Hot-shooting Phoenix ends Sweet Home's basketball season

Phoenix came to town with a hot hand Friday night and hit a lot of shots early, including six three-pointers, to build an insurmountable lead against their hosts in boys basketball to end the Huskies' season in their state play-in game.

The Pirates exited with a 64-51 win.

Trailing 8-7 early on, Phoenix got busy and started by pulling ahead 9-8 on a shot by Logan Jenkins with a couple of minutes left on the clock. Sweet Home's offense went cold at that point, and the Pirates followed with three back-to-back threes to lead 20-8 at the end of the quarter.

Phoenix extended its lead to 36-18...
