Caleb Diggs poured in a game-high 26 points, fueling Douglas’ 63-54 win over Belle Fourche in Black Hills Conference boys basketball action Friday at Ed Petranek Armory.

Joining Diggs in double-figure point production for the Patriots were Austin Shaffer with 13 and Matt Vinson with 11.

“That’s three games in a row where we’ve had three players in double figures,” said Douglas coach Travis Miller. “It’s a nice luxury. The defense can’t key on anybody.

“Our first half rebounding got us the lead.” Douglas held a 40-24 halftime lead. The Patriots sank six treys in the opening half.

Jordan Mitchell topped Belle Fourche, 3-12 overall, with 23 points.

Levi Grubb chipped in 15 markers.

“Douglas is a nice shooting team,” said Belle coach Nick Redden. “We missed a lot a layups the whole game. We made a nice comeback in the second half.”

The Broncs cut the deficit to 61-54 in the final minute.

Belle Fourche hosts Spearfish Thursday.
