Blazers take out Wenatchee Valley by 26


The Centralia College men’s basketball team dominated just about from start to finish Saturday in Bellingham on the second day of the Orca Classic, handling Wenatchee Valley 82-56 for its first comfortable win of the season.

The Blazers finished with four players in double figures, three of whom came off the bench. Ian Coates-White led the charge with 12 points, going 4 for 4 from beyond the arc, while Ahren Bee-Richards had 11 points and Kevin Williams and Nashon Henderson-Crews had 10 apiece.

Fourteen different Trailblazers got onto the scoresheet; CC’s bench racked up 57 points to outscore Wenatchee Valley by itself.

Bee-Richards and Joshue Forster both had six rebounds to lead the Blazers on the glass, while Henderson-Crews had four assists.

CC will finally get to host its home opener Tuesday, against Bellevue.
