Final: CdA 47, Boise 37

The Coeur d’Alene girls basketball team played some of its best defense of the year and weathered foul trouble as the second-ranked Vikings knocked off No. 1-ranked Boise 47-37 in a State 5A tournament opener Thursday afternoon at the Idaho Center in Nampa.

Freshman Kendalyn Brainard and senior Amanda Buttrey led the Vikings (20-4) with 13 points apiece.

I’ll be back with my game story later.

In a State 3A opener, Kellogg topped Marsh Valley 45-37.

In a State 4A opener, Rigby defeated Moscow.

So much for being young.

The Coeur d’Alene High girls basketball team started fast and kept it going in the first half against top-ranked Boise. And the Vikings weathered foul trouble. Four players picked up two fouls. Still, Coeur d’Alene is up 25-13 at halftime.

Six-foot-3 junior Carli Rosenthal scored the game’s first three baskets, but then had to sit most of the half with two fouls. The Viks forced 12 turnovers, and turned many of those into points.
