Kamitomo lifts Ferris over struggling Bears team

Posted: Updated:

SPOKANE, Wash. - Taylor Kamitomo is back to full health. And that's not good for other teams in the GSL. The junior forward for Ferris scored a game-high 23 points, lifting his team to a 69-50 win over Central Valley.

Kamitomo also grabbed 12 rebounds for the Saxons (8-5, 6-2 GSL). Riley Stockton added 18 points for Ferris and Connor Halliday had 16.

The Bears, sitting at second-to-last in the GSL, struggled to contain Ferris' offense and dropped another league game. The Bears' lone win in conference play was against East Valley on Jan. 15.
