Despite 16 points apiece from Blake Buchanan and Benny Kitchel, Moscow boys’ basketball fell to nonleague foe Clarkston on Friday night at Bear Den.

Buchanan, a freshman, had nine rebounds and Jamari Simpson, a sophomore, had four assists.

“Blake handled the situation really well,” Moscow coach Josh Uhrig said. “Jamari did a great job, too.

“That’s a great learning experience for those freshmen and sophomores going against a team like Clarkston.”

Moscow was playing without star post Ben Postell.

“I saw some good things,” Uhrig said. “We got down 22 late in the third and actually got it down to nine with three minutes to go.

“We had some young guys do some really good stuff.”
