State B 2013: Tourney scores, schedules and news coverage from The Spokesman-Review

Saturday’s State 2B results

Boys

First place/Second place

Erik Muelheims scored 26 points and the top-ranked Dragons routed the defending champion Bulldogs in the title game.

As was the case in their four previous meetings this season, Colfax didn’t have an answer for St. George’s suffocating defense. Bulldogs’ star Brandon Gfeller, who averaged 22.3 points per game during the regular season, scored just five points.

Gfeller saw double teams and multiple defenders all game and failed to get into any kind of rhythm.

Will Tender added 13 points and Dexter Sienko chipped in nine points and 15 rebounds for the Dragons.

St. George’s will have a vast majority of their team, including all of their key players, back next year.

Both teams shot well from the 3-point line as Wahkiakum made 10 of its 22 attempts and Lind-Ritzville/Sprague was 9 of 28.

First place/Second place

Led by Kelsey Moos’ dominance on both ends, the Reardan girls pulled away in the second half and captured their third straight title.

Northwest Christian held an early seven-point lead and led by two at half. Then Reardan passed NWC and started to build a comfortable lead in the third quarter. Charlene Gray hit a 3-pointer to put the Indians ahead by six. Moos followed with seven points in 70 seconds to give Reardan an 11-point advantage.

The Crusaders chipped away and narrowed the gap to four points early in the fourth, but Gray and Chantel Heath hit back to back 3s to put Reardan back up by 10.

Pe Ell withstood a late charge from Morton-White Pass to win.

After missing two crucial free throws a night before in a loss to Northwest Christian, Pe Ell’s Sami Robinson made both her attempts with 7.1 seconds left to give the Trojans a four-point lead and the eventual win.

Kylie Allen’s only shot attempt of the game for the Timberwolves was a 3-pointer with 8.1 seconds left to bring Morton-White Pass within two, but Robinson’s free throws put the game out of reach.

Robinson led the Trojans with 18 points and three assists and was 7 of 7 from the free-throw line. Whitney Elledge and Ashley Kelly led the Timberwolves with 14 and 12 points, respectively.
