The shots finally fell for the William Chrisman boys basketball team Tuesday.
And the Bears closed out their apperance in the MaxPreps Holiday Classic with a 75-58 win over Reno (Nev.) at Torrey Pines High School.
Jon Ekey drained five 3-pointers and scored 19 points, while Justin Clark led the way with 21 points for the Bears (5-5), who came alive with a 29-point fourth quarter for the win.
“Shots started to fall,” Bears coach John Vickers said. “Our defense was also better. We started getting into passing lanes, turning defense into offense, and strung some 3-pointers together. Nathan Martin came up huge for us.”
Martin hit four 3-pointers and scored 14 points.
After dropping the first three games of this tournament, Vickers said it was a thrill for the team to end the tournament with a win.
“Winning definitely feels a lot better than losing,” Vickers joked. “Losing three in a row was frustrating. The competition level was so incredible out here. It was good to finish with a win.”
WARSAW 58, GRAIN VALLEY 52: Grain Valley’s highest point output of the year was not enough to get a win in the State Fair Shootout Tuesday at Sedalia, Mo.
The Eagles fell behind 42-33 after three quarters and couldn’t recover.
“We just ran in the mud,” Eagles coach Andy Herbert said. “It was an afternoon game during Christmas break. There wasn’t much bounce in our step. We just couldn’t stop them. We scored 52 points, which is the most we’ve scored all year, but we couldn’t stop them.”
Derreon Parker led the Eagles (3-4) with 17 points.

GIRLS
SEDALIA, Mo. – A strong start helped Grain Valley pick up a win in the State Fair Shootout.
Taylor Lipps scored 14 points, while Ashley Bundren added 11 in a 58-47 win over Warsaw Tuesday.
However, Eagles coach Steve Broughton said he wanted a better effort from his team.
“We didn’t play well,” he said. “We hadn’t played in two weeks. It wasn’t a very good game, but we got the win, which was the most important thing. And it was good to get back to playing again.”
Grain Valley jumped out to a 32-19 halftime lead and never looked back in improving to 4-3 on the season.
