At Idaho Falls, Jaxon Sorenson hit a 10-footer to give the Idaho Falls High School boys basketball team a 53-52 win over Thunder Ridge.

The teams played to a 20-20 tie at halftime before Idaho Falls grabbed a 38-33 lead after three quarters. Thunder Ridge made a run in the fourth, climbing out of a 10-point deficit in the final four minutes and taking a 52-51 lead. Idaho Falls coach Howard Hart said Sorenson got the ball with 10 seconds left in the game, went one on one full court, evaded four players and shot from the free throw line for the win.

"They were well prepared," Hart said of the Titans. "They haven’t played for a week because of all the weather last week. They were chomping to get out. You gotta have games like this whether they're conference or nonconference."

Sorenson had 19 points and four assists and Keynion Clark had 14 points, six rebounds and four assists for Idaho Falls (10-3), which hosts Rigby on Saturday. Lloyer Driggs had 20 points and Kayden Toldson had 15 points and six rebounds for Thunder Ridge (5-9), which plays Saturday at Blackfoot.
