High School Basketball

Creating greats shots and playing sound defense are the two staples of this team

The Mount Baker boys basketball team had one of its best defensive games of the young season in its 63-41 victory over Oak Harbor Tuesday at Mount Baker High School.

The Mountaineers led the entire game and forced Oak Harbor into turnovers which led to easy transition points. Mount Baker coach Rob Gray said his team’s defense helped limit their oppositions chances and eventually allowed the Mountaineers to coast to a win in the fourth quarter.

The Mount Baker offense also stood out but not for its flashiness. The leading scorer was Kaleb Bass with 12 points but three other Mountaineer players finished with eight points.

“We share the ball well and have reasonably skilled offensive players,” Gray said. “One of the things we talk about it creating great shots for each other and we did that tonight.”
