SHO-BAN 75, GRACE LUTHERAN 27

Harley Jackson’s 33 points carried Sho-Ban to a 75-27 home win Tuesday over Grace Lutheran.

Jackson made 7 of 10 3-pointers to help the Chiefs score 22 or more points in each of the first three periods.

“We shot super well,” Sho-Ban coach Justin Dance said. “It was good to see the ball go through the hoop and reestablish that confidence.”

Emma Grayson scored eight points for Grace Lutheran (1-9), which hosts Watersprings on Saturday. Sho-Ban (12-4, 3-1 1A DII District 5-6) hosts Mackay on Friday.

TWIN FALLS 36, POCATELLO 24

Pocatello’s offense came up short in Tuesday’s 36-24 home loss to Twin Falls.

Poky’s defense held the Bruins to their second-lowest point total this season, including a two-point second quarter.

“We continue to do a good job defensively,” Indians coach Sunny Evans said. “If we can learn to get our offense up to the same level of our defense, we’ll see a little more success.”

Alexia Tinno scored eight points to lead Pocatello (2-13, 3-10 4A District 4-5), which plays Thursday at Century.

BLACKFOOT 56, MADISON 37

Blackfoot came alive in the second half and beat Madison 56-37 on Tuesday in Blackfoot.

The Broncos held a narrow 19-15 halftime lead before outscoring the Bobcats 21-11 in the third quarter.

“It took us a while. They run kind of a high zone, they’re really long,” Blackfoot coach Courtnie Smith said. “It took us a couple quarters to get our shots going. It was a good game, everybody got to score.”

Tenleigh Smith led 10 Broncos scorers with 19 points. Blackfoot (11-5, 4-1 4A District 6) hosts Idaho Falls on Thursday.

BOYS BASKETBALL

SHO-BAN 57, GRACE LUTHERAN 50

Sho-Ban built an early lead and never looked back, beating Grace Lutheran 57-50 on Tuesday in Fort Hall.

The Chiefs were up 15-4 by the end of the opening quarter, providing enough cushion to withstand the Royals’ late push.

“We jumped out on them pretty quick,” Sho-Ban coach Tim Wilson said. “We were putting up some shots. I challenged the guys tonight to do that because we haven’t been doing that as of late.”

TJ Lama scored a team-high 18 points for the Chiefs (3-8, 2-3 1A DII District 5-6), who host Mackay on Saturday. Joe Besel poured in a game-high 32 for Grace Lutheran (2-7, 2-3 1A DII District 5-6), which hosts Watersprings on Saturday.

Marsh Valley at Aberdeen

Marsh Valley’s game Tuesday at Aberdeen was postponed because of winter weather and rescheduled for Wednesday at Aberdeen.
