Ferris tops Shadle in dandy

Ferris transition and ability to post its guards for easy baskets spelled the difference in Tuesday's 71-66 victory over Shadle Park in an entertaining Greater Spokane League boys basketball showdown.

The Saxons built an early 8-point lead and led 41-29 in the first minute of the third quarter, before the Highlanders came back for a 58-57 advantage with 4:10 remaining.

Then Erick Cheadle made three free throws and Shadle missed a couple of ill-timed 3-point shots as Ferris ran off 9 straight points for the win.

While Ferris was getting inside, Shadle took 26 3-pointers and made 7.
