Crow Pads League Edge with Key Win


Byline: Chris Hansen The Register-Guard

MARCOLA - A game billed as a battle for Mountain West South supremacy was just that - a battle.

Fourth-ranked Crow outlasted No. 8 Mohawk 64-57 in a contest highlighted by a fourth quarter in which there were four lead changes and three ties.

Center Kevin Stevens-Slaughter dominated inside for the visiting Cougars, scoring 31 points, including 13 in the fourth.

Point guard Jesse Meeks also came up big for Crow late in the game, scoring all 11 of his points in the fourth quarter as the Cougars rallied from a four-point deficit going into the final frame.

"We came out in the last quarter and outhustled them," Stevens-Slaughter said. "I don't know if it was urgency as much as it was pride. We wanted to show these guys that we could beat them at home and I'm glad we did that."

The win put some more distance between the two teams, as Crow improved to 12-1 and tightened its grip on the division lead. The Indians, who lost for the second time this season to the Cougars, dropped to 10-3 but still remained firmly in second place.

"It's really hard to play well here because they take you out of your game," Crow coach Ryan Harbert said. "We need to work on some things, obviously, but it was a good win."

The Cougars opened the fourth trailing 39-35, a deficit Meeks cut to one point when he drained a three-pointer four seconds into the quarter.

Exactly two minutes later, Stevens-Slaughter gave the Cougars a 49-48 lead with a short jumper, and then put them up by three points, 51-48, with a score inside.

Crow's lead was short-lived, as Mohawk scored the next five points and reclaimed the advantage, 53-51, following a layup by Brody Wilkins at the 4:42 mark.

From that point, however, Crow outscored the Indians 13-4 to end the game, while Mohawk made only two of its final eight shots from the field and turned the ball over four times, leading to eight points for the Cougars.

Still, it was close until Stevens-Slaughter put the Cougars up for good with a layup with 1:42 left to break a 55-55 tie. He followed that with a three-point play on Crow's next possession to give his team a 60-55 lead - the largest advantage for either team since the Cougars led by six in the opening minutes of the second quarter.

"We switched momentum back and forth in the fourth quarter ... but they made key shots when they needed to and we didn't," Mohawk coach Bart Rothenberger said. "(Crow) played really well in the last three minutes and we did some things we should have done better."

The Indians, who were led by 16 points from Michael Cook, fell behind early in the game, as Crow held a 25-19 lead six minutes before halftime. But Mohawk ended the first half on a 7-2 run to cut its deficit to 27-26 by the break.

A three-pointer by Cook at the 6:26 mark of the third tied the game 29-29, and a three-pointer by Danny Reiter at 1:55 gave the Indians their first lead of the game, 37-35, which they would extend by another couple of points going into the fourth quarter following a jumper by Rocky Silva with 18 seconds left.

Wilkins finished with 14 points for Mohawk, while Chad Young added 10. Cody Hamby also scored 13 for the Cougars.

Triangle Lake 47, Alsea 40

TRIANGLE LAKE - Stormy Bateman scored 10 points and John Thiessen and James Thiessen each contributed eight as the South Division-leading Lakers improved to 11-1 in league and 15-1 overall.
