Erik Stevenson scored 33 points as Timberline bombed away from long range to beat the Titans.

Stevenson, a Wichita State commit, was 7-for-10 from 3-point range. The Blazers (6-1) made 12 3-pointers and shot 57 percent from the field.

Saturday’s game at Union saw the Titans take on a team looking to reach the 3A state tournament in back-to-back seasons.

“We all agreed that this is not an indication of who we are,” Union coach Blake Conley said. “We got outplayed tonight. But that’s why we schedule these types of games. Hopefully we’ll learn from it.”

Ethan Smith scored 16 points to lead Union (6-2). The Titans were without starting guard Zach Reznick due to illness.
