PREP BOYS BASKETBALL: Counts tallies 28 as Timberlake topples Bonners Ferry

Print Article

BONNERS FERRY — Senior Colton Counts scored 15 of his game-high 28 points in the third quarter to lead the Timberlake Tigers to a 66-57 win over the Bonners Ferry Badgers in an Intermountain League game on Tuesday.

“He just used his length and finished at the hoop,” said Timberlake coach Michael Scott of Counts — a 6-foot-5 post — who scored nine points in the first quarter. “We got up by two at halftime and got another lead in the third, but they just didn’t have anyone that could handle his size. We did a good job of breaking their press in the first quarter.”

Jordan Hardy scored 17 points for Timberlake (7-11, 3-2 IML), which hosts Lakeland on Saturday.

Chris Sabin scored 18 points for Bonners Ferry (8-9, 2-2).

Day Day Higgins added 18 points, Talon Twoteeth 17 for Lakeside (11-8, 5-4 NSL).

Lakeside coach James Twoteeth said he liked “when we stopped shooting 3s, and started taking it to the basket. That’s what I’m trying to get them to do, attack the basket a little more.”

Kobe Banks scored 25 points for Clark Fork (2-10, 2-7), which suited up just five players.
