Zakk Carlson drives through Rainier defense.

"I thought it was a good game," Coach Rob Garrett said. "It took us a bit to get going as we were working on a new defense and had a poor shooting night, especially early. With that said the guys did a much better job about being patient and getting better looks on offense. I thought we had great ball movement, which was getting us wide-open looks. If we are able to consistently do that, it's jut a matter of time until we start heating up. I thought our guys did a great job of talking on defense which is something we have worked on a lot lately.

"Continuing with the theme of celebrating the oftentimes over looked parts of the game," he continued, "Jacob Johnson had eight assists, four steals, and zero turnovers. That's an incredible night regardless of who you're playing."

Johnson also scored nine points. Kyler Sause led the team with 23 points, five rebounds and two blocks. Zakk Carlson had 22 points, six rebounds, and five assists. Parker Leitz added six points. Cooper Carlson and Gage Robinson contributed four points apiece. Jayden Stoddard had three points and Grant Wilson finished the game with two points.
