Idaho Boys Basketball Top 25 (Jan. 25): Nelson's Three Lifts Teton to Win

When Class 3A Teton and Class 2A Ririe met earlier this season, the Timberwolves scored 66 points and earned a win.

Last night, when Teton and Ririe met again, the Timberwolves scored 66 points again to pick up the victory.

The difference between the two contests lies in the final margin of victory: a 66-55 win for Teton in early December turned into a 66-65 nailbiter on Tuesday night.  Jack Nelson made the game-winning three for the Timberwolves with roughly seven seconds remaining to give Teton the come-from-behind win.

With the win, Teton improved to 14-2 overall, and they're currently ranked second among Class 3A teams in our Idaho Boys Basketball Top 25 Daily rankings.  Snake River is 3A's top-ranked team, and Teton split with the Panthers this season.  Their only other loss came to Class 2A Cole Valley Christian in December.

Led by veteran coach Rob Heuseveldt, Teton boasts a strong nucleus of players.  The Heuseveldt brothers, Jarom (6-foot-1 senior) and Thomas (5-foot-11 junior) start in the backcourt.  6-foot-3 senior Brody Hess and 6-foot-5 junior Tyson Brown bring size and strength to the forward positions.  And 6-foot-8 senior Davis Wood holds down the fort inside.  6-foot-2 junior Kaiden Hastings, 6-foot-3 junior Max Thomas and last night's hero, the 5-foot-10 Nelson, lead the bench crew.

As for Ririe, there's no shame in falling by one to a 14-2 team.  The loss did bump the Bulldogs from the Top 25 rankings, but their 14-3 overall record suggests they'll be back before long.  They have the pair of losses to Teton, plus last week's nine point setback to West Jefferson (currently ranked 3rd among 2A teams.)

Ririe is paced by 6-foot senior Sterling Bybee on the perimeter, and 6-foot-6 senior Houston Brown inside.  The Bulldogs have a gauntlet of a schedule to conclude the regular season.  Matchups with West Side, North Fremont, West Jefferson and Firth lie ahead.
