Marco Vela was second at 138, Jesse Hamann fourth at 113, Elijah Banister fourth at 120, Peter Baker fourth at 170, James AhHee fifth at 120, Will Goodwin fifth at 285, and Dylan Feldmeier sixth at 160.

BHS GIRLS BASKETBALL: Bulldogs competing at Parma tournament:


PARMA — Baker dropped its opening game at the Parma Panther Girls Holiday Invitational girls basketball tournament Monday.

The Bulldogs fell 42-24 to Soda Springs, Idaho.

“It was our worst game of the season,” said Baker coach Jenny Mowe-Joseph.

Brie Sand led the Bulldogs with nine points. Michelle Freese added five, Cecylee Bruce four, Kylie Severson three, Emily Tatlock two and Gracie Huggins one.


PARMA — Michelle Freese and Brie Sand combined for 30 points Tuesday lead Baker to a 36-30 victory over Elgin in the consolation semifinals at the Parma Panther Girls Holiday Invitational basketball tournament at Parma.

The Bulldogs will meet Emmett in the consolation title game today at noon PST. Baker has lost twice to the Huskies this season, 44-39 and 42-35.

“Hopefully the third time is the charm,” said Baker coach Jenny Mowe-Joseph. “The girls showed some great composure down the final stretch, and we shot the ball better.”

Mowe-Joseph said another key was the defensive play of Whitney Lemmon before she fouled out in the fourth quarter.

“Whit put up a great defensive battle before fouling out,” the Baker coach said.

Freese led Baker with 16 points. Sand added 14. Cecylee Bruce, Emily Tatlock and Summer Phillips each added two points. 

BHS BOYS BASKETBALL: Bulldogs in action at Sisters tournament

Baker’s season-long inconsistency bit the Bulldogs again Monday against Seaside at the Sisters boys basketball tournament.

Shaky defense and poor free throw shooting hurt the Bulldogs in a 64-57 loss to Seaside.

“Our inconsistent ways continue,” said Baker coach Joel Richardson.

“And, we’re still shooting poorly at the free throw line.”

Baker shot just 10-of-22 from the line, while Seaside was 27-of-36.

“We shoot less than 50 percent from the line and they shoot 27 of 36. In a 7-point game that makes the difference,” Richardson said.

“We just can’t afford to be inconsistent. We play really, really well for one quarter then we don’t in the next.”

Baker led 18-11 after one period, but that was the high point for the Bulldogs.

“Our defense was basically non-existent in the second, third and fourth quarters,” Richardson said.

Seaside outscored the Bulldogs 36-25 in the second half. Twenty-three of Seaside’s points came from the free throw line.

“We just have to do a better job on defense as a group,” Richardson said.

“It’s not an individual thing. It involves everybody.”

Baker outrebounded Seaside 24-19 and committed just 11 turnovers. The Bulldogs shot 44 percent from the field.

Logan Sand led Baker with 24 points. Kyle Srack added 10.

How does an opposing player make just one field goal but still score a game-high 19 points?

That player makes 16-of-20 free throws to go with one basket.

Madras’ Jered Pichette did just that Tuesday to lead the White Buffaloes to a 63-54 victory over Baker at the Sisters boys basketball tournament.

“One guy goes to the line 20 times in a game. Unbelievable,” said Baker coach Joel Richardson.

“He’s a crafty point guard. He’s their go-to guy. I thought we did a great job of stopping him from the perimeter. But he did a god job going to the basket and ended up shooting a lot of two-shot fouls.”

Baker fell behind 46-28 in the third quarter, but managed to cut the deficit to 57-50 with about two minutes left in the game before running out of steam.

The Bulldogs were outscored 18-7 in the third period.

“We had a very bad third quarter,” Richardson said.

“I began clearing my bench and ironically the guys off the bench were the ones who got us back into the game.

“It was very enlightening to see our reinforcements picking up the slack in the fourth quarter,” Richardson said.

Clay LeaMaster led Baker with 15 points, including nine in the fourth period.

Richardson said the Bulldogs just have to “put their money where their mouth is.”

“We’ve got to learn how to play on the road; how to win on the road,” he said. “We have to learn from these games.”

Baker will play for seventh place at 10 a.m. today.

BHS BOYS BASKETBALL: Bulldogs show too much Mr. Hyde in loss to Bishop Kelly

Joel Richardson likens his Baker boys basketball team to a set of twins.

One is a great kid — the sort who hits the game-winning shot and is valedictorian besides.

The other twin, well, he “sort of goes crazy sometimes,” Richardson said.

That troublesome twin was in control a bit too much Monday night during the Bulldogs’ 61-52 loss at Bishop Kelly, a private school in Boise.

The third quarter was both the key period in the game, and a microcosm of Baker’s dual personality.

BHS BOYS BASKETBALL: Kuna nips Bulldogs

Baker’s Clay LeaMaster made a key three-pointer Friday at Kuna, Idaho.

Unfortunately for the Bulldogs, Kuna’s star, Jacob Johnson, did the same thing less than 30 seconds later.

LeaMaster’s basket gave Baker a 52-50 lead with about two minutes left in the game.

On the next possession Johnson, a 6-foot-6 junior who led all scorers with 26 points, answered LeaMaster’s three-pointer, giving Kuna a lead it would not relinquish.

After a Baker miss, Kuna held the ball, forcing Baker to foul. The Kavemen made enough free throws to secure a 58-54 win.

Baker played very similar games Monday and Tuesday against Pendleton and Emmett.

The Bulldogs played their nonleague girls basketball opponents close most of the game each night, then faded in the fourth quarter.

Baker lost 50-44 to Pendleton Monday, and 42-35 to Emmett Tuesday in the Baker gym.

Baker never let Emmett get going Thursday and ran away with a 62-38 nonleague boys basketball win in the Baker gym.

“I was really, really pleased with our stingy defense,” said Baker coach Joel Richardson. “That opened up some scoring opportunities at the other end of the floor for us.

“I just loved the way we got after people on defense. We forced a boatload of turnovers.”

Baker scored the first 10 points of the game, including six by Logan Sand.

The Bulldogs led 12-5 after one period then outscored the Huskies 23-6 in the econd quarter to take a 35-11 halftime advantage.

Sand led the way with 11 of his game-high 22 points in the stanza.

Richardson emphasized putting the Huskies away to start the second half. However, the Bulldogs hit a minor lull and were outscored 9-6 in the quarter.

Baker then righted the ship and pulled away in the fourth quarter.

“We got a lot of different people involved in the game,” Richardson said.

Baker outrebounded Emmett 31-18, and had 16 steals, 11 assists and 20 turnovers.

Baker hosts Burns Saturday.

Baker clamped on a stifling defense in the second half Friday to top Redmond 46-36 in a nonleague boys basketball game at BHS.

The Bulldogs allowed just 10 second-half points on the way to evening their season record at 1-1.

“That was great defense,” said Baker coach Joel Richardson. “You couldn’t ask for anything more."

Baker led by two points with 1:25 left in regulation only to have the Huskies tie the game at the end of regulation.
