Abshere hits first six 3-point shots to lead Blaine over Nooksack

Chase Abshere hit his first six 3-point attempts to help propel host Blaine to a 82-54 Northwest Conference win over Nooksack Valley on Friday.

Abshere finished with a game-high 20 points and was a key reason the Borderites led 40-13 at halftime. Coach Shaun Pile said Abshere had a good practice Thursday.

“We were hoping it would carry over,” Pile said. “He was lights out tonight, and it gave us a big cushion to carry the rest of the way.”

This was a rematch of a game on Dec. 2 that the Borderites lost 51-37 despite forcing 25 turnovers.

Lynden Christian 85, Meridian 54: The teams combined for 23 3-pointers, but host Lynden Christian hit 10 in the second half to run away with a Northwest Conference win. The Lyncs outrebounded Meridian 30-23, led by George DeJong with 10.

Mount Baker 70, Ferndale 68: The Mountaineers led by seven with two minutes to go and held off visiting Ferndale to earn a Northwest Conference win. The Golden Eagles made a 2-point shot with five seconds left but had no timeouts and couldn’t foul in time. TJ Bass led Mount Baker with 16 points and was 5 of 6 from the free-throw line.

Sehome 70, Sedro-Woolley 65: Visiting Sehome made 9 of 10 free throws in the fourth quarter to clinch a Northwest Conference win over the Cubs. Eddy Hochsprung finished with a game-high 20 points. Logan Lyall had 13 points and 10 rebounds.
