HS Roundup:Hillcrest boys rally for 44-40 win at I.F.

At Idaho Falls, the Hillcrest High School boys basketball team utilized a late-game surge to overcome a 12-point deficit and beat the Tigers 44-40 on Thursday.

Derek Marlowe had five 3-pointers for the Knights, who outscored the Tigers 31-15 in the second half.

Trailing most of the game, Hillcrest took the lead with about 1:15 left to play to give the Knights their sixth-straight win. The Tigers led 25-13 at halftime before surrendering 20 points in the third quarter.

Hillcrest remains unbeaten at 6-0.

“Hillcrest is a good basketball team, and we fought through that run late pretty well, but they got some good looks down the stretch,” Idaho Falls coach Howard Hart said.

Marlowe had 18 points for Hillcrest, which plays in the Star Valley tournament in Wyoming this weekend. Andrew Gregersen had nine points to lead Idaho Falls (1-3), which plays Saturday at Rigby.
