Baker boys basketball coach Joel Richardson had some very short comments following the Bulldogs’ 79-48 nonleague victory over Vale Saturday at BHS.

“All I have to say is that was pretty basketball,” Richardson said.

“The kids shared the ball well, and did what we asked them to do.”

Baker (13-6) spotted Vale (3-17) a 3-0 lead then ran off 12 straight points to lead 12-3 midway through the first quarter.

Braden Phillips and Dane Bachman each hit a three-point basket, and Mason Cline, Trent Taylor and Dillon Blankenship each added two-pointers. Baker led 20-7 after one period.

The Bulldogs then built their largest lead of the first half, 31-12, midway through the second quarter.

That’s when Vale made its final run at a comeback.

Behind three three-pointers from Logan Skerjanec, the Vikings ran off 10 unanswered points to pull within 31-22 with 2:08 left in the half.

Baker then rebounded to lead 33-22 at halftime.

Baker then outscored the Vikings 46-26 in the second half.

Phillips led four Bulldogs in double figures with 19 points. Blankenship added 17, Bachman 13, and Cline 11.

Baker won the rebounding battle 37-26. Blankenship had nine boards and Phillips seven. Blankenship added four assists and Ben Baxter three.

Baker shot 54 percent from the field (28-of-53).

Baker closes out its home season Friday when they host La Grande in a Greater Oregon League contest.
