Nooksack Valley boys basketball team finds its defensive identity

The Nooksack Valley High School boys basketball team found its identity on defense against Blaine to earn a 51-37 win Friday at home.

“We figured out who we’re going to be on defense,” coach Rich Skillman said. “A team that is going to come and battle every day and be ready to play.”

The Pioneers allowed just six points in the fourth quarter while scoring 18.

Casey Bauman led the way with 14 points, and the Pioneers outrebounded the Borderites 47-30.

Overlake 69, Meridian 59 – Simran Parmar’s 30 points weren’t enough to help Meridian take care of Overlake. After going down 8-0 to start the game, Parmar jump-started the Trojans, who eventually took a two-point lead heading into the fourth quarter. Meridian was outscored 19-8 in the fourth quarter as fatigue set in.
