  • Micah Neufeld hit all eight of his free throw attempts in the fourth quarter on his way to a team-high 20 points, helping Rogue Valley Adventist hold on to beat Powers, 63-58, in the first round of the Class 1A boys basketball playoffs Wednesday at the Rogue Valley Adventist High gym.
    Neufeld drained 12 of 12 free throw attempts overall, and Calub Allen had 18 points, 14 rebounds and five steals for the Red Tail Hawks (25-4), who travel east to face Crane on Saturday in a second-round contest. The winner of that advances to the eight-team state tournament in Baker.
    "We're really happy," Rogue Valley Adventist head coach Mike Glasgow said. "We have the opportunity to go to Baker, so it's kind of cool. One more game."
    Newton Allred scored 28 points and Cameron Perreault 15 to pace the Cruisers (11-10), who were held to 16 points in the first half. The 6-foot-7 Allred led everyone in scoring but needed 29 shots to do so as RV Adventist 6-4 post Jesse Gilley played tough interior defense.
    "We were just gutsy," Glasgow said. "Gilley fouled out, but he did a pretty good job."
    Gilley and Jonathon Alvarez added nine points apiece for the Red Tail Hawks, who have won 14 of their last 15 games.
    POWERS (58) — McNely 4, Morgan 0, Martinez 6, Perreault 15, Allred 28, MacKensen 0, Stallard 5, MacDonald 0. Totals: 21-52 11-15 58.
    ROGUE VALLEY ADVENTIST (63) — Petray 0, Neufeld 20, James 1, Alvarez 9, Gilley 9, Allen 18, Pirelli 6. Totals: 21-49 20-28 63.
    Powers 5 11 14 28 — 58
    RV Adventist 12 11 16 24 — 63
    3-point goals — Powers 5 (Perreault 3, Allred 1, Stallard 1), RV Adventist 1 (Alvarez 1). Fouled out — Gilley, Allred.
