BAKER - The host Baker Bulldogs placed four players in double figures here Friday night and rolled to a 76-46 Greater Oregon League boys basketball victory over Mac-Hi.

Erik Blankenship led Baker with 18 points. Dekker Smith was next with 17, Jesse Brown added 15, and B.J. Quintana scored 12 points.

Nik Stanford led the Pioneers, now 0-6 in the GOL and 6-15 overall, with 18 points. Oscar Flores was next on Mac-Hi's scoring list with 10.

"Nick had a pretty good game," Mac-Hi coach Nick Ellis said. "We ask for a lot out of him."

The Bulldogs made 20-of-27 free throws in the game. Mac-Hi was just 3-for-4. The Pioneers were whistled for 21 fouls compared with only eight for Baker.

"A lot of our fouls were because we were a step slow," Nick Ellis said. "We were not very good defensively. They like to go to the hole.

"They spread the wealth," Ellis said of the Bulldogs. "They are balanced and have talented basketball players."

Mac-Hi was off Saturday and doesn't return to action until Saturday when the Pioneers travel to Ontario for a GOL game.
