  • The Cascade Christian boys basketball team defeated Brookings-Harbor, 57-51, in nonleague action at Cascade Christian High on Saturday, avenging an earlier loss to the Bruins.
    Senior Seth Knox gave the Challengers a big boost with 12 points on 6 of 7 shooting with seven rebounds, seven assists and two blocks.
    David Sellers (12 points) and Aaron Cesaro (nine points, seven rebounds) pounded the paint against Class 4A Brookings (10-3), which entered the fourth quarter tied at 37 with 3A Cascade Christian (12-2).
    Unlike the last time the two teams met — when the Bruins won 66-44 in their tournament on Dec. 20 — the Challengers managed to dominate inside while rotating their big men.
    "We never played them both inside," Cascade Christian head coach Brian Morse said. "Brookings is a quick 3-point shooting team, so by doing that we could match up with the guards better defensively and keep our big guys fresh."
    Dalton Palmer and Christian Kammerzell had nine points each, including seven in the final period for Kammerzell, and point guard Cody Coggins added six points and seven assists without a turnover.
    Coggins knocked down 5 of 7 free throws in the fourth as the Bruins were forced to foul late.
    Knox's contributions were key, Morse said.
    "He was just very steady for a second night in a row," Morse said. "He really does a lot of silent things that people don't see, but stat-wise, he was very efficient. ... He is really coming into his own."
    Justin Murray led Brookings with 18 points.
