WAITSBURG - JaMarcus Bone hit a last-second 3-pointer from the corner to give Pilot Rock a 46-43 victory over Waitsburg-Prescott, which just finished the football season after winning the state championship on Saturday, Tuesday night in Waitsburg.

W-P held a 34-32 lead going into the fourth quarter against the Rockets, but Bone came alive with nine of Pilot Rock's 14 fourth-quarter points to power the Rockets to the win.

Bone led Pilot Rock with 13 points on the night.

"We practiced four days last week after football and then we had a practice Monday (to meet the state-mandated five-practice minimum), so we had some short practices," W-P coach T.J. Scott said. "The guys were in football mode - we were in foul trouble all night and we didn't shoot well, as I expected."

Scott said the lack of practice time caused W-P to struggle with its touch on the offensive side.

"I can't even tell you how many layins and put-backs we missed," Scott said. "On the defensive side we did very well. We had them down until the fourth quarter, then he (Bone) scored nine in the fourth, so that obviously hurt."

Senior Zach Bartlow led W-P in scoring with 14 points on six field goals and 2-of-7 free throws for the night. Sterling Eastman also cracked double digits for W-P with 11 points on the night off of three 3-pointers and a field goal.

W-P is coming off a season in which they went undefeated in the regular season, except for a first-game, 47-45, loss to Weston-McEwen.

Waitsburg-Prescott hosts North Powder at 6:30 p.m. on Friday.
