Cascade Christian was determined to erase the sour taste of a 25-point loss to Nyssa in the championship game of its holiday tournament last Saturday.

Crater unfortunately was on the receiving end of the Challengers' intensity.

Senior forwards Colton Cochran and Wes Litton dominated as second-ranked Class 3A Cascade Christian blasted the 5A Comets, 80-49, at home Tuesday.

"We came out and established our inside game with Litton and Cochran," said Cascade Christian coach Brian Morse. "We tried to push the ball and got a lot of transition baskets."

Litton poured in 18 of his 22 points and Cochran had 16 of a career-high 27 in the first half as the Challengers zoomed to a 42-22 lead at the break.

Cascade shot 63 percent from the field (19-30) in the opening half and finished 33-of-56 for the game.

"That was definitely our best half of the season," said Morse. "We attacked the basket and didn't settle for jump shots."

Cochran and Litton also each pulled down eight rebounds.

The Challengers (6-1) used 17 steals to help fuel the fast-break offense.

Cascade Christian senior point guard Ben Joffer provided seven points and seven assists.
