The Salmon River basketball boys were doubled up by Tri-Valley 51-25 on Jan. 8, but rebounded with wins over Cascade (61-31) and Horseshoe Bend (59-46) to stay in the hunt for a Long Pin Conference title.
SRHS got 27 points from Canyon Harper and 17 from Ethan Shepherd against Horseshoe Bend. Harper and Isaac Hofflander scored 17 apiece against Cascade, with Randy McClure adding 13. But without Harper in the lineup against Tri-Valley, SRHS had none score double-digits.
