WILSONVILLE — A bit more attention to detail went a long way for the Crater boys basketball team.

WILSONVILLE — A bit more attention to detail went a long way for the Crater boys basketball team.

The Comets controlled the boards in the second half and turned a one-point halftime deficit into a 62-54 victory over Black Hills (Wash.) in the opening round of the Wilsonville Tournament on Thursday.

After being outrebounded 28-18 in the first half, Crater (6-3) had 15 rebounds to just five for Black Hills as Crater took control in the third quarter.

"We were giving up a lot of second-chance points," Crater coach Troy McNichols said. "That's the name of the game. We keep telling the kids, 'You have to rebound. What's the point to playing defense if you're not going to rebound.' The little things make the difference between good teams and great teams."

Crater received solid play from its guards and was led in scoring by Bryce Peila with 15. He also added eight rebounds and eight steals.

"He was the catalyst tonight getting the break going," McNichols said of Peila. "It's an added bonus anytime he gets up there in scoring."

Nick Brothers added 14 points, five steals and four assists, Drew Runberg had 12 points and 15 rebounds, while Josh Lokeno totaled 11 points and seven assists as the Comets got to the basket more effectively in the second half on the offensive end.

Crater also limited the dribble penetration of Black Hills in the second half and turned the one-point halftime deficit into a five-point lead heading into the fourth quarter.

David Meade led Black Hills with 15 points. Crater plays Crescent Valley or Pendleton tonight at 6:30 p.m.
