HAMILTON — The Northwest A’s top seeds cruised on Wednesday while the Southwest’s got to wait another day before jumping into the Western A Divisional basketball tournament at Hamilton High School’s Dale Berry Court.
Only half of the divisional’s teams began play Wednesday at the tournament that looks to determine the top four teams that will represent the NWA/SWA combined division at the state tournaments coming up. The Polson boys and Columbia Falls girls, regular-season titlist from the Northwest, made their early start count.
Polson was nearly doubling up Corvallis until taking its foot off the gas in the second half of a 65-47 victory. The Pirates (14-5) led 33-18 at halftime. Matthew Rensvold scored half of his game-high 22 points in the fourth quarter of the win.
