LEROY \u2014 The season ended at 10-11 for Pine River\u2019s boys basketball team last Wednesday in a 58-44 district semifinal loss to the host school at McBain in Class C district action. Kyle Brock had 15 points for Pine River. But McBain netted 13 points apiece from Jared Larr, Logan Nemeth and Nathan Smith. \u201cWe practiced a four-flat offense because they\u2019re denying our wings so strong and our guards were having difficulty making their tough passes over their taller players,\u201d said Pine River coach Scott Benson. \u201cThey went to a box-and-one and had a guy all over Austin (Marine). We tried to break him free and set picks and things like that.\u201d Brock had five 3-pointers. \u201cThat kept us in the game,\u201d Benson said. \u201cIt boiled down to the second half, they shot 18 free throws, we shot two. The thing that probably hurt us the most is they took one shot and that was it. They did a good job on the boards.\u201d Pine River finished the season at 10-11 overall. \u201cWe lost six games in the last seconds,\u201d Benson said. \u201cThat happens. You\u2019re talking about 17-4. We only had about two games where we didn\u2019t really play well.\u201d EVART BOYS The Evart boys ended their season last Wednesday with a 53-41 loss to White Cloud. \u201cWe started out well,\u201d said Evart coach Matt Alexander. \u201cThen we hit a stretch in the second through third quarter. We went flat. They had more energy than us. They built a 20-point lead. In the fourth, we cut it to 10 with three minutes to go but couldn\u2019t put in a good run to close it further than that.\u201d Evart, at 8-11, still displayed market improvement from a 4-17 season last year and a 0-21 campaign in 2008-09. \u201cMy kids worked hard all year long,\u201d Alexander said. \u201cWe were competitive from game 1 to game 19. We only had one senior who played a lot. We have a good core returning next year.\u201d Tyler Mishler is the only senior starter who is graduating.
