WAITSBURG - Waitsburg-Prescott's boys basketball team continued its excellent season with its 13th straight win, nearly doubling up Touchet at home 80-41 on Tuesday.

"We're getting our basketball shoes on," said W-P head coach T.J. Scott. "Our guys had a long football season so we kind of had to grind out some wins early, but now we're hitting our 3s. It's a major improvement from the outside."

W-P (13-1, 7-0) drained six treys, including a pair from Zach Bartlow, who paced the team with 16 points.

"It's not every day that you can put up 80 points and have a high scorer with 16 points," Scott said. "We have great depth, which is a huge plus."

David Brock's 10 boards led a 46 rebound night for W-P.

Up next for Touchet is a Friday home game against Lacrosse-Washtucna, while W-P draws a trip to Asotin.
