  • Alex Young erupted for 28 points and Phoenix shook off a tough loss the night before for a 65-58 nonconference boys basketball win over host Cascade Christian Saturday.
    The game featured two top-five ranked teams: Phoenix (18-4) is the No. 3 Class 4A team, and Cascade Christian (16-6) is No. 5 in 3A.
    The Pirates had suffered a 70-52 setback to Skyline Conference rival North Valley on Friday but responded against the Challengers, in part because of a big third quarter.
    Phoenix outscored Cascade Christian 21-6 in the period to take a 51-39 lead into the fourth.
    "We did not play well defensively in the first half, and in the third quarter we played very well," said Pirates coach Glenn Johannes. "We got a lot of production out of our bench and our role players and our bigs."
    Tim Keith, Dalton Richarsdon and Luke Brown combined for 17 points, and Travis Campoy played solid defense on Cascade Christian point guard Davis Siliga.
    "I was happy with the way the kids responded after another tough loss to North Valley," said Johannes, whose team dropped both league matchups to the Knights.
    The Pirates shot 50 percent from the field (26 of 52).
    Young, who was 11 of 16 on field goals, added six rebounds, three steals and an assist to his statistical line. Tyler Dungannon scored 13 points.
    Cascade Christian, which outrebounded Phoenix 31-25, got 19 points from Alex Miller and 14 points from Eric Morse. Miller was 8 of 11 from the field and added five rebounds. David Sellers led the Challengers with eight boards.
