BOYS BASKETBALL: Richland routs Hanford

December 22, 2012 

Nathan Streufert led five Richland players in double figures with 18 points as the Richland boys basketball team cruised to a 91-57 road win over cross-town rival Hanford in Mid-Columbia Conference action Saturday.

“They shot extremely well, and we gave them a lot of layups,” Falcons coach Paul Mayer said. “All the credit goes to them.”

The Bombers led 44-35 at the half, but pulled away in the third quarter with a 23-12 run.

Jacob DeVries and Drew McCullough each added 16 points for Richland, while Spencer Wheeler had 12 points and Payton Radliff 10.

Jalen Watson led the Falcons with 19 points and Brennan Sutey added 12. Big man Joe Douglas was held to 10 points.

“Joe was in foul trouble the whole night,” Mayer said. “This is our first league loss — just one of the 14 pieces of the pie. We will try and bounce back next Friday at Mount Spokane.”
