Becker lifts Nevis boys past PR-B

     Gavin Becker’s 20 points, five rebounds and four assists led the Nevis boys basketball team to a 51-43 Northland Conference victory over Pine River-Backus Friday night at Pine River.

     Courtland Chase had a double-double with 12 points and 11 rebounds while Jordan Feder chipped in 8 points and four rebounds. Griffin Chase and Michael Babler had two assists each for the Tigers, who led 28-27 at the half.

     “We were able to get the lead early and basically hung on for the win,” said Nevis head coach Scott Kramer. “It was a very physical game for us as we got dinged up pretty good. It was an important win in conference play, especially on the road.”

     The win lifted the Tigers to 3-1 in conference play and 6-2 overall. PR-B fell to 0-6 in the conference and 0-9 overall.
