Defending state champion Jordan Valley laid an early claim that theyre again the team to beat during a 73-44 victory Thursday over Burnt River in the District 4-1A tournament.

Center Jeff Anderson, a 6-5 senior with tremendous leaping ability, led the Mustangs with 25 points, including three thunderous first-half dunks. Fans on both sides seemed impressed with his effort, cheering each dunk louder than the last.

It was pretty fun out there, he said. We may have been a little sloppy at times, but it was a good first-round win. Were going out to play them just one game at a time.

Mustangs coach Dan Johnson let his bench play much of the second half. Junior Pat Conro had 10 points, as did freshman post player Pat Anderson. Junior Shaun Lequerica had three treys for nine points, while Gracian Uhalde chipped in with seven points.

Senior Will Bradford was the top scorer for the Bulls with 15 points. Another senior, Arron Bradford, was next with nine points. That pair was followed by junior Cody Anderson and junior Parker Schnetz, who contributed six points apiece. Other Bulls into the scoring column were junior David Siddoway with three points; sophomore Craig Siddoway and freshman David Reilly, who scored two points each; and junior Diego Lima, who had one point.

At halftime, I just told them to keep their heads up, have fun and play basketball, Bulls Coach Brian Bradford said afterward. Jordan Valley is a good team, and we just couldnt deny them.

The Mustangs will face Prairie City tonight at 8:45. The Bulls played Spray this morning in the consolation bracket.
