Cascade Christian takes SCH title with victory over Honkers

February 06, 2013

LAKEVIEW — Cascade Christian received double-doubles from Alex Miller and David Sellers and secured its second consecutive Southern Cascade Hybrid boys basketball championship with a 64-42 victory over Lakeview Tuesday.

Miller, a senior point guard, tallied 16 points to go with 10 assists and seven rebounds.

"(Miller) was real good attacking the baseline against their zone and found the open guy," said Cascade Christian coach Brian Morse.

Sellers was the beneficiary of a number of Miller's passes. The 6-foot-7 junior post hit all seven field goal attempts for 14 points and pulled down 12 rebounds.

"(Sellers) was real aggressive taking his shot strong," said Morse, "and he got the big board when we needed it."

The fifth-ranked Challengers (18-5, 7-0 SCH) jumped out to a 22-13 first-quarter lead.

"We had a lot of energy from the start," said Morse. "The defense was intense and we were patient offensively."
