At Jerome, the Rigby High School girls basketball team had an impressive defensive showing in a 52-15 win over host team Jerome to win the Jerry Callen Memorial Girls Basketball Tournament on Friday afternoon.

After tight wins over Bishop Kelly and Kimberly on Thursday, Rigby coach Troy Shippen said the Trojans wanted to play stronger defense in the title game.

“They just played great man defense,” Shippen said.

Shippen added that Jerome zoned Rigby most of the time and tried full court press. The result was seven made 3-pointers by the Trojans.

Ruby Murdock had 12 points (all from 3s) while Kenadee French and Mateya Mobley had 10 points each for Rigby (11-4), which plays Thursday at Blackfoot.

After taking a 13-10 lead after the first quarter, the Panthers held the Huskies to single digit scoring the final three quarters.

SUGAR-SALEM 67, RIDGELINE 54: At Star Valley, Wyo., three Diggers finished with double-figure scoring in a win over Ridgeline, Utah, on day two of the Star Valley Shootout.

Sugar-Salem coach Crystal Dayley said Ridgeline, a 4A school in Utah, entered the game 7-1 and with wins by impressive margins. She said she didn’t realize until the game was about to start that the Riverhawks include Halle Livingston, a former multisport athlete who previously attended Rigby before moving to Utah prior to the 2017-18 school year.

“I thought we put together four really good quarters,” Dayley said. “They’re a very high quality basketball team. They’re bigger than us. I was super happy with how we played.”

“I really feel like a lot of it was on me,” South Fremont coach Ryan Erikson said. “I didn’t have the girls prepared for their defense. We didn’t get the best shots. Parma’s a good team. They’re gonna go to state and they’ve got a chance to win the whole thing.”

SKYLINE 65, EMMETT 49: At Fruitland, Skyline made second half adjustments to respond to Emmett’s 3-point shooting in a nonconference win.

Emmett led 31-29 at halftime, making eight of its 11 total 3-pointers in the first half. The Grizzlies held the Huskies to four points in the third quarter—one free throw and one 3-pointer.

“That’s the most 3s I’ve seen in the first half since I’ve been coaching,” Skyline coach Clint Cornish said. “They were backing up and they kept hitting them. We did a real good job in the third quarter, getting hands up and making sure their shooters couldn’t keep hitting 3s.”

Jo Bates had 14 points, Kadin Pabts had 11 and Cruz Taylor added 10 for Skyline (5-3), which returns to east Idaho to play tonight at Madison.
