- February 27, 2008 Page 9 II IIIHI II IIIIIIII I III III Sweet Home 52, Newport 45 Things didn't look good to start with as the Newport Cubs built their lead against the Husky boys basketball team on Feb. 19; but turning the game around and winning it paved the way to a tie for the league championship. The sluggish Huskies gave up a 13-6 lead to the Cubs, who were running a triangle and two defense to stop Gabe Kauffman and Ryan Graville. The Huskies slowed that mo- mentum down in the second quarter with Brent Moyer coming off the Husky bench to contribute a three and help break down the triangle- and-two defense. The Cubs still expanded their lead by a point, to 25-17. Down eight at halftime, the Huskies had their backs to the wail. They had to win the game for a shot at the championship. With a win, they would be guaranteed no worse than second place in league standings. Losing the game would have put them in third. "We started out slow, and defensively, we gave up some sec- ond-chance opportunities," Coach Tim Little said. "Their big guys capitalized." "It was pretty much all based on our intensity," Kauffman said of the win.

"Gabe had a big third quarter, with eight points," Little said, and in the fourth quarter, Sweet Home was 9-10 from the foul line. The Huskies had definitely picked up their intensity. The second half started with a defensive stop by Emmert, Little said, and then Sweet Home cut loose offensively. Newport started the third quar- ter in its triangle-and-two, and Em- mart hit the first bucket inside. "At that point I think Colton had 10 or 12 points," Little said. "They knew if they were go- ing to leave Colton open the rest of the game, he was going to blow it wide open," he said. The Cubs went back to a man-to-man defense, opening up the floor for Kauffman and Graville. The Huskies tied the game 33- 33 at the end of the third quarter, Little said. To start the fourth, Em- mert put up a lay-in, "and we didn't look back." Little praised Moyer and Levi Marchbanks, who both came off the bench in a big way. In the fourth quarter, Moyer handled some Newport pressure as well as helping relieve pressure in the second quarter by turning in a three. Graville has been huge the past five games, averaging 15 points per game, Little said. "It's prefect tim- ing for us to have three offensive weapons, and Ryan also is doing well defensively." The win "solidified us in no worse than second place," Little said, no matter what happened Friday night with Central. As it ended up, the Huskies i9-3) went 2-1 with Philomath (9- 3) who defeated Taft Friday night, placing the Huskies second overall in league and giving Philomath the title, Newport (8-4) finished third and will face Taft (2-10) for state seeding. The winner of that game will travel to Sweet Home for a shot at second seed. Taft tied Central's record, but Taft won two of the three games where the two teams met. Kauffman led Husky scoring with 22 points. Emmert added 12; Graville, 11; Moyer, 3; March- banks, 2; and Jerad Olsen, two. Josh Riggs and Dustin Hay played but did not score. Travis Iverson and Cole Skriv- er each had 12 points to lead the Cubs. Jay Torland added eight; Ty- ler Conklin, seven; Daryn Palmer. four; and Eddie Crowe, two. See Boys, page 10 l t t h I
