  • Behind a dominant effort from start to finish, the Diamond boys’ basketball team cruised to seventh place with a 62-26 shelling of Thomas Jefferson at the Pierce City Tournament on Wednesday.
    The Wildcat defense held the Cavaliers to just nine first half points — six in the first quarter and three in the second — while building a 35-9 halftime lead. With recent inclement weather keeping the Wildcats off the floor of late, coach Brandon Rabel said it was nice to see his team play so well despite the layoff.
    “We really haven’t got to practice much lately, so this was an opportunity to try to play a lot of guys to see if we could execute, and I thought we did a really good job tonight,” Rabel said. “We tried to come out and be consistent, and I think we really improved. I think that’s all you can ask for at this point in the season.”
    Brodie Bien led the Wildcats with 15 points, while Evan Moreland turned in 11, Brandon Russow nine, Jerimiah Bridgewater seven, Jordan Divine six, Triston Shepherd six, Carter Prewitt five and Michael Bray four.
    Diamond (2-2) takes on Seneca at 7:30 p.m. today at the Seneca Tournament.
