The Idaho Statesman provided live quarterly updates from the Mountain View at Borah boys basketball game Tuesday night.
FIRST QUARTER: BORAH 18, MOUNTAIN VIEW 11
Borah led by as many as 10 points with about 1 minute to play in the quarter before the Mavericks got a pair of quick buckets to pull within seven points. Ben Tucakovic leads all scorers with seven points.
SECOND QUARTER: BORAH 25, MOUNTAIN VIEW 20
Mountain View slowed the tempo in the second quarter, bringing the Mavericks within 23-20 with 2 minutes, 45 seconds to go before the half. However, senior Braden Corpus managed a one-handed putback as time expired to extend the Lions' lead to five points at the break. Borah junior Cody Spjute leads all scorers with eight points, including a 2-for-3 performance from 3-point range. Senior Brandon Luedtke is Mountain View's leader with seven points.
THIRD QUARTER: BORAH 35, MOUNTAIN VIEW 26
The game was stopped at 5:58 when Mountain View's Alex Stewart left the court with a bloody face. Janitorial staff is brought in to mop up the floor. Mountain View's Cameron Matosich says Stewart was hit in the head while he was on the floor scrambling for the ball. Once things are cleared up, Borah goes on a 10-4 run to head into the final frame with a lead.
FOURTH QUARTER: BORAH 48, MOUNTAIN VIEW 36 (FINAL)
Borah held Mountain View to just two field goals — a pair of 3-pointers — for nearly the entire fourth quarter. Mountain View's Alex Stewart returned to the court with 5:54 to play with a bandage in the middle of his forehead. Borah's Ben Tucakovic led all scorers with 16 points and 15 rebounds, while Cody Spjute added 14 points. Brandon Luedtke was Mountain View's leader with 12 points and seven rebounds. Stewart has about a 1-inch cut in the center of his forehead that will require stitches, he said after the game.
