Eric Morse got the Cascade Christian boys basketball team going early and Davis Siliga kept them moving along Monday in the opening round of the Wells Fargo Advisors Christmas Classic.

Both players scored 19 points and the Challengers were never threatened after taking a double-digit lead early in a 64-47 victory over Regis at Cascade Christian High.

The ninth-ranked Challengers (2-2) will try to advance in the tournament with a victory over Mazama today at 7:30 p.m. Mazama beat Sutherlin on Monday.

Morse scored nine points in the first quarter to give the Challengers a 16-6 advantage at the end of the frame.

Siliga, who has struggled on offense thus far, turned in his best performance.

Siliga also had five assists, mostly off dribble-drive dump-off passes in the paint.

Eric Morse also pulled down eight rebounds. Alex Miller added 10 points and Addison Smith scored eight.
