Boys basketball: Bartlett, Anderson lead River View past Kiona-Benton

January 22, 2013 

River View’s Kody Bartlett hit a key 3-pointer and played lockdown defense Tuesday to lead the Panthers to a 51-41 upset of visiting Kiona-Benton in an SCAC East game in Finley.

Bartlett held Cristian Aguilar, the Bears’ all-time leading scorer, to eight points in the victory.

“We played straight man-to-man. He does a great job for us, he is our defensive stopper,” River View coach Roger Sonderland said.

Bartlett also hit a 3-pointer with 90 seconds to play to put River View on top by five.

“We started out with a good lead and Ki-Be slowly tore into it and it was back and forth,” Sonderland said. “The star of the night, though, was Mike Anderson.”

Anderson had a game-high 17 points and 12 rebounds for River View.

Mick Phelps’ 13 points led Kiona-Benton, which suffered its first league loss of the season.
