ASOTIN — Waitsburg-Prescott lost Saturday’s Southeast B District cross-divisional basketball game against Northern Division leader Asotin here in a Barnes-burner.

A Shelby Barnes-burner, to be exact.

The Panther guard lit up W-P for 32 points in the 56-41 Asotin win.

"We gave Barnes too many chances," W-P coach Jerry Baker said. "She can go inside and outside. She’d shoot a 3 one time, then drive the next. We tried to man her, box-and-one her. She still got loose."

Even with Barnes’ 32 and a double-digit deficit after one quarter, W-P was still able to make a game of it in the fourth quarter.

"We got down by as much as 15, then worked really hard in the middle quarters to get back into it," Baker said. "We got (the lead) down to two in the fourth, then got a little lazy and threw the ball away."

Asotin held all W-P players to single digits. W-P was led in scoring by Amanda Weis and Krystal Harris who each scored nine. Post Genesis Pearson led all rebounders with 11 boards and chipped in eight points for the visitors.

With the loss W-P falls to 8-3 on the season. Waitsburg-Prescott plays again Friday at DeSales.
