McNary boys hoops rebounds at Forest Grove

McNary boys basketball got back in the win column on Tuesday night on the road at Forest Grove High School.

Three days after dropping the home opener to David Douglas High School on Dec. 9, McNary traveled to Forest Grove and came home with a 68-49 win.

Brody Roth led the Celtics with 23 points, going 10-for-15 from the floor. Roth also led with 7 rebounds, and added in 3 assists. 

Steven Adams had 16 points, while Jando Gonzalez had 14. 

As a team, the Celtics shot nearly 53% from the field, the first game they’ve been over the 50% mark this season. They had averaged 48% through the first three games.

Despite the accurate shooting, Tuesday was the lowest scoring night of the season so far for the Celtics, who lead the Central Valley Conference in points per game at 71. They’ve also only allowed a conference leading 48 points per game. 

The Celtics will end the week with a pair of games. First they host McMinnville High School on Dec. 16 at 7 p.m. Then, on Saturday, Dec. 17, they’ll face Summit High School at the Moda Center in Portland at 3:30 p.m.
