WAITSBURG — Waitsburg-Prescott couldn’t handle a tall Sunnyside Christian team, falling to the Knights, 50-25, Thursday night in non-conference boys basketball.

“We played really hard, they were just way bigger than us,” W-P coach Tavis Crittenden said. “We just couldn’t hit outside shots tonight, we tried to penetrate and we couldn’t get fouled. They had a lot of blocks.”

Brandon Boersma (6-foot-8) led a trio of bigs that gave W-P fits.

“We held them to 20 in the first half, and they’re a pretty good team,” Crittenden said. “I’m really proud of our defensive effort tonight.”

Chance Leroue led W-P with 10 points on the night.

Sunnyside’s Alex Brouwer hit five field goals and 3-of-6 from the line for 16 points.

W-P (1-6) plays Touchet Thursday at the DeSales tournament.
