ST. JOHN — The Touchet boys basketball team’s defense propelled the Indians to a 67-20 win against St. John-Endicott on Saturday.

Touchet also downed Garfield-Palouse 58-39 on Friday.

Against the Eagles, Touchet forced 18 turnovers and jumped out to a 23-3 lead after the first quarter. Indians coach Tim McKeown said Touchet’s man-to-man defense did most of the damage, as he only employed a zone look while the second string was on the floor.

“We played really good defense and (turned) some blocked shots into steals and some steals into fast breaks,” McKeown said. “We were in the right place at the right time anticipating and that’s what we wanted to do.”

Ruben Butler finished with a game-high 22 points for Touchet. Zach Carson also added 13 points.
