Rainier Beach comes away with win against Bainbridge

The big guns of Rainier Beach shelled the Spartans Tuesday and the Vikings ran away with a 86-36 win in Metro League boys basketball.

Rainier Beach jumped to a 16-8 lead after the first quarter on their home court and never looked back.

Bainbridge had 35 turnovers, gave up 30 transition points and 25 offensive rebounds.

"I felt our youth really showed through," said Spartans Coach Scott Orness.

"I feel like we played the name across their jersey and we didn't stick to our philosophy on both offense and defense," he explained. "I was disappointed in our performance, but this is a smart group of young men and I know we will learn from this experience."

Shaqquan Aaron paced the Vikings with 25 points, while teammates Naim Ladd and Marquis Davis added 14 and 13 points respectively.

The Spartans' Oskar Dieterich had 15 rebounds to go along with his 17 points. Joey Blacker added 15 points for BHS.
