State title eludes Pateros Billygoats Jason Crawley named to first team All-Tournament after leading in scoring The Pateros Billygoats' dreams of a state championship were shot down in the opening round of the State B Basketball Tournament at the Spokane Arena on March 4 by the Curlew Cougars with a 79-64 loss. Pateros had been ranked the top B school in the state of Washington for most of the year, except for the brief time Curlew held "1 am extremely proud of this II that position. Curlew dropped to the second ranking after having to forfeit three games forplaying some players too many quarters. "I think everybody that goes to state goes there with high expec- tations," said Mike Hull, group... Pateros boys basket- - Mike Hull ballcoach."Ourdreams were taken away in that first night, but I think just being over there playing in The Arena will give them good memories." "I am extremely proud of this group. Any time you can rack up 24 wins versus just three losses it has been a good season." Curlew had fell on hard times during its District 7-B Basketball Tournament and lost three of its five games, and took the fourth seed into the state tournament. Pateros held a slight 16-13 lead after the first quarter and were up by six points early in the second but the Cougars took a 33-31 lead into halftime. Curlew went on a 28-15 rally in the third to take control of the game and played even with Pateros in the final quarter to win 79-64. "I just think that was probably the toughest first round match-up ever," said Hull. "In the third quarter they got on a tear -- we have never had anybody light us up like that." Clint Hull kept the Billygoats in the game with a strong offensive game and led the team with one trey, 30 points and eight rebounds, Jason Crawley worked his way inside for 13 points, six rebounds and one trey, Jorge Lopez hit one trey and ended with five points and three rebounds, Greg Molkjer had five points, Jerad Evans pitched in five points and three rebounds, Carlos Morales put in four points and two rebounds, Mark Stennes netted two points, Chris Zahn pulled down five rebounds, Nathan Sandy and Brian Crooks both had one rebound. Curlew's Jeremy Groth had 28 points, Gun- ner Olsen put in 16 points, Caleb Edwards added 14 points and Eric Prazak had 10 points. Groth hit three of his six three-pointers during a 21-6 third.quarter run. The Cougars had Gunner Olsen, 22.4, Jer- emy Groth, 17, Erich Prazak, 15.3, Seth Cribby, 10.3, all averaged double figures during the year and Caleb Edwards, 9.6, and J.B.
