The Center Foundation Player of the Game: Brian Warinner

Handling the ball against the press, driving to the hoop to score several of his game-high 21 points, and sinking key free throws down the stretch, Brian Warinner led a strong team effort to help visiting Bend Senior High hand Mountain View its first loss of the Intermountain Conference season, a 73-62 triumph Friday evening.

For his efforts, the junior forward earned The Center Foundation Player of the Game honors for the second time this season.
