Second-ranked Arnett scored the first eight points of the game and cruised to an easy 56-32 win over No. 12 Burlington in a first-round game Thursday of the Class B boys state basketball tournament at State Fair Arena.

Sophomore Ryne Friesen scored a game-high 21 points, hitting four 3-point baskets for Arnett. Tyler Tune, a 6-4 junior, scored 16 points and pulled down 17 rebounds for the Wildcats.

“Night in and night out, he is gong to rebound the ball and control the boards most of the time,” Arnett coach Allen Tune said of his son and star player.

“I thought Ryne stepped up and hit some big shots. Tyler's ball didn't fall early and man, he struggled from the outside.

“We moved him inside and he got some points in the paint. Then they had to double down which opened the outside back up for us to get some shots.”

Arnett (21-8) on the season, will meet Big Pasture in the semifinals at 9 a.m. Saturday in State Fair Arena. Big Pasture defeated Moyers, 66-64, earlier Thursday.
