BOYS’ BASKETBALL

Knights rally past Greyhounds in boys’ action

SPOKANE — Pullman took a 10-point lead in the third quarter after trailing by double digits at halftime, but an 18-2 spurt from Great Northern League foe East Valley of Spokane did the Greyhounds in in a 59-53 loss Wednesday in boys’ basketball play.

Pullman (9-9, 5-5) “just missed a lot of shots in the fourth quarter,” coach Craig Brantner said, and the Knights (8-11, 5-6) took advantage.

“We kinda ran out of gas,” Brantner said.

Peyton Rogers hit four 3s and led the Hounds with 14 points. Steven Burkett had 12 and Evan Strong kicked in 10 and seven assists.

Brantner credited Rogers’ sharpshooting and his team’s ball movement as key in his team’s second-half rally.

EV was led by Tyrell Brown (18 points) and Reece Rasmussen (17).
