Dietrich, Carey play for Northside title

Boys’ hoops tourney in Gooding

     The eight-school Northside Conference boys’ varsity basketball tournament narrowed down to its Final Four this week and those were the top four seeds—defending champion Dietrich, No. 2 Carey, No. 4 Castleford and No. 3 Richfield.

     Dietrich (19-3) took its high-powered offense up against the Carey Panthers (13-9) Thursday in the district championship game at Gooding High. The two teams also clashed in last year’s final, Dietrich winning 58-49.

     The winner of Dietrich-Carey automatically qualified for the State 1A Division 2 tournament March 6-8 in Caldwell. The Dietrich-Carey loser plays again today, Friday at 7 p.m. at Gooding against the winner of Thursday’s loser-out game between Richfield (12-11) and Castleford (9-12).

     And tonight’s winner will secure the other Northside berth to next week’s eight-school state tournament.

     Carey won its semi-final 58-37 over Richfield Tuesday as sophomore Joe Parke (20 points, 9 rebounds, 4 blocks) and junior Matt Whitworth (13 points, 10 boards, 3 assists) had big games for the Panthers (45% field goal shooting).

     Coach Dick Simpson’s Panthers had 15 blocked shots and Richfield struggled with 30% field goal shooting and 33 turnovers. Carey contributors included Nate Adamson (9 points, 4 assists, 2 steals), Collin Whitby (6 points, 4 assists, 4 steals), Luis Garcia (3 points, 6 blocks, 2 steals), Chris Peck (4 points, 3 assists) and Toby Whitworth (2 points).

     In Tuesday’s other semi-final, Dietrich raced past Castleford 96-55.

     Over in the consolation bracket Tuesday, Lighthouse Christian won 63-42 over No. 8 Camas County and Murtaugh ended the Community School’s season 57-46. On Wednesday, Castleford ousted Murtaugh 55-49 and Richfield slipped past Lighthouse Christian 38-36.


Adler finishes as No. 4 all-time Cutthroat

     With his team-high 12 points in Tuesday’s 57-46 loss to Murtaugh, Community School senior Taylor Adler finished as the No. 4 all-time Cutthroat scorer. Adler’s 273 points this season (15.2 ppg) lifted him to 693 in 67 career games (10.3 ppg).

     Other Cutthroat scorers Tuesday were Garrett Rawlings 11 points, Doug DuFur 9, Reed Roudabush 7 and Daniel DuFur 7.

     Season statistics follow:
