ATHENA — After a tough loss at top-ranked Grant Union Friday, the Weston-McEwen boys basketball team rebounded with a 64-50 thumping of Enterprise Saturday night.

Tyler Simmons led the TigerScots (5-2 overall, 1-1 in league) on Saturday night in multiple stat columns. The 6-foot-1 senior guard poured in a game-high 26 points and had eight steals, eight rebounds and four assists.

“He’s just a great all around player, floor leader,” W-M coach Bryan Pickard said of Simmons. “The kid’s one of the smartest basketball players I’ve been around. He’s been huge for us, but we have three or four guys that can put up points for us on any given night.”

That point was proved the night before against Grant Union as Linton McAllister had 20 and Justin Burke 15 points in a 69-64 loss.

The TigerScots next hit the court for the DeSales Christmas tournament Friday at 6 p.m. against University Prep (Seattle).
