PREP BASKETBALL — Boys: Ione 78, Helix 31

IONE - Ione's boys basketball team capitalized on 22 first-half turnovers by Helix Saturday night to score a 78-31 home victory over the Grizzlies.

The Grizzlies struggled with Ione's pressure, falling to 0-8 on the season.

"We dug ourselves quite a hole in the first half," said Grizzlies head coach Brooke Garton. "When you turn the ball over 22 times in 16 minutes you know you're in trouble, but our guys regrouped and we played much better in the second half."

Ione was led by 16 points, including a pair of three pointers from Kevin Larue, while Zach Sundin led Helix with nine.

Helix travels to Elgin on Tuesday.

"If we can put together an entire game like the way we played in the second half then that win will come," Garton said. "We just have to keep working at everything."
