  • PHOENIX — Phoenix opened a big lead, but errant free-throw shooting in the fourth quarter enabled Hidden Valley to make a game of it in Skyline Conference boys basketball Friday.
    The Pirates missed 10 foul shots in the final stanza before nailing down a 48-43 victory.

    After Hidden Valley made a 3 with five seconds left to pull within three, Phoenix inbounded to Tyson Morris, who was fouled and made two free throws with 2.2 seconds showing.
    The Pirates' Jason Wyncoop had 15 points and 13 rebounds.
    Kody Garrison scored 11 for Hidden Valley.
