TigerScots pick up pair of Blue Mountain victories

ATHENA - Weston-McEwen picked up two Blue Mountain Conference boys basketball victories over the weekend, downing Union Friday night, 62-46, before taking care of Elgin, 60-29, Saturday night.

"We're happy to get a 2-0 start to league," W-M coach Brian Pickard said. "We've had a total of 10 practices (following an extended football playoff run), so it's good to get games under out belt.

"I was pretty happy with our performance last night," he said of Union. "Union's an athletic team, but with our size inside, we took advantage of it.

"Tonight, Elgin came out and was deliberate on offense. They were looking for the shot they wanted, and I was pleased with out defense. We took away what they wanted to do."

Dallas Reich led the TigerScots in scoring both games, putting up 25 points against Union and 20 against Elgin.

Ron Terjeson had a triple-double against Union with 19 points, 14 rebounds and 10 blocks, and he scored 16 points and grabbed 11 boards, along with six blocks, against Elgin.

"Against Union, we got in a lot of foul trouble early," Pickard said. "We had a lot of kids on the floor with little or no varsity experience, and they came in and helped us out. It was good to see them respond that way."

W-M, now 3-1 on the season and 2-0 in BMC play, head to La Grande Wednesday to tip off a tournament. The TigerScots play Joseph at 4:30 p.m.
