Next man up! That’s the mantra of teams working through injuries and illness. Matt McPheeters led a makeshift Challengers lineup with a career-high 19 in a 63-43 home romp versus South Umpqua.

Senior Layne Collom- the Challengers second-leading scorer added 18- including three three-pointers. Cascade Christian knocked down eight treys- including two from Ryan Crowl- who scored eight off the bench- and Kiegan Schaan- who supplied nine second half points and strong work on the boards.

With a conference record of 6-2, the 5th-ranked Challengers remain in a three-way tie for first with St. Mary’s and Sutherlin. Cascade hosts Douglas on Tuesday, and travels to St. Mary’s Friday, in what is always a slugfest (figuratively speaking, usually). The Bulldogs close out their regular season against the Lancers and Trojans. The Crusaders visit Brookings-Harbor in what could be a rugged matchup Tuesday before playing the Challengers.

Cascade Christian is without the services of Cody Reece (concussion protocol), Nathan Spurlock (sprained ankle), and Donminic Lewis (illness).
