•Sandpoint 46, Kellogg 41

SANDPOINT — After starting the season 1-3, Sandpoint has found its rhythm and won three of its last four games, beating Kellogg 46-41 on Saturday night in nonleague play at Les Rogers Court.

Sandpoint coach Will Love challenged his team to hold Kellogg to 35 points in the game and the Bulldogs nearly delivered.

“I was really pleased with what we were able to do defensively tonight and that certainly put us in a position to win the game,” Love said. “Kellogg did a good job of getting us out of our offense and what we want to do ... so we started to press,” Love said about his team’s third quarter performance.

This allowed the Wildcats to climb back into the game and eventually narrow Sandpoint’s lead to 3 points with under four minutes left.

With the offense struggling, the Bulldogs needed someone to step up and make a play to avoid letting the game slip away.

The phone rang and senior Maddie Morgan answered, burying a 3-pointer to stop the Wildcats momentum.

Senior Dawson Driggs led the Bulldogs with 16 points and three steals. Sophomore Darian Hill scored 11 points for Kellogg and seniors Jaron Figueroa and Lora Allred each tallied 8.

Kellogg boys basketball

•Newport 53, Kellogg 43

NEWPORT, Wash. — It was a nightmare second half for the Wildcats who led 28-20 going into the break, but were outscored 33-15 the rest of the way in their Dec. 12 game at Newport.

Kellogg was led by Graden Nearing who had 19 points.

•Kellogg 59, Sandpoint 51

SANDPOINT — Graden Nearing scored a game-high 21 points to lead the Wildcats past the Bulldogs in a nonleague game on Dec. 14 at Les Rogers Court.

Sandpoint led 30-27 at the half, but Kellogg outscored the Bulldogs 16-6 in the third quarter.

Tempers flared down the stretch as Sandpoint senior point guard Kobe Banks fouled out and received a technical before taking a seat on the bench, leaving the Bulldogs without their best scorer for the final four minutes.

“We’ve had some pretty good stretches, but haven’t been able to put it all together for four quarters, so the effort was good tonight from beginning to end,” Kellogg coach Jeff Nearing said. “I thought we did a good job of keeping our composure. Things got a little heated and emotional, but for the most part, we did a good job.”

Banks had 13 points and six assists, while Ryan Roos had 11 points and 10 rebounds for Sandpoint.

“On defense, we were missing assignments, we were late on rotations,” Sandpoint coach Wade Engelson said. “And we have to make sure that we don’t do that.”

Gavin Luna had 11 points and 10 rebounds for Kellogg.

Kellogg 15 12 16 16 — 59

Sandpoint 19 11 6 15 — 51
