At Pocatello, the Idaho Falls High School girls basketball team earned its first win of the season Tuesday night, beating Pocatello 63-55 behind Olivia Hillam’s 22 points.

Kennedy Burton added 18 points during the win, as Tigers coach Dallan Parker said free throws — an issue for the Tigers throughout their 2017-18 campaign — were the difference maker. Pocatello committed 30 fouls during the loss. Three players fouled out.

Burton also had four 3-pointers during the win.

“Everyone clicked and I’m really happy for these girls,” Parker said. “They deserve all the credit.”

Up 24-22 at halftime, the Tigers used a 26-point fourth quarter to earn their first win since Feb. 4, 2017.

Idaho Falls (1-18, 1-9 4A District 5-6) hosts Bonneville on Thursday for its last game of the season.

Blackfoot’s Tenleigh Smith led all scorers with 23 points, as Erin Jenkins had 19 points for Skyline.

Skyline coach Ty Keck said turnovers in the second quarter and fastbreak opportunities by Blackfoot helped lend the Grizzlies their sixth loss in seven games.

“We just had way too many turnovers and not enough rebounding late,” Keck said.

Blackfoot has won four consecutive and moves to 8-2 in conference play.

After trailing 31-25 at halftime, the Bulldogs outscored the Warriors 15-3 in the third quarter.

“We played them tough in the first half but our defense wasn’t the best,” Yadon said. “We just had too many turnovers in the third that lead to some easy baskets.”

High school boys basketball

WEST JEFFERSON 58, BUTTE COUNTY: 44: At Terreton, Dalton Robins came off the bench for the Panthers and scored 13 points in his best performance this season, West Jefferson coach Dave Hadley said, Tuesday.

What also helped West Jefferson beat Butte County, Hadley said, was his assistant coaches offensive scheme to beat the Pirates’ 2-3 zone early in the third quarter.

Originally up three in the third, the Panthers went on a 15-3 run after the coaching adjustment to win their third consecutive game.

West Jefferson outscored Butte County 21-9 in the third quarter.

“I’m just really proud of my boys tonight,” Hadley said. “Dalton came off the bench and shot with confidence.”

Butte County was led by Bridger Hansen’s 14 points.

Down one with a minute and half to go in regulation, the Warriors stalled before missing a game-winning basket from about 15 feet out. Coach Jesse Adams complimented his team’s offensive execution and shooting, but said rebounding is a struggle for Watersprings.

“We gotta get strong on the boards,” Adams said. “We were down after the first but really really started to pick it up.”
