“Two very good basketball teams competed very hard at a very high level,” Idaho Falls coach Howard Hart said. “There was never anybody with a lead that was like, ‘Oh my gosh.’”

PRESTON 54, SHELLEY 36: At Shelley, the Russets dropped their season opener to the returning 4A state champion, Preston, without one of their main players, Wyatt Remington.

Remington had to sit out of Wednesday’s season opener due to a one-game suspension that carried over from last postseason.

“Preston is good team,” Shelley coach Wally Foster said. “We got good shots, we just didn’t hit them. We did play a little nervous, and that’s because we had a lot of players getting their first varsity experience, but we’re going to get better. That two-point second quarter killed us, but it was nice to get the season going.”

Jake Wray had 11 points for Shelley (0-1)which plays Pocatello on Friday night in Holt Arena during day one of the Bengal Invitational.

Firth, which led 33-24 at halftime, had double-digit scoring from Ben Park (12 points), Colton Mecham (12 points) and Grayson Nelson (10 points).

“We rallied back within six, but didn’t quite have the gas in the tank to do it,” South Fremont coach Ryon Pope said. “Both teams hustled a lot. I saw some components that were positives and some parts I think we can build upon.”

Kyler Yancey had 13 points and Edwin Smith added 11 for South Fremont (0-1), which hosts Marsh Valley on Friday.
