Nick Backus comes up big in the second quarter for Bear River on Saturday which lifted his team over San Juan High School 58-53 in a consolation bracket game. Three consecutive days is a lot of basketball.

The Bruins went to Backus as both Justin Beskeen and Espinoza were in foul trouble most of the contest.

Beskeen was selected to the 71st Kendall Arnett All-tournament team.
