Burley 56, Preston 46

BURLEY — It was two different halves of basketball for Burley in the season-opening win over Preston.

The Bobcats scored only 17 points in the first half and more than doubled that total with 39 points in the second half. Sydney Pilling had a big night, scoring 24 points including three 3-pointers, and Halle Cook followed with 13 points.

“We didn’t play well the first half at all,” said Burley coach Roger Caresia. ”But the second half, we settled down, got those first game jitters out and played well.”

Burley travels to Pocatello on Wednesday.

JEROME — Mercedes Bell had a team-high 14 points and senior Jordan Hill tossed in 12 in the Tigers’ one-point loss to the Indians.

“Pocatello came out with a lot of effort in the third quarter,” said Jerome coach Jeremy Munroe. “We didn’t match them with that effort right off the bat. ... Our defensive intensity needs to pick up. Fifty-nine is way too many points to give up.”

Jerome is at Filer next Friday.
