DAYTON - Garett Turner scored 23 points to pace a balanced Dayton offense as the Bulldogs rolled to a 73-28 victory over Tri-Cities Prep here Tuesday night in a boys Southeast 2B District basketball game.

But Bulldogs coach Roy Ramirez gave credit for the victory to his team's defensive intensity.

"We played the kind of defense we have to play," Ramirez said. "They couldn't get anything going against us. Every shot they took was contested with a hand in the face. We didn't give them any free ones like we did at their place."

A week earlier, the first-place Bulldogs narrowly escaped with a 51-49 victory over the Jaguars in Pasco. Tuesday's game here was never close as Dayton raced to a 19-4 first-quarter lead and held a commanding 39-8 advantage at halftime.

Dayton improved to 10-1 in league games and 18-1 overall. The Bulldogs close out the regular season here Friday against DeSales before entering district tournament play the next week.

The Jaguars tumbled to 3-6 and 8-11. TCP hosts Waitsburg-Prescott on Friday.

Wyatt Frame was also in double figures for Dayton with 11 points and four other Bulldogs scored between seven and nine points. Hayden Fullerton and Kroft Sonderland finished with nine points each, Joey Schlachter tallied eight and Colton Bickelhaupt contributed seven.

Briar Westerfield led the Jaguars with nine points.
