TOUCHET — Cierra Jo McKeown scored a game-high 32 points as the Touchet girls basketball team beat LaCrosse-Washtucna on Saturday.

McKeown knocked down three 3-pointers and grabbed five steals for the Indians, who rebounded from their 46-38 loss to Pomeroy on Friday.

“She was on tonight,” Touchet coach Missy McKeown said. “She kind of struggled last night but tonight she really picked it up. She sees the floor really well so if you’re open, you’re going to get the ball. She’s a leader out there.”

The Tigercats had trouble with the Touchet zone defense, as the Indians restricted Lacrosse-Washtucna to only 12 points through the first three quarters of play. Touchet, on the other hand, scored 45 in the same span.

Jennifer Aceves added eight points and came up with a team-high five steals for Touchet.

“We started out in man-to-man and we switched to zone,” Missy McKeown said. “We could have pushed the ball a little bit more toward the end but I backed it off. I tried to get my subs in as much as possible.”
