I.F. boys outlast Blackfoot to take No. 2 seed; Feb. 7 boys basketball roundup

At Idaho Falls, Kalvin Bowen and Cam Conrad combined to score 35 points and the Idaho Falls High School boys basketball team defeated Blackfoot 69-63.

Tigers coach Howard Hart said the win wrapped up the No. 2 seed for Idaho Falls for the 4A District 5-6 tournament. The game featured two 20-point quarters — I.F. had 25 in the third and Blackfoot had 28 in the fourth — and 12 3-pointers by the Broncos. I.F. entered the fourth quarter up 51-35.

“They didn’t quit,” Hart said of Blackfoot. “They just kept hanging in there. I give them a ton of credit. This is district basketball. Everyone’s still trying to vy for that spot (at districts).”

Trevor Miller had 22 points and Reece Robinson had 21 for Blackfoot (6-13, 3-7), which hosts Madison on Friday in its regular season finale.

Idaho Falls (8-12, 6-4) hosts Bonneville on Friday to end the regular season.

The Bulldogs led 24-16 at halftime before the margin narrowed to 36-34 entering the fourth quarter. Ririe pulled away by going 20-for-22 from the foul line in the fourth quarter.

“Hitting the foul shots was big,” Ririe coach Eric Torgerson said. “We needed to win this game. I told the guys before the game, ‘If we just take care of business and win this game, we’re gonna save a lot of people a lot of headache.’”

The Vikings led 28-23 at halftime, but Rockland cut the deficit to 43-42 after three. Rockland’s Rex Permann, who had a game-high 28 points, released a 35-footer that would’ve sent the game to overtime, but it took a bounce.

“He got hot at the 3-point line and we couldn’t keep him off the glass,” Challis coach Jerrod Farr said. “We made some free throws down the stretch.”
