ENDICOTT - Touchet's boys basketball team dropped a pair of Southeast 1B basketball games over the weekend.

The Indians bowed at St. John-Endicott, 62-37, on Saturday night after losing at home to Rosalia, 56-35, on Friday night,

Touchet trailed by just nine at halftime on Friday night, but managed just 16 points after intermission compared with 28 for Rosalia - 14 in both the third and fourth quarters.

"We had some boys get into foul trouble," Touchet coach Tim McKeown said. "They just kept hitting their free throws (13-for-20 for the game) and taking it to the basket.

"We are a young team, with only one senior," McKeown said. "We have a lot of room to grow. It was our first real test and we didn't live up to it, but we are growing as a team."

Eric Hines and Will Huesby led Touchet on Friday night with 10 points apiece.

The Indians fell behind 20-6 after one quarter in Saturday night's loss in Whitman County.

Hines led Touchet with 16 points.

"St. John is a very quick team," McKeown said. "They are very fundamentally sound and ran the floor well."
