NAPAVINE — Jordan Purvis scored 38 points to lead Napavine to an 80-71 win over La Center in a nonleague boys basketball game here on Friday night.
Purvis added six rebounds and four assists.
“He was great, he played a complete game,” Napavine coach Rex Stanley said.
Peyton Stanley scored 13 points and freshman Cade Evander, coming off the bench, added 13 points.
“He’s been playing good all year. He’s getting better and better,” Stanley said. “He gives us size and athleticism. He was really productive.”
Dawson Stanley scored 11 points and Noah Lantz had a team-high 10 rebounds.
Napavine built a 23-13 lead after the first quarter, but La Center battled back in the second quarter and cut the Napavine lead to 37-31 at halftime. The Tigers came out strong in the third quarter and expanded the lead to 64-50 going into the fourth quarter. The Wildcats didn’t go away without a fight, outscoring the Tigers in the fourth quarter, but it wasn’t enough.
“It was pretty much more of the same. They have some shooters, they like to play at a fast pace. It was back and forth the whole game,” Stanley said.
Napavine (6-1, 5-1) is back on the court Thursday at 2 p.m., on the road against Muckleshoot Tribal School in Auburn.

Indians Roll Past Panthers
ELLENSBURG — Toledo’s Junior Arroyo led the way with 12 points and 7 rebounds to help push the Indians to a 52-43 win over Asotin in a nonleague boys basketball game here on Friday.
Andreas Malunat added 11 points off the bench, knocking down 3 of 4 shots from behind the arc.
Toledo ended the first quarter with an 8-5 lead, but locked down on defense in the second quarter, holding Asotin to four points to expand the lead to 27-9 at halftime. The lead allowed the Indians to rotate some players in and cruise in the second half for the win.
“Reece is our main scorer but it went inside out. We have a little more patience and Malunat coming off the bench.He’s been stepping in and making shots, been a little spark off the bench,” Toledo coach Grady Fallon said. “Junior was solid. My starters didn’t play at all in the fourth. They came back a little bit on us, We started rotating guys and going with different combos there. Everybody got to play. They didn’t quit and they kept coming at us.”
Toledo (8-1, 5-0) hosts Napavine on Tuesday, Jan. 2, in a Central 2B League game.

“We shot much better in the first half then we’ve done all year. That helps when you’re trying to get off to a fast start when you knock down some shots,” Centralia coach Kyle Donahue said. “We had balanced scoring from a lot of guys. We just got off to a fast start. They made a run towards the end but we were able to pull away.”
