Gresham 81, Bowler 41
Gresham’s talent was on display in full force in a game that was never in question. The veteran Wildcats squad took it to a young Bowler team, which honored its lone seniors before their final home game.

He connected on four 3-pointers, all coming in the second half. Gresham had four players in double figures. Neal Cerveny led all scorers with 23 points, while Legacy Skenedore knocked down five first half 3-pointers on his way to a 19-point performance. Drew Haffner and Todd Otradovec scored 13 and 12 points, respectfully. Gresham still remains in the hunt for at least a share of the CWC-10 title.
