     High school basketball fans got a glimpse of Carey High School’s “Big 3” scoring machine during a Northside Conference 1A Division 2 boys’ varsity game Monday hosted by the Community School at The Fish Tank in Sun Valley.

     Carey juniors Nate Adamson (17.0 ppg) and Matt Whitworth (12.4) along with sophomore Joe Parke (15.1) combined for 58 of their team’s 67 points and 28 of the team’s 42 rebounds in a 67-37 Panther victory over the Cutthroats.

     Dick Simpson’s Panthers (5-5, 2-0 league) put up their biggest quarter of the season, 22 points in the first as Adamson, Whitworth and Parke tallied 20 of those points with an efficient team passing game.

     The Panthers shot 48% from the field and committed only 10 turnovers, compared to 30 turnovers for the Cutthroats.

     Led by senior Taylor Adler (11.6 ppg), the Cutthroats hung tough in the first half and trailed only 36-24 at intermission. It was all Panthers after halftime as the Cutthroats (2-5, 1-2) couldn’t match the pace.

     Adamson’s all-around play (23 points, 6 rebounds, 8 steals, 8 assists, 2 blocks) topped the Panthers.

     Others were Parke (18 points, 12 rebounds, 1 block), Whitworth (17 points, 10 boards), Derrick Baird (4 points, 2 assists), Corban Johnson (3 points), Collin Whitby (2 points, 6 boards, 2 assists) and Chris Peck (3 boards, 2 steals, 3 assists).

     Sparking the Cutthroats were Adler (12 points, 6 rebounds, 2 steals), Garrett Rawlings (5 points, 7 boards, 2 steals, 3 assists, 4 blocks) and Reed Roudabush (7 points, 8 rebounds, 1 block). Chipping in were guards Doug DuFur (8 points, 3 rebounds, 2 steals) and Daniel DuFur (4 points).

     Coach Mike Payne’s home team also got contributions from Alex Feldman (1 point, 4 rebounds) and Keegan Whitelaw (4 boards, 2 assists).

     The Panthers host Castleford Thursday, the same night the Cutthroats entertain Bliss.

     Last week, Parke (6 rebounds, 3 steals) scored a career-best 28 points and Adamson (4 rebounds, 6 assists, 3 steals) added 16 points in a 49-45 Carey win at Richfield. The Panthers shot 55% from the field and 14-for-19 from the free throw line in the victory.

     Parke shot 11-for-13 from the field against Richfield.

     Friday night, Butte County (10-0) out-scored host Carey 60-47 in a well-played game with both teams shooting well over 40% and keeping their mistakes to a minimum.

     Whitworth topped the charts with 17 points and 9 rebounds as Carey out-boarded Butte County 30-23. Other contributors were Adamson (14 points, 8 rebounds, 6 assists, 3 steals) and Parke (9 points, 6 rebounds).

     Defending State 1A Divsiion 1 champ Butte County has won 34 straight games for former Richfield coach Steve Kent.

     Adler tallied 16 Thursday but visiting Dietrich (8-2) captured its first Northside win 62-30 over the Cutthroats. Trey Dill’s 10 points led nine Blue Devil scorers. Dietrich and Carey clash Feb. 14, in Carey.
