If you didn’t know where these teams were seeded in the SIC, you might think this was the #4 vs. #5 match up when the game started. Vallivue’s 2-3 zone caused problems for Borah, who struggled to find and make open shots. But their size did continue to be a problem, generating offensive put backs for the bigger Lions.
Through out the first half Vallivue made the extra pass and got easy baskets inside from Lane Sale. At the break Borah was up 26-21.
The second half was a different story. Borah stepped up their defensive intensity, creating turnovers and tough shots that led to transition baskets. They got out to a 42-28 lead after the third quarter.
In the fourth, behind a strong effort from Vallivue’s Jacob Doty, the Falcons cut the lead to 8 with 2:00 to go. But that was as close as they would get as Borah would finish off the win 53-42.
