Schlader connects for 8 threes at Nezperce
Beau Schlader connected on 8 three-pointers and scored 30 points to lead the Prairie Pirates to a 65-59 win at Nezperce Friday, Jan. 21.
Weíre almost certain the 8 three-pointers is a school record. Beau Schlader defends Nezperceís Jonathan Riggers. In the background are Justin and Devin Schmidt.
For the second straight night Prairie avenged one of their only two losses of the season and in the process won their 12th straight game since opening the season with a pair of losses.
Nezperceís defense seemed more worried about Devin Schmidt going off big against them allowing Schlader plenty of open looks from the outside.
After Nezperce opened the scoring with a 3-pointer, Schlader connected on 3 straight shots from beyond the arc to give Prairie a 9-3 lead. He added another in the opening quarter and David Johnson scored twice inside as Prairie took a 16-11 lead.

Nezperce then responded with 5 straight points to cut the lead to 18-16.
Schlader then connected on another trey, his 5th of the half, and Devin Schmidt scored twice inside before Schlader hit his 6th trey of the half to cap a 10-0 run and give Prairie a 28-16 lead.
Nezperce was able to pull within 8 by halftime at 31-23.
Schlader opened the third quarter with his 7th trey but Nezperce responded with 6 straight points to cut the lead to 34-29.
Prairie was able to respond every time Nezperce tried to rally and pushed the lead to 49-38 at the end of the third quarter as Schlader beat the buzzer with his 8th triple of the game.
Devin Schmidt comes to a jump stop at the low block as he looks to shoot against Nezperce.In the fourth quarter Schlader didnít even attempt a 3 as the game situation called for the Pirates to work the clock and look for lay-ups as they looked to hold off the Indians.
Nezperce was able to cut the lead to 5 at 54-49 and 63-58 but could get no closer.
Johnson scored 3 baskets inside and Justin Schmidt added 2 more baskets while Prairie converted 4 of 7 free throws to hold the Indians at bay.
For his 30 points Schlader was 9 for 14 from the field, including 8 for 12 from long distance, and 4 for 6 at the line. Johnson added 12 points on 6 for 8 shooting. Seth Guyer scored 8, Devin Schmidt 7, Justin Schmidt 6 and Brock Heath 2.
