  • PHOENIX — Things looked just fine for the Phoenix boys basketball team on Tuesday.
    Then came the second half, and a nightmarish third quarter.
    Coming off of an upset victory over Mazama last Friday and leading Henley by four points at halftime, the Pirates exited intermission anemic and were dealt a 49-39 loss in Skyline Conference action.
    The third quarter did Phoenix in. In it, the Hornets went on a 16-1 run before Dakota Kostios knocked down a 3, marking the Pirates' lone field goal of the momentum-shifting period.
    "We played well in the first half, we played our game, our tempo," Phoenix head coach Glenn Johannes said. "I told them at halftime to be ready for them to push the ball a little more and don't get caught up in the rat race. Our youth got the best of us and we did."
    The Pirates made some corrections in the fourth but, by then, it was too late.
    "We played three really good quarters and one really bad one," Johannes said.
    Tyson Morris had 20 points and Jason Wyncoop added 10 points for Phoenix (8-11, 2-5 Sky).
    Josh Overstreet paced Henley (14-5, 4-3) with 14 points.
