Boys basketball: Sutey's big night keeps Hanford's season alive

February 15, 2013 

HANFORD 83, ROGERS 61: Brennan Sutey scored a career-high 22 points and three other Hanford players also scored in double figures as the Falcons eliminated visiting Rogers of Spokane in the Class 3A District 5/8 tournament Friday.

Hanford plays at University today for a chance to advance to regionals.

“Brennan had his best offensive game tonight as a Hanford Falcon,” said Hanford coach Paul Mayer. “And we just really had probably as good a night this season offensively.”

Indeed. Also scored in double figures for the Falcons were Jalen DeVine and Joe Douglas with 19 points each, and Jalen Watson with 18 points.

Douglas completed the double-double with 10 rebounds.

“Now, we’ve got a big road game (tonight),” said Mayer.
