PENDLETON — The Pendleton boys basketball team had a busy week last week, playing three games over a four-day span. Senior guard Wyatt Morris was a big reason for the Buckaroos winning in all three of those games, as the senior guard averaged 13.7 points per game over that span.

For his efforts, Morris has been selected as the East Oregonian’s Athlete of the Week for the week of Jan. 23-28.
