Weston-McEwen 60, Enterprise 59

ENTERPRISE, Ore. - Weston-McEwen gave up 12-point leads three times in a Blue Mountain Conference boys basketball battle with Enterprise here Friday night, but the TigerScots still managed to scrape out a 60-59 Blue Mountain Conference victory.

"They kept coming back," TigerScots head coach Brian Pickard said of the Outlaws.

The TigerScots had a one-point lead with a minute to go, but a foul moved Enterprise to the free-throw line for two shots. And the Outlaws converted both of them.

"They took a one-point lead with 16 seconds left and we went the length of the floor," Pickard said. "Ron Terjeson made a great half-court pass to Tyler Babb, and he made a move on the guy to score with eight seconds left."

Babb's basket held up as the TigerScots upended the No. 1-ranked team in Oregon's Class 2A state rankings going into the weekend.

"It's a huge game for us," Pickard said. "In the last two weeks, we've played and beaten both the No. 1- and No. 2-ranked teams in the OSAA power rankings. We're heading in the right direction."

Babb led the TigerScots with 22 points and Dallas Reich finished with 15. They each snared 10 rebounds as W-M beat Enterprise 26-16 on the glass.

Enterprise's Jared Michka scored 18 points to lead four Outlaws in double figures. Marcus Lynn finished with 12 points, Tyler Michka added 11 and Chaunce Galletly contributed 10.

Weston-McEwen improved to 11-4 overall, 4-1 in the BMC, going into a Saturday night home game against Heppner. Enterprise, 10-2 and 3-2, was at Pilot Rock.
