In what was advertised as the game of the year in 5A, Churchill dismantled Crater 61-48 to capture their 33rd straight MWL win on Tuesday.

The Lancers dominated the game defensively, holding Crater to a season-low point total by controlling the pace of play and forcing blue-chip prospect Nate Bittle to operate on the perimeter. 

In what may have been a silent nail in the Comets’ coffin, Lancer guard Isaiah Wallace went on a personal 5-0 run to close the third quarter, scoring off both his own steal and a brilliant dish from Silas Bennion to make the game 41-24 entering the fourth.

From that point on, the Lancers ate away at the clock and held off the upset-hungry Comets to clinch at least a share of their second-straight MWL title.

Here’s our “Ten Best” from Tuesday:
