At Pocatello, the Rigby High School boys basketball team outlasted Highland 67-63 in three overtimes for a conference win.

After leading 20-19 at halftime, Rigby had its deficit cut in the second half which ended 44-44 to prompt the first of three overtimes.

Rigby coach Justin Jones said the atmosphere was outstanding.

“Both teams just wouldn’t give,” Jones said. “We were down three or four in all the overtimes and just found a way.”

Tanoa Togiai had 23 points, Britton Berrett had 19 points and Wyatt Taylor added 15 points—including a dunk Jones said lifted the Trojans in one of the overtimes—for Rigby (10-2, 1-1), which hosts Bonneville on Thursday.
