Hanford boys basketball defeats Southridge

By the Tri-City HeraldJanuary 12, 2013 

Hanford senior Jalen DeVine did wonders with his feet during football season as one of the Mid-Columbia Conference’s top running backs.

During the Falcons’ 54-49 MCC boys basketball win over Southridge on Saturday in Kennewick, DeVine took care of business while standing still, hitting 8 of 10 free throws in the fourth quarter to ice the victory.

DeVine, a 5-foot-10 guard, scored a game-high 19 points as Hanford erased a 28-22 halftime deficit against the Suns.

“They got on us early in the first quarter, but we made a little run that held them to five points in the second quarter,” Southridge coach D.J. Traver said. “They were able to whittle that away.”

Austin Molt and David Mazzei combined for 30 points to lead the Suns, who held Joe Douglas, an all-league post, to 10 points.

“(Brent) Schafer and (Bosco) Lopia played pretty good defense on Joe tonight,” Traver said. “They got him frustrated.”

Richland coach Earl Streufert praised Pasco’s defense after it held the league’s top offense to 39 percent shooting.

“They did a good job slowing the game down,” Streufert said. “They were zoning us, and we missed some pretty good shots.

“But we figured out some creative ways to get the ball inside, and once we got the lead we pretty much held on to it.”
