Jordan Valley boys in final 8, heading to Baker

TURNER – The Jordan Valley boys will make the trip to Baker on Thursday as one of the final eight teams vying for a 1A state basketball championship.

The journey comes after a 65-44 home win over Trinity Lutheran last Wednesday followed by a 54-42 road upset win over Crosshill Christian Saturday.

The wins came off defense, according to Jordan Valley Coach Clint Fillmore.

“We played good defense in both games and took care of the ball on offense,” Fillmore said.

Against Trinity Lutheran, Kirk Eiguren picked up nine rebounds to go with 13 points and Zeke Quintero had six rebounds. 

Chase Fillmore led all scorers with 24 points and was perfect from the 3-point arc, going 3-for-3.
