Clips from the Bears 85-62 win over the Cougars in a jam-packed Mount Shasta High School gymnasium Wednesday night, March 5.

Mount Shasta's 2014 boys basketball team is attempting to win the school's first Northern Section hoops championship since 1993.

Coach Cliff Blakely said he got everyone thinking about that goal for this season three years ago at the JV level. "Everyone thought I was nuts then," Blakely laughed after their 85-62 semifinal win over Weed on March 5. "They believed it tonight."

Blakely and Bears players expressed a similar thought when looking ahead to the March 7 championship game against Liberty Christian at Shasta College in Redding: If they play like they did in the semifinal, they like their chances.
