In the closing weeks of League play, the second place West Valley Eagles (12-7, 6-5), came to town with hopes of upsetting the undefeated Hounds (16-2, 10-0). Already clinching first place in league after their 54-32 route win against Clarkston, the Hounds look to continue their eight game win streak. The Eagles started out fast with a six-point lead after the first quarter, with the Hounds unable to find a rhythm on offense against the 2-3 zone of the Eagles. The Hounds cut the deficit in half at the end of the second quarter to push some momentum back into their favor. With the hope of making adjustments, the Hounds quickly got the lead back, but the Eagles still kept it within reach only being down one by the end of the third. The hounds looked like themselves in the fourth quarter, as they outscored the Eagles 18-4. The scoring of Jake Wells yet again led all scorers with 22, as he started a little slow in the first half, but when it counted he heated up. Cole Hawes also added 18 of his own, as he was able to dominate the paint. Hard defense was the recipe for success, as it has been all season. With the hope of keeping their league record unscathed, the Hounds will travel up to Cheney to face the Blackhawks with hopes of sweeping the season series. The Hounds will host the District Championship on February 14th.
