ST. JOHN — Touchet beat St. John-Endicott 55-49 here Saturday in boys Southeast 2B basketball.

“They put a scare into us,” Indians coach Tim McKeown said. “We finished (the third quarter) up three as we started to be more patient and we play at our best when we are in control. It was a rough game and a good win for us.”

Vincente Flores drained four treys and finished with 20 points to lead the Indians.

“Vincente was a spark for us,” coach McKeown added. “He made some good plays.”

Ruben Butler added 14 points to the winning Touchet effort.

The teams had 46 fouls between them.

On Friday, Wyatt Mitchell beat the final buzzer with a 3-ball as Garfield-Palouse hung on for a 50-47 win over the Indians.

Zach Carson led Touchet with 17 points and 12 rebounds.
