PENDLETON — The Buckaroos overcame early foul trouble to beat Baker 62-49 on Monday in a non-league game that had been rescheduled from earlier this season.

Haley Greb led the way with 17 points and every player that got in the game scored for Pendleton (5-5). Maureen Davies added 10 points, and Katie Bradt had a big contribution off the bench with seven points and a team-high nine rebounds.

Pendleton coach Kevin Porter said Bradt was seeing more time than usual because starting post Kalan McGlothan was in foul trouble the whole game and finished with just four points.

“It was a big team win, everybody that played scored and so I couldn’t be more happy about that,” Porter said.

Pendleton led 32-31 at halftime and opened the second half on a 10-0 run. From there Porter said it was all about maintaining their defensive pressure, and Baker (12-4) never pulled even the rest of the way. Kaeli Flanagan led the Bulldogs with 18 points.

Pendleton will remain in non-league play today for a game at La Grande that tips off at 7 p.m.
