ELGIN, Ore. — The Weston-McEwen High School boys basketball team battled through early foul trouble; to eventually prevail at Elgin 58-44, here Saturday night.

The Elgin Huskies shot terribly from the free-throw line, hitting only 10- of-29 attempts. The TigerScots won the game at the charity stripe. W-M made 13-of-17 shots from the line, a much higher percentage (70 percent).

Jarrett Bosquet finished with 14 points and seven boards. Linton McAllister contributed 15 points and Chuck Simmons added 10.

W-M beat Heppner 49-48 at home Friday night, after making only 1-of-7 free throws in the fourth.

“We are normally a good free-throw shooting team,” TigerScot coach Brian Pickard said. “So it wasn’t good to see the trouble with free throws in the fourth. We really needed to execute better offensively and defensively in that quarter.”

Cedric Hall had a team-high four steals and four assists in the nail-biter.

Top scorer was L. McAllister with 11 and Lance Thacker with 10.

The TigerScots are ranked no. 8 in state (15-5 overall, 9-3 BMC) and travel to Union Tuesday for a 7:30 p.m. tip.
