Skyview, Homer split in Tuesday hoops action

Skyview boys win in thrilling game

There’s no better feeling than beating an opponent on your home floor, and the Skyview boys basketball team just managed to do that on Tuesday, edging out Southcentral Conference opponent Homer 46-45 in a thrilling finish.

Sophomore Bailey Jones sank the crucial game-winning layup with 24 seconds remaining to put Skyview up by one, and after a quick timeout, Homer squandered their possession trying to get a shot off before the buzzer.

“It was real tough. I don’t even know how to explain it,” Skyview sophomore Tim Duke said. “(Coach) told us to move the ball around and don’t force any bad passes, keep the ball moving and control the game.

“That last shot by Bailey Jones was the move that won it.”

Duke, Jones and Jacob Carlson each had nine points to top the Panthers, while Homer’s top scorer was Sheldon Hutt, followed closely by his teammate Sam Reinert with 11 points.

“We were really trying to control the ball at the end,” Skyview coach Jesse Settlemyer said. “The idea was to run out the clock and make them foul. We got an opportunity, and Bailey took it and got a great look and it rolled in. It won us the game.”

Settlemyer said Skyview’s last possession, which gave them the lead, wasn’t drawn up quite the way it went down.

“We were looking for layup opportunities, maybe get some backdoor shots in,” he said. “Again, we were just looking to run the clock out and make them foul.”

Skyview had built up a decent-sized lead early in the game, at one point leading 18-8 midway through the second quarter, and were up seven points at halftime.

But, whatever Homer coach Mark Casseri said during the halftime break must have worked, because the Mariners rallied back in the third quarter, outscoring Skyview 16-8 in the third quarter, taking the lead for the first time on a free throw from Filip Reutov with 1 minute, 3 seconds, left in the period.

In the final 9:39 that was played, there were seven lead changes and four ties, but ultimately it was Skyview that was able to hold up the best under pressure.

“We have to work on free throws,” Casseri said. “We played good defense, we played decent offense. ... Skyview has a great team. They play really hard. We give all the credit to Jesse and his team.”

Hutt, from Homer, had a driving layup with 2:06 remaining to make it a 44-43 game, Skyview leading, and Homer took the lead with 39 seconds to go on a jumper from Mark McGregor.

Skyview improves to a 6-12 overall season record, and 4-4 in the conference, and will play Ninilchik on Thursday at home.

Homer girls 46, Skyview 18

Earlier on Tuesday night, the Homer girls crushed the Panthers by opening up an early 9-0 lead and never looking back.

Tayla Cabana and Haley Oliver shared the most points with nine each for Homer, and Skyview was paced by Hayley Ramsell with six points.

Homer held an advantage with their steals and fast-break points, piling it on especially in the third quarter when the Mariners outscored Skyview 14-2. In the fourth, the Mariners held a 15-8 points advantage.

“We were experimenting with some new stuff, and our enthusiasm hasn’t been the greatest for the last few games, and we’ve had a lot of sickness,” Homer coach Brent Keene said. “We’ve been on the road a lot and it’s just taken it’s toll, but I absolutely think this is a good win, and hopefully we’ll peak when regions comes along.”

With the victory, the Lady Mariners improve to 3-5 in the Southcentral Conference.
