Prep boys basketball: Meadowdale 64, Shorecrest 40

SHORELINE — Tyce Tallman scored 24 points to lead Meadowdale to a 64-40 win over Shorecrest in a Wesco 3A boys basketball contest Tuesday evening.

Meadowdale utilized a 2-3 zone that had Shorecrest flummoxed much of the game and left them shooting 3-pointers, which isn’t their game according to Shorecrest assistant coach Mark Haner.

“We missed a lot of 3’s,” Haner said. “I don’t have the shooting statistics but Canfield was the only one to make any and he certainly wasn’t the only one shooting them.”

The Mavericks jumped out to a 16-11 lead after the first quarter and didn’t look back. At halftime, the score was 31-18 and Meadowdale was in cruise control.

“They were the aggressor,” Haner added. “It was mostly Tallman. He was getting to the rim pretty consistently and was active on the boards.”

Ryan Canfield led Shorecrest with 12 points.

As for the importance of the league game this early on in the season for a couple of teams that were tied with 2-1 league records entering the day, Haner believed it to be as important as any other.

“It’s early on in the season but anytime you play Meadowdale … it’s a pretty big game.”
