The Indians won their fifth nonconference game in a row, 64-46.

Robert Lohman led all scorers with 19 points as the Indians (8-3 overall) took over in the paint. Joey Wagenknecht swooped in for 12 points and Ian Donaldson came away with 12 points.

"I thought we played well, but the thing we need to work on is boxing out," Lohman said.

Tigers junior post Hunter Horne scored 16 points for Yamhill-Carlton (4-8). Senior guard Tanner Myrick added 11 points.

"Once we got a lot more aggressive, we got in their heads and got them out of rhythm like coach [Rahim Tufts] said," Wagenknecht said.

Scappoose bore down on the Tigers at the rim and made 17 of 23 free throws. Yamhill-Carlton finished 7-of-13.

"What really helped were offensive boards, and it helped our defense," said Boogie Davis, who scored six points. "Tanner [Kramer], Michael [Gift] and Joey really got into it. At our three-hour practice, we worked on defense the whole time."

Next up for the Indians is a nonconference tilt with Philomath -- top-ranked as of Friday -- at 7 p.m. on Tuesday.
