Boys basketball roundup: Richland wins shootout with Kennewick

January 4, 2013 

Richland’s Nathan Streufert had a career game and the Bombers barely hung on against a furious Kennewick rally, picking up a 97-92 Mid-Columbia Conference victory in Richland.

Streufert scored a career-high 34 points and pulled down a game-high 11 rebounds, but it was almost all for naught thanks to the hot shooting of Ryan Westover.

Trailing 81-56, Kennewick lit the scoreboard on fire in the fourth quarter, scoring 38 points.

Westover had 19 of his 23 in the fourth, including six 3-pointers.

“Basically, there was no defense played for much of the game for either team,” Richland coach Earl Streufert said. “In the end, we played even less defense than we had the whole game.

“(Westover) got hot and we made some silly fouls, and they closed within five at the end.”

Payton Radliff added 25 points for Richland, while Jacob DeVries had 16.

Mitchel Mueller had 21 points and eight assists, while Devven Ramos added 15 points.

“That was a big lift for us,” Hanford coach Paul Mayer said of Douglas’ offensive burst.

Southridge 55, Chiawana 44: The Suns outscored the Riverhawks 22-7 in the fourth quarter, erasing a 37-33 third-quarter deficit to lock up the MCC road win in Pasco.

“I was very happy with our defense through all four quarters. We held them to 19 points in the first half,” Chiawana coach Chad Herron said. “But they got the momentum in the fourth quarter, and we really struggled to score.”

The Riverhawks led 26-19 at the half but hit just three field goals in the second half.

“Things just kind of snowballed, and they started to score on every possession,” Herron said.

David Mazzei led Southridge with 16 points and a pair of steals. Wesley Henderson paced Chiawana with 17 points and seven rebounds.

Rosalia 78, Liberty Christian 73 (2 OT): Isaiah Ojeda (17 points) was one of three Liberty Christian players in double figures, but the Patriots fell short against the host Spartans in double overtime.

“The game was lost and won on the boards,” Liberty Christian coach William Keck said. “We were outrebounded by 12, which was the difference, I think.” The Patriots also had trouble stopping Rosalia’s Craig Nelson, who went off for 42 points.

Still, Liberty Christian got 16 points and nine rebounds from Mike Olson and 14 points from Tyler Morris in its closest game of the season.

“We’re only 30 minutes south of Spokane right now,” Keck said, “but it was well worth the money.”
