Update: The HRV boys lost their final home game of the season Friday night to Mountain View by a score of 60-47. The Eagles' record dropped to 2-11 with one game remaining.
Something was missing from the HRV boys basketball team in Thursday’s home match-up with Pendleton.
The Buckaroos (8-4, Intermountain Conference) simply sucked the life out of the Eagles (2-10 IMC) in the first two-and-a-half quarters, and finished them off by a score of 63-45.
HRV barely had an answer for the run-and-gun Pendleton attack, and after leading 5-4 early, gave up 20 unanswered points to fall behind 24-6 mid-way through the second quarter.
Pendleton continued to dominate on both halves of the court, swatting away every HRV shot attempt in the lane and earning easy lay-ups on the opposite end.
Four Buckaroos — led by the IMC’s second leading scorer, Marcus Buckley —scored in double figures, while just one HRV player (Andy Holmson, 10 points) managed to reach double digits.
Buckley tallied a game-high 12, and was followed by Alfie Wilson and Jared Short with 11 each, and 7-foot, 7-inch center Justin Neuss with 10.
Senior Todd Shypertt poured in nine points and senior Sam Murillo had seven, but the Eagles’ offense appeared stagnant — almost lifeless — for most of the game.
Phil Vesel’s crew tried to bounce back Friday night at home against fifth-place Mountain View (results not available at press time), and will finish the season on Friday in Hermiston against the second-place Bulldogs.
