The Spanish Springs boys basketball team found itself facing a 21-point deficit after the first eight minutes of its tournament tilt Friday night and things only got worse from there.

Skyview, Utah put a hurt on Spanish Springs, handing the Sparks school a 70-24 loss in the second day of play at the Elko Red Lion Tournament.

Skyview ran out to a 23-2 lead after the first period and never let up. It extended its edge to 41-9 by halftime.

The Utah prep powerhouse has three players being recruited by Division I college programs, two of whom have already signed. It looked like it too. Skyview outscored Spanish Springs in all four quarters. It led 60-18 after three periods en route to the 46-point final margin.

“They’re good,” Spanish Sprigns coach Kyle Penney said of Skyview. “They’re better in all categories. We couldn’t do much against them and we didn’t shoot the ball real well. We were 10-of-49 from the field. We had some open looks early on and didn’t get them to fall. “I look at what they’re made up and what we’re made up of. We don’t belong on the same court. But I wish we would’ve competed and challenged them a little more. We were really timid and tentative. I’m more than certain they would’ve beaten us even if we were being aggressive too, but we didn’t give them a shot.”

Spanish Springs (4-2) wraps up tourney play at Elko today at 2:30 p.m. against Preston, Idaho.
