BEND — Jaiden Lemberger scored 19 points and Kalan McGlothan contributed a double-double with 12 points and 17 rebounds as the Pendleton Buckaroos won their third straight game with a 49-40 victory over Mountain View at the Les Schwab Holiday Hoopfest on Thursday.

“It’s baby steps,” Pendleton coach Kevin Porter said of the win streak. “We’re still not 100 percent healthy and we’re still trying to build that depth with our young players, but we’re just taking things one game at a time.”

Porter said the Buckaroos (4-5) took care of the ball well and finished with its lowest turnover total of the season. Lillianna Overcash led the Cougars (4-4) with 12 points.

HERMISTON 37, LAKE OSWEGO 35 — On Day 2 of the Nike Interstate Shootout at Lake Oswego High, the Hermiston Bulldogs faced the host school after falling into the consolation bracket with an opening loss.

Similar to yesterday, the Bulldogs started with a narrow lead and were up 9-8 over the Lakers. After trading off leads, Hermiston ended up on top with a late 3-pointer to clinch at 37-35 victory.

Lake Oswego fought its way back in the second quarter, and entered the half in control of the ball game. But after Hermiston’s low-scoring third quarter yesterday, the Bulldogs (2-8) weren’t going to let it happen again. They clawed back to hold a 25-24 lead going into the final quarter.

With only a few minutes left of play, Hermiston was up 34-32. The Lakers (2-5) cashed in a three points of their own to claim the lead as the clock winded down, but the Bulldogs dished out a 3-pointer of their own from senior Hannah Thompson to seal the deal.

For the second day in a row, junior Jordan Thomas led Hermiston with a game-high 19 points. For Lake Oswego, junior Katy Gilbert was the top point getter with 14.

Boys Basketball

LIBERTY CHRISTIAN (WA) 63, HEPPNER 56 — The Liberty Christian Patriots ran away with a win on the first day of the Irrigon Invite thanks to a 23-point performance from senior Nico Shupe III.

Shupe led the Patriots to a 63-56 win over the Heppner Mustangs.

Heppner was able to hold its own against the school from Richland, Wash., but a low scoring third quarter hurt the Mustangs chances at a comeback.

Along with Shupe, senior Riley Sullivan and freshman Grant McClure put up 12 points apiece.

Leading Heppner was junior Hunter Nichols with 11 points.

The Mustangs (3-6) got a mere 24-of-53 shots in while knocking down only two three’s. The Patriots (5-2) hit seven 3-pointers and were 26-of-56 from the field.

TROUT LAKE (WA) 61, HELIX 41 — At Helix, Trout Lake made the trip for the Bouncin’ Cancer basketball event and with it took a 61-41 victory on the first day.

The Grizzlies (0-9) have yet to catch a break during the start of their season, and have yet to pick up a win of their own.

Down by only by only five points at the half, Helix was within striking distance. But a lax third quarter gave the Mustangs (6-2) a chance to run away with the lead.

“We had a lapse and that was the difference of the game,” Helix head coach Zach Orem said.

Orem also commended the team’s fight despite letting the game get away in the second half. Leading the Grizzles was sophomore D’Artagnan Carlson with 14 points. Freshman Eli Sprenger chipped in 13 for Helix.
