Moscow Boys Dig Down To Wrap Up Iml Pennant

They were pushed to the end Saturday, but Moscow held tough and clinched the Intermountain League boys basketball title.

Adam Miller hit five 3-pointers and scored 21 to lead the visiting Bears (13-3, 9-0) to a 37-35 win over second-place Kellogg (11-7, 5-3). Kellogg had held out slim hopes of beating Moscow and winning its final two to tie for the league crown.

Moscow pulled six points ahead in the third quarter and survived Kellogg’s last-second heave from near midcourt.

Moscow’s Drew Owen had eight rebounds. Heath Marek and Seth Rice had seven rebounds apiece for the host Wildcats.

The regular season ends Saturday.
