PASCO - Wa-Hi's boys basketball team shot just 29 percent here Saturday night in a 52-30 loss to Kennewick at Columbia Basin College.

The Blue Devils, 1-2 overall, fell behind 18-10 after one quarter and were outscored 21-7 in the final period.

"They were really physical," Wa-Hi coach John Golden said of the Lions. "Other than the last stretch (in the fourth quarter), we didn't defend all that bad after the first quarter.

"We got it to five in the third quarter," Golden said. "In the fourth quarter, we were within five or six, then they hit a couple of 3s and that broke our back.

"We need to score," Golden said. "Our defensive effort is there, but we have to work on the offensive game. We'll keep working and trying to improve."

Wa-Hi did not have a double-figure scorer in the game. Alex Ceron led the Blue Devils with eight points.

Ceron, Moe Handcox and Matt Watson grabbed four rebounds apiece for Wa-Hi.

The Blue Devils host Hanford on Friday.
