Vallivue 67, Coeur d’Alene 45 For State Title

That sound heard in the third quarter wasn’t the Idaho Center roof collapsing. Truth be told, it was the sound of the after burners from the Vallivue Falcons going on a 13-0 run that provided more than enough separation from Coeur d’Alene. Vallivue did something that two other tall opponents couldn’t do against Coeur d’Alene. The second-ranked Falcons used their size inside to handle the Vikings 67-45 in the State 5A boys basketball championship game Saturday evening played before an estimated crowd of 6,000. Perhaps CdA’s collapse started well before the third quarter. Sure the Vikings led 22-21 at halftime, but it took 19 points from senior guard Nate Clinton for the Viks to escape to intermission with the lead. Greg Lee’s Sportslink report
