BAKER CITY, Ore. - Will Barr dropped five 3-point baskets and scored 19 points to lead a balanced Baker offensive attack as the Bulldogs buried Mac-Hi 100-31 here Friday night in a boys Greater Oregon League basketball game.

Barr was one of five Bulldogs in double figures, followed by Coleman Lay with 15 points, Ty Everson with 13 and Justin Durflinger and Jordan Curtis with 10 points each.

Derek Richwine paced the Pioneers with seven points. Ricky Angel and Enrigue Hernandez each hit a pair of 3-point baskets and totaled six points apiece.

Baker is a great team," Mac-Hi coach Sean Oliver said. "They were running like a well-oiled machine. I can see them going far."

The Bulldogs improved their GOL record to 6-0 and their overall record to 15-3. Mac-Hi nose dived to 0-6 and 3-16. The Pioneers don't play again until Saturday night when they entertain Ontario in a league game.

The Pioneers actually led 6-2 at the outset. But by the time the first-quarter buzzer sounded, Baker was in command 34-9 and never let up.

"It was all man-to-man, full-court pressure in the first half," Oliver said of the Bulldogs' defensive effort. "I thought (point guard) Oscar Flores dealt with it pretty well, but they never allowed us to set up any kind of offense.

"They're just a well-coached team. They found our gaps, got up about five points and it set in with the boys that they were the better team, and we just weren't out there. It looked like we expected to lose instead of going out and trying to win."
