At Moreland, senior Michael Ure had a block and a rebound that clinched a 54-52 win for the Ririe High School boys basketball team over Snake River in a battle of state ranked teams.

Ririe, ranked No. 2 in 2A in the Dec. 17 state media poll, led 25-17 at halftime and 44-35 after three quarters before Snake River, ranked No. 1 in 3A, rallied in the fourth quarter. Ririe coach Eric Torgerson said the Bulldogs made a ‘silly foul’ with 30 seconds left in the game, which allowed Snake River to cut it to 54-52. Ure was fouled later, missed his foul shot, and responded with the block and rebound to give the Bulldogs a regular season split with the Panthers.

“He did one better and got the rebound and the block,” Torgerson said. “Snake River wouldn’t go away. I’m really happy with my bench players tonight.”

Mitch Lindsay had 14 points and Benson Isom added 12 for Snake River (7-2), which hosts Soda Springs on Saturday.

Larz Sutton had 18 points, Ure had 16 and Stockton Johnson added 13 for Ririe (8-1), which hosts Sugar-Salem on Wednesday.

MADISON 64, SKYLINE 55: At Rexburg, the Bobcats got points from 10 players in a nonconference win over Skyline on ‘Throwback Night,’ which featured old Madison uniforms in a game played at Madison Junior High.

Both coaches said the game became a shootout by the second half. Madison scored 23 points in the third quarter and Skyline scored 23 in the fourth. The teams combined for 15 made 3-pointers.

“For them to hit nine 3s, they shot the lights out,” Madison coach Travis Schwab said. “Give credit to Skyline for staying in there and not giving up.”

Skyline coach Clint Cornish said the third quarter ultimately turned the tide.

“Obviously Madison, when you make mistakes and turnovers in the third quarter, they’re gonna make us hurt,” Cornish said. “They went on a really nice run.”

BONNEVILLE 49, LOWRY (NEV.) 31: At Boise, the Bees defeated Lowry, Nev., at Timberline to wrap up a 3-0 weekend at the Timber-Lion Tournament.

After leading 23-17 at halftime and 32-29 after three quarters, the Bees held Lowry to two points in the fourth quarter.

Bonneville coach Amy Wood said the Bees played this weekend without starter Brooklyn Cunningham, who tore her ACL last week. She said everyone has elevated their game since then and the Bees treated Timber-Lion like a ‘pre-state tournament.’

“We have the opportunity to figure out how to be mentally tough by that Saturday game,” Wood said. “We had a rough first half against Lowry. In the fourth quarter, these kids are winners. They just compete.”

Hillcrest trailed 23-20 at halftime, but turnovers and fouls took a toll in the second half.
