Boys basketball: Richland High keeps rolling

January 7, 2014 

Richland 89, Pendleton 62: The Bombers continued their high-scoring ways, shooting 54 percent (35-for-65) in a nonleague road win over the Buckaroos on Tuesday. Nathan Streufert led Richland with 20 points and 13 rebounds, while Donte Robinson paced Pendleton with 23.

The Bombers jumped out to a 23-10 first-quarter lead and extended it to 52-26 at halftime.

“We led off with two big quarters, then got a little disinterested and didn’t play nearly as aggressively,” Richland coach Earl Streufert said. “They closed the gap a little, but a lot of guys got the opportunity to play.”

Drew McCullough had his best game of the season with 15 points, including 3-of-4 from 3-point range.

“It’s good to get him shooting the ball,” said Streufert, who did show a little concern over the team’s poor showing (9-of-17) from the free-throw line.

“We’re going to have to bring in a shaman,” Streufert quipped.

Richland also outrebounded Pendleton 44-27.
