La Grande shot 44 percent from the field, 23-of-52, while limiting Baker to just 29 percent, 17-of-58.

Kevin Attila scored four points to help La Grande build a 13-9 lead after one quarter.

Then, after Baker pulled within 17-14 in the second quarter, Brad Townsend scored five points in a 7-0 La Grande run to build the deficit back to 24-14 with 5:26 left in the half.

Six points from Kennan Richards, three from Jesse Brown and a basket from Derek Blankenship pulled Baker back to within 26-25. La Grande then scored the final five points of the half to lead 31-25 at halftime.
