MORO, Ore. — The Weston-McEwen boys basketball won its two games in the Sherman County Invitational to take home the first-place trophy behind balanced team scoring Friday and Saturday.

The TigerScots won 79-56 over Southwest Christian and 73-65 against Culver.

W-M had four players score in double figures in each game and were led by Jacob Ramirez, who flirted with a triple-double in both games. Ramirez had seven assists and nine steals in each game while pumping in 13 and 14 points, respectively.

Tyler Peterson grabbed a team-high 13 boards against Southwest Christian.

W-M won the battle of the boards versus Culver, 34-26, while Nick Pease had a team-high 13 rebounds.

The turnover-to-assist ratio and the free-throw shooting wasn’t where it needed to be, W-M coach Brian Pickard said.

“We could have put up ninety points if we had made more free throws and cut down on our turnovers,” Pickard said, “Overall, I’m really happy with where we are at in the first two games of the season.”

W-M hosts Waitsburg-Prescott Friday at 7:30 p.m. .
