A 26-point fourth quarter, fueled by three 3-pointers from Keegan Leibelt, completed the Storm’s rally from a big early deficit.

Skyview was outscored 12-0 in the first quarter and trailed 37-30 entering the final period, setting up the comeback. Leibelt’s 3-pointers accounted for all his scoring in the game, and Austin Bonds added seven points in the fourth quarter as the Storm held a 26-8 advantage.

Evergreen was led by Caleb Dressler with 19 points, 14 rebounds, and six blocked shots.

“We played very well,” Evergreen coach Kelly Blankenship said. “We played a good first quarter and a solid second quarter. After that, they got us in a half-court trap, we started turning over the ball, and they started hitting buckets.”

Bonds finished with 11 points for Skyview, along with six rebounds and four steals. Ross Armstrong led the Storm with eight rebounds.

“They just got really physical with us on the boards, and they got a lot of second chances,” Blankenship said. “They were a lot more aggressive on the boards.”
