ATHENA - Weston-McEwen's boys handed Stanfield its first loss of the season here Saturday night.

The TigerScots prevailed 61-52.

Stanfield entered the game ranked No. 2 in the latest OSAA Power Rankings, according to W-M coach Brian Pickard.

The TigerScots improved to 9-4 overall and 3-1 in the Blue Mountain Conference.

"We came out with a little chip on our shoulder after (Friday) night (a loss at Irrigon)," Pickard said. "We stepped up and wanted to make a little bit of a statement. We hit some big free throws down the stretch."

Tyler Babb tallied a game-high 26 points, 17 of them in the second half.

"We had some guys come off the bench and played big minutes for us," Pickard said. "I was happy with the way we played."

The TigerScots' next game is Friday at Enterprise.
