TROY — The Grangeville boys’ basketball team came up short in an Idaho Class 2A district title 3-game series Tuesday, dropping its second consecutive contest to St. Maries, this one 48-25 at Troy High School.

The Lumberjacks’ Brett Stancil hit six 3-pointers on his way to 20 points as St. Maries (18-5) kept extending its cushion in each period. The Lumberjacks held leads of 15-5, 25-7 and 38-18 at the quarter breaks.

“We had some foul trouble early in the game and fell behind,” Grangeville coach Larson Anderson said. “So now we have three days to prepare for Saturday. ... Its gonna be a good battle for us.”

The Bulldogs (10-12) will get another opportunity to make the state tournament Saturday, where they will compete against the loser of Wendell and Declo in a play-in at 2 p.m. at McCall High School.
