Broncs collapse in the 2nd half, lose to Teton again

TETON VALLEY, Ida. — The Jackson boys basketball team headed to Teton Valley yesterday looking for a little revenge after last Friday’s tough loss at home to the Teton Redskins. For one half of a play, it looked like the backend of the home-and-home “Pass Bash” might go the way of the Black and Orange but Teton pulled away for a 77-43 after a blitzkrieg second half.

The ball did not bounce Jackson’s way in the final two periods last night as the Broncs watched a 1-point lead at the half quickly turn into another route and their 9th loss of the season without a win.

Jackson led at halftime 27-26, scratching back into the game where they were down by as much as 7 thanks to a strong 2nd quarter when senior Silas Wotkyns (who finished with 21 points and five 3-pointers) was feeling it from beyond the arc.

But fellow senior Evan Brunner couldn’t get anything to fall all night—finishing a dismal 2 for 15 from the field—and the Broncs found it tough to handle Teton’s size advantage inside during a second-half collapse.

The Redskins left Jackson in the dust with a 51-point second half. The Broncs, by contrast, managed just five total points in the final quarter.

Teton’s Luke Thompson (6’4″ 220 lbs) was a monster in the paint along with center Xander Vontz (6’6″ 190 lbs). Point guard Hyrum Heuseveldt ran the floor well for the redskins and Harrison Moulton was outstanding off the bench.

The Broncs fall to 0-9 on the season. Teton improved its record to 6-2.
