GREAT FALLS —The Great Falls Electric fell two points short Saturday night in its attempt to qualify for The Basketball League postseason playoffs.

The Electric, the first pro basketball franchise to operate in Great Falls in 16 years, dropped a 91-89 decision to the Wenatchee (Wash.) Bighorns in their regular-season finale at CMR Fieldhouse. The Bighorns also beat Great Falls 104-97 on Friday night.

Those victories left the Bighorns in fourth place in the TBL Pacific Northwest standings with a 10-9 record, while the Electric was fifth at 10-10. A Great Falls victory in either game would have secured a spot in the playoffs, which start this week.

Electric forward Kareem Jamar, a former University of Montana star who played several years of pro ball overseas and currently is an assistant coach at CMR, led the Electric with 32 points and Lyle Hexom added 20. Jamar also scored 33 points in Friday’s loss.

Missi Jeanneau-Mubiala made all 10 of his field goal attempts and led Wenatchee with 29 points on Saturday. The team’s leading scorer, Tremont Robinson-White, added 14 points including a layup just before the buzzer.

The Electric joined the TBL this season under the ownership of local businessman Jim Keough. The TBL, based in Indiana, has about 50 teams nationwide and operates with fourth conferences. The playoffs are scheduled to begin May 28 with 16 teams and the Finals are set for mid-June.
