ATHENA — Weston-McEwen TigerScots boys’ basketball team took a pair of Blue Mountain Conference wins over the weekend, defeating Heppner 68-51 on Friday night and Elgin 55-44 on Saturday.

The TigerScots played their best basketball of the weekend Friday against the Mustangs, W-M coach Brian Pickard said.

“Last night (Friday) we got off to a great start,” Pickard said. “We scored 27 points in the first quarter and were up by 20 points at the start. Then tonight we played real well in spurts against Elgin and then we took off two to three minutes at a time without moving around much.”

Tyler Peterson led the scoring for W-M both nights, pumping in 29 points Saturday and 22 points Friday.

Nick Pease led the TigerScots (3-1 BMC, 7-2) with 12 boards on Friday and eight on Saturday.

“It is finally getting to the point where we have everyone back from injury or sickness,” Pickard said. “We have some things that we need to work on in practice but it is key that we have everybody back and playing together again.”

The TigerScots play Thursday in the D.A. Davidson Christmas tournament at Whitman College.
