IDA GROVE, Iowa -- Sioux City West picked up its first boys basketball win of the season here Thursday night, getting by OA-BCIG 43-36.

Freshman Colby Hill led a balanced Wolverine scoring list with 11 points. Avery Thedford and Gerald Heiskell added 10 points each while Kaleb Kennedy finished with nine points and 10 rebounds.

"It was nice to get our first win, especially on the road," said West Coach Brian Hill. "We were very patient offensively and did a good job of boxing out on the boards, which is something we've been harping about this week."

West outrebounded the Falcons 42-23. The Wolverines led 14-6 after one quarter and 29-19 at halftime. It was 31-24 after a low-scoring third quarter.

Joey Luft had a game-high 17 points for OA-BCIG, now 2-5 overall.

West won the junior varsity game 46-31. Nick Abelson scored 10 points and grabbed 11 rebounds and Jimmy Reising added 10 points.

The Wolverines, now 1-5, host Council Bluffs Abraham Lincoln at 7:30 tonight.
