In a hotly contested rematch of last year's Class 4A boys basketball championship, the Hillcrest Knights once again proved that they are the premiere program in the classification, dispatching Pocatello 62-58 on Saturday night at the Ford Idaho Center in Nampa.

The Knights showcased the strength of their starting five, as four different starters finished in double figures scoring. Player of the Game Isaac Davis led the way with 22 points, eight rebounds and eight steals.  

The win didn't come easy, though.  Pocatello started hot, leading 15-9 after one quarter of play.  They stretched the lead out to 12 points at 25-13 midway through the second quarter, but from that point on, Hillcrest began to chip away at the deficit.  A three-pointer from Ike Sutton as time expired just before halftime brought the Knights to within 33-30.

Pocatello continued to scorch the nets in the third quarter, taking a 47-43 lead after three periods of play, but Hillcrest closed out game by outscoring the Thunder 19-11 in the decisive fourth quarter.

Pocatello junior and Boise State commit Julian Bowie did all he could to keep the Thunder in the game, but he and his teammates ultimately ran out of gas down the stretch.  Bowie scored a game-high 39 points in the loss, and established new Class 4A scoring records for most points in a tournament (89) and highest point per game average in a tournament (29.7 PPG).

POCATELLO (25-3) - Julian Bowie 39, Kesler Vaughan 9, Krue Hales 6, Parker Smith 2, Dre Contreras 2, Gage Ontiveros 0, Logan Rogers 0, Mason Zweigart 0, Kansas Evans 0, Isaiah Snell 0

HILLCREST (25-1) - Isaac Davis 22, Kobe Kesler 15, Talan Taylor 11, Ike Sutton 10, Titan Larsen 4, Gavin Hepworth 0, Cole Peninger 0, Matthew Trenkle 0
