SUNNYSIDE, Wash. — Alex Brouwer led a trio of Sunnyside Christian bigs in a dominating performance over DeSales here Tuesday night.

Brouwer, a 6-foot-8 post, hit 10-of-12 field goals for 20 points to lead the Knights in a 70-50 non-conference boys basketball victory over the Irish.

“They shot real well,” said DeSales coach Allyn Griffin of the Knights, who hit 31-of-44 (70.5 percent) from the floor. “We didn’t play horrible, but they were efficient.

“We played hard,” Griffin said. “We weren’t error free tonight... but I’m proud of the way my guys played.”

Wyatt Hoff and Brandon Broersma chipped in 14 and 11 points, respectively, for the Knights.

Adam Eskil led DeSales with a 4-of-6 night from the floor — including a trio of 3-pointers — for 12 points. Matt Moore and Darryl Galloway each contributed 10 points for the Irish.

The Knights (14-2) are ranked No. 2 among Class 1B schools in the latest Associated Press poll.

DeSales (9-9, 4-4 Southeast 2B) has locked up fourth place in the SE2B, guaranteeing it a trip to the District 9 tournament.

The Irish host Waitsburg-Prescott Friday and visit Asotin Saturday for their final games of the regular season.
