WAITSBURG - Waitsburg-Prescott's boys basketball team continued its season-long roll Wednesday, pushing its winning streak to 15 games with a 69-46 victory over Walla Walla Valley Academy in a Southeast 2B League game.

Four members of the W-P squadron cracked double figures for W-P (9-0 in SE2B, 15-1 overall).

"This is really becoming a basketball team," said W-P head coach T.J. Scott. "We got a late start because of how late these guys played into the football season, and we had to grind out some early games, but now we have the offensive weapons to play with pretty much anyone."

The Knights (2-8, 5-9) fell behind by 17 at the break, before W-P dropped a 27-14 third quarter on its rival to put the game out of reach.

W-P's Zach Bartlow was the high scorer with 15 points.

"We played about as well as we could in the second and third quarters," Scott said. "Our offense keeps evolving, and we are on a good pace as far as getting to where we want to be in the playoffs."

The victory moves W-P within a win of the SE2B regular season title via the tie-breakers the team holds over Asotin and Liberty Christian.

"That's not our ultimate goal to win the (league) title, but we would be pleased to win the title," Scott said. "This is turning into a complete team, and that is exciting for a coaching staff to see."
