COLTON, Wash. - Touchet fell to No 1. Colton Monday evening, scoring just 13 baskets en route to a 68-32 thrashing in Southeast 1B boys basketball.

Indians coach Tim McKeown said Touchet (3-9 SE1B, 8-10 overall) was intimidated by Colton's high ranking.

"I think the kids were a little bit psyched out," McKeown said. "Instead of having that hard-nosed attitude, we backed down a little bit. You're just going to have a team (Colton) that that takes it to you. They're a darn good team."

Vicente Flores led the Indians with 11 points, including one of Touchet's two 3s. Elias Martinez had the other.

Touchet takes the floor Friday at 7 p.m. when it travels to Pomeroy. The Indians host Tekoa-Oakesdale Saturday afternoon in their final game of the regular season.

McKeown said if the Indians win out, and several teams ahead of them lose, they could go to the SE1B playoffs. Touchet is currently in seventh; the cut off for postseason play is sixth place.
