Miksovsky's big game key in Mariners' win

THE BELLINGHAM HERALDDecember 30, 2013 

Evan Miksovsky notched a triple-double to lead Sehome's boys' basketball team to an 80-53 win over Mount Baker on Monday, Dec. 30, at Sehome High School. Miksovsky finished with 12 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists for his team.

"We got up big in the first quarter and Evan's play was part of that," Sehome coach A.J. LaBree said in a phone interview. "He does a little bit of everything for you."

Sehome led Mount Baker 29-9 after the first quarter and was up by more than 20 points at halftime.

"At that point you either let the other team back in, or you win the third quarter and that slams the door," LaBree said he told his players. "The guys made some plays and slammed the door."

Altogether, five Sehome players scored in double digits. Langston Engle had 11 points, Tanner Clark had 18, Leif Anderson added 14 and Duncan James scored 10 to go with Miksovsky's big night.

Sehome's next game is at 7:15 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 2, at home against Anacortes.
