The fifth-ranked Billings Skyview boys handed No. 4 Billings West its second loss in three days, as the Falcons defeated West inside the Golden Dome 52-41.
Skyview did it primarily on the defense end on Thursday night, holding West to just 14-first half points. That allowed Skyview to stay in the game, as the Falcons didn't make a field goal in the second quarter and mustered just three free throws to fall behind 14-12 at the break.
Skyview grabbed the lead in the third quarter and never looked back, getting a pair of big baskets from sophomore Tayshaun Williams down the stretch, including the dagger 3-pointer with less than 50 seconds to play that put the Falcons up seven.
Skyview improves to 8-6 with the win and drops West to 8-7.
