Balanced attack helps Bellingham boys beat Lakewood

The Bellingham boys basketball team held Lakewood to just 12 points in the second half to earn a 61-39 Northwest Conference win on Saturday.

Coach Brad McKay said he was pleased with his team’s defense and its balanced offense.

Iyan Manju provided energy off the bench with 10 points.

King’s 51, Lynden 42 – Gonzaga-commit Corey Kispert rattled off 30 points to help topple Lynden. Kispert was 8 for 12 from the field and had seven rebounds. Lynden’s leading scorer was Clayton Whitman, who had 13 points.

Mount Baker 77, La Conner 55 – Five players scored in double figures for Mount Baker as the Mountaineers extended their winning streak to four games. Kaleb Bass led the way with 15 points and his cousin TJ Bass added 11 points.
