ROSALIA — The Touchet boys basketball started slow, trailed 39-15 at halftime and went on to lose to the Rosalia Spartans, 66-44.

"We got a little indimidated by their size," Touchet coach Tim McKeown said. "A couple of blocked shots there in the first half and we stopped attacking the basket. That was basically the difference in the first and second half. In the second half, we were more aggressive and attacking the hoop, which opened up the outside for shooting the 3-pointers."

The Indians hit five 3-pointers on the night and played with the Spartans in the second half, where the scoring was almost equal.

Marshall Byerley hit two of the five Touchet 3-pointers and was high score with 13.

Byerley dished out four assists for the Indians.

Matt Kates added 11 points in the losing effort.

Rosalia outrebounded Touchet, 30-18.

The Indians had 12 more turnovers than the Spartans, a count of 22-10.

The record for Touchet is now 8-7 overall and 3-4 in conference.

The Indians play again Tuesday at Waitsburg-Prescott at 7:30 p.m.
