Area boys basketball

Class B top-ranked Reardan overcame its biggest challenge of the season Friday, and in the process erased one of the area’s most significant streaks.

The Indians (13-0, 8-0) used a 15-4 third-quarter run to end sixth-ranked Almira/Coulee-Hartline’s 28-game home win streak, 53-49.

Jason Pierce of ACH (9-2, 6-2) hit a 3-pointer with 19 seconds left to cut Reardan’s lead to 51-49. Pierce missed a 3-pointer and the Indians secured the rebound and hit two free throws.
