Print Article

WAPATO — The Huskies struggled to get things going on the road in their postseason opener as Othello’s season came to an end Monday night against East Valley 75-39. Othello had secured the final spot in the Central Washington Athletic Conference district tournament after taking down Wapato, 49-47, in a tiebreaker.

Junior Jaden Flores finished with 12 points and three assists for the Huskies, nailing four of six from deep. Patrick Azevedo, Jorge Buenrostro and Julian Alegria each finished with six points.

Othello head coach Roman Pruneda said the Huskies had one of their worst halves of basketball all season on the road on Monday.

“This year we learned a lot, we just couldn’t put a full game together,” Pruneda said. “But I think it’s really going to help our younger guys, our freshmen, our sophomores, our juniors, in the long run.”

The third-year Huskies coach said he saw a lot of growth and good things out of his younger players this season. Pruneda has taken the Huskies to the postseason in two of his first three seasons in Othello.

The Othello head coach said he sees a lot of promise, in addition to high basketball IQs, in the younger players coming up in the program, giving him confidence in the future.
