As of Tuesday, January 3, 2017
KOOSKIA The Clearwater Valley boys needed a win to keep pace with the mid-tier teams in the Whitepine League but started their first game after Christmas ice cold.
The Genesee boys ramped a 5-0 early lead up to an 11-point differential on the way to a 58-40 victory last Thursday, Dec. 29.
Playing urgently during the third and fourth quarters, the Rams cut Genesee’s lead down to five, 42-37, with four minutes remaining.
But Genesee re-opened the gap to 10 with a series of foul shots, and held the Rams reserves all but scoreless.
Kamm Mangun scored 17 and Mitch Morrow scored 10 for CV.
Next, the Rams (3-4, 1-3 WPL) are due to play the unbeaten league leader at noon on Saturday, Jan. 7, at Lapwai.
