At Sugar City, the Ririe High School boys basketball team got 25 points from point guard Larz Sutton in a 61-51 win over Sugar-Salem.

Michael Ure added 18 points for Ririe, which trailed just once during the first half of Wednesday’s matchup that pitted two of the best 3A and 2A programs against one another.

Sugar-Salem got in foul trouble early, playing in the double-bonus almost the entire first half.

Ririe would then hold in the second half, outscoring Sugar-Salem 26-21 in the final two quarters.

Sugar-Salem coach Shawn Freeman said his team is still adapting to their roles and playing together after missing early-season practice due to the Diggers’ football championship late into November.

“We’ll make adjustments,” Freeman said. “It wasn’t a terrible game for us. We missed a lot of bunnies. They outplayed us and outperformed us, though … it was a good measuring stick for us.”

Hadley Miller scored 15 points for Sugar-Salem (3-1), which plays Friday at Logan (Utah). Ririe (4-0) plays Friday at West Side.

“I thought we played our best half of the year in the first half, for sure,” West Jefferson coach Dave Hadley said. “The third quarter, it’s kinda been the story of our first three games. We just have to learn through those times a little bit better. I think we can get there certainly.”

"The first half, they hit four threes but then 0-9 from beyond the arc," Watersprings coach Scott Moe said. "We went 6-7 in the second half. It was a great effort."

The Pirates fell flat in the second half, struggling to find more shot opportunities. Brady McAffee finished with 18 for Butte County. 

"We battled pretty good in the first half, they just got us in that fourth quarter," Butte County coach Radley Gamett said. "It was quite the turn of events. We didn't get as many as shot attempts."
