Boys basketball: Greyhound duo too much for Eagles

Jake Cillay scored 21 points and Micah Lagerquist added 20 as Pullman held off West Valley’s spirited second-half rally and claimed a 62-59 Great Northern League win Saturday at West Valley.

Martin Herford tallied a team-high 14 points for the Eagles (11-5, 5-3), including eight during West Valley’s 20-11 third-quarter run. Herford’s potential game-tying 3-pointer at the buzzer was off the mark.
