  • The fifth-ranked Cascade Christian boys basketball team finally returned home — not that the venue has mattered much.
    The Challengers downed Lakeview, 66-49, on Tuesday in their first home contest in six games.

    Against the Honkers in Southern Cascade Hybrid action, David Sellers went for 18 points and nine rebounds, Kenny Laws scored 12 points and Cody Coggins added 10 points and six assists for Cascade Christian.
    Seth Knox chipped in six points and nine rebounds and Aaron Cesaro added five points and seven rebounds for the Challengers, who led 31-27 at halftime.
    Better ball movement against Lakeview's zone helped Cascade Christian (20-2, 7-0 SCH) begin to pull away in the second half.
    "It was making that one extra pass and getting some good looks," Cascade Christian head coach Brian Morse said.
    Lane Hadley paced the Honkers (10-10, 4-3) with 16 points.
