South Wasco County’s Garrett Olson is usually good for 25-30 points on any given night.
The key is getting another player to shoulder some of the scoring load.
Olson finished with 22 points, and Kal Bailey busted loose for a career-high 17 points, 11 in the second half, in the Redsides’ 50-39 win over Mitchell-Spray Friday in Mitchell.
Olson had 12 points, Bailey reeled off six and Ben Birman dropped five points in the first half to give the Redsides a 25-15 halftime lead.
As part of a 25-24 second-half output, Olson tallied 10 points, Bailey had 11, and the tandem of Birman and Tanner Davis scored two points apiece.
For the game, the Redsides (3-10 overall, 1-2 league) racked up 21 field goals, two 3-pointers, and made good on 6 of 11 free throws.
Birman finished with seven points, and Tuff Wilson and Davis got two points each to follow up Olson and Bailey.
