarrusa (5 points, 2 boards), Chance Chavez (5 points), Dillon Cenarrusa (4 points, 4 rebounds), Joey Laidlaw (2 points, 2 rebounds), Brandon Dilworth (4 rebounds) and Caleb Cenarrusa (5 points, 2 rebounds, 2 steals, 2 assists).

     Andru Howard (10 points), Gray Weber (8 points, 3 rebounds) and Jakob Howard (7 rebounds) led Dietrich’s attack.

     Carey was due to visit Camas County Thursday night and travel to Hagerman (10-6) Saturday, Feb. 5 for a 4 p.m. varsity game. Carey slipped past Hagerman 50-47 Dec. 3.

     The CommunitySchool boys (1-12, 0-7) dropped a 52-27 home league game to Richfield Tuesday. Among the Cutthroats pitching in were Doug Dufur (10 points), Dane Inman and Colton Sholtis 4 points each, Henry Rickbeil (3 points, 11 blocks), Taylor Adler (5 points) and Ben Swift (16 rebounds).
