Madison wins 11th straight; Jan. 11 boys basketball round up

At Rexburg, the Madison High School boys basketball team ran its winning streak to 11 games Thursday with a 61-43 win over Upper Valley rival Rigby.

Madison coach Travis Schwab said the Trojans shot 54 percent from the field in the first half compared to 19 percent for Madison.

“If you would have told me we would shoot 19 percent from the floor and still lead by one at halftime I would take that all day,” Schwab said. “It was your typical rivalry game. We had a huge crowd and I was not surprised that Rigby came out aggressive, and they shot the ball very well in the first half.”

In the second half Madison picked up the intensity, holding the Trojans to 24 points.

Spencer Hathaway led Madison with 18 points and Brigham Williams added 16 while Mason McWhorter came off the bench to score 12 for Madison (13-2, 3-0), which plays at Hillcrest on Jan. 19

Bryson Huffins scored 13 for Rigby (2-10, 0-2), which plays Saturday at Blackfoot.
