Roundup of Tuesday’s high school sports action from the Greater Spokane League and across Eastern Washington.
All games nonleague unless otherwise noted.
University 53, Cheney 47: Tyler Nelson scored 13 points, including three 3-pointers, and the visiting Titans beat the Blackhawks in the first game of the season for both teams.
Evan Stinson had 16 points and Jakeb Vallance added 15 points for the Blackhawks.
Cheney led 33-18 at halftime, but U-Hi outscored its host 21-4 in the third quarter as Stinson went cold.
“I was looking at the scoreboard at halftime and we usually score 18 points in a quarter,” U-Hi coach Garrick Phillips said. “We got 21 in (the third) so yeah, it was back and forth game. Really weird.”
A Stinson layup midway through the fourth put the Blackhawks up by three, but Nelson followed with a 3-pointer from the wing and Gabe Heimbigner added a short jumper.
Nelson’s 3 with 30 seconds remaining sealed it.
“That’s a really good team,” Phillips said of Cheney. “Obviously, Stenson’s a handful. We did a much better job on him in the second half, and he cooperated by missing some shots.”
Gonzaga Prep 78, Mead 69: Jamil Miller scored 31 points, Jace Swanson added 18 and the visiting Bullpups (2-0) beat the Panthers (0-1). Nash Dunham scored 21 points with five 3-pointers for the Panthers, who led by one point entering the fourth quarter.
