Tremont Robinson White scored 29 points and KJ Houston added 22 as the host Wenatchee Bighorns put the brakes on the Great Falls Electric’s chances of a weekend sweep. Both teams were deadlocked at 24-24 after the first quarter before the Bighorns offense took over for the rest of the way in a 110-103 victory at the Chelan Community Gym. Great Falls’ top talent, Lyle Hexom and Antwaan Cushingberry accounted for 70 total points.

Antwaan Cushingberry scored seven of his game-high 32 points in the first quarter with all of them coming in the final two minutes. Teammate Lyle Hexom scored the first points of the game to finish the first twelve minutes with nine markers. KJ Houston contributed nine points for Wenatchee as both squads each had 24 points before the second quarter.

Eli Sample and Terel Jennings, Jr. scored the first seven points to stretch the lead to 31-24 during the opening minutes of the second quarter. Antwaan Cushingberry dialed up from long distance  to cut the Electric’s deficit to 31-27. The host team led by ten points (37-27) and would take a 51-44 lead at halftime.

The Bighorns scored eight consecutive points (59-44) that erased the first three minutes of the third as Lyle Hexom buried a three for Great Falls. Wenatchee increased their lead to 75-62 with one quarter remaining.

The Electric fought back in the fourth and made the game exciting in the final minute. Lyle Hexom long distance trey pulled Great Falls to within four points (107-103) with 18 seconds left but a layup by Eli Sample and he made one of his two free throws for the Bighorns victory. Hexom and Cushingberry chipped in 13 points apiece during the final quarter.

Before making their first road trip to Great Falls on May 24-25, Wenatchee will be in Seattle, WA on Thursday, May 16th for a game with the Super Hawks and then will host the Salem (OR) Capitals on Friday, May 17th.
