ATHENA - The Weston-McEwen TigerScots boys basketball team committed just seven turnovers and had 20 team assists - on 28 buckets - to win easily over the Pilot Rock Rockets here Friday night, 73-36, in Blue Mountain Conference action.

"We had the most overall team intensity, and defensive intensity, that we've had in awhile," W-M coach Brian Pickard said of his team's overall effort.

The TigerScots had 16 steals, three apiece for Miles Thul, Aaron Speed and Dallas Reich.

W-M also had six blocks, all by Ron Terjeson.

In addition to the defense, W-M hit five 3-pointers and had three players finish in double-figure scoring.

Tyler Babb led the TigerScots in points with 20, Thul added 18 points and Reich finished with 11.

"We did a good job of getting the ball inside to Babb and Reich," Pickard said. "We also got good defense from everyone, got some steals, got out in the open court and made some easy baskets."

The TigerScots beat up on the BMC's fourth-place team while holding onto their second-place standing in the conference. W-M improved to 9-2 in league and 15-4 overall going into a Saturday night game at Elgin.

"We are playing some of our best basketball at the right time," Pickard said, "But Pilot Rock is a young team that is well-coached and will a force to be reckoned with in the future."
