Klamath Union boys basketball beats Mazama, 46-44

The Klamath Union boys basketball team swept the season series versus Mazama with a Wednesday victory at Pel Court, 46-44.

The win helps KU maintain its grip on the second spot in the Skyline Conference.

It was the final regular season home game of the season for senior's Hayden Smith, Tony Ortiz, Javan Zumwalt, Tarence Anderson, Alexis Perdoma, Dashel Geraud and Wayce Saluskin.

If the Pelicans can win their final two games of the season, two away games against Henley and Hidden Valley, they have an opportunity to make it to the state playoffs. All the senior players under head coach Ed Case have had a brief time to play alonside of each other. Ortiz joined the basketball program as a sophomore and Saluskin is in his first season as a Pelican.

Zumwalt and Anderson have been playing together since grade school.

"We were coming off a bad loss (to Phoenix). We beat them (Mazama) last time and had confidence and were thinking that we should win this game," Zumwalt said. "It is tough. It has not hit me yet as a senior but it is going to eventually. It is exciting to possibly end my last game here with a win. It is all love between the team. We understand what it takes to be a good team and win games. I am glad to call them all my brothers."
