West Side overcame a disappointing loss to Grangeville on Friday evening, regrouped Saturday morning and beat the Firth Cougars at Capital High School in Boise to bring home the third-place boys basketball trophy.
Like it has been for many games this season, the Pirate defense clamped down on Firth, limiting the Cougars to just 27 percent field-goal shooting in the 48-44 win.
West Side also dominated on the boards with a 45-25 advantage and made the Cougars give up 17 second-chance points.
Pirate Senior Jaxon Smart had a big night and collected 10 offensive rebounds and scored 17 points. He was followed by senior Mason Lemmon, who put in 15 points and had eight rebounds.
