SPOKANE — The Gonzaga Prep boys basketball team defeated Richland 69-45 in the opening round of the 2020 Class 4A District 8 (GSL/MCC) playoffs Wednesday night.

The Bombers jumped out to an early 7-5 lead but the Bullpups picked up the defensive intensity and went on a 35-9 run to close out the first half. Gonzaga Prep never looked back. Hodges Flemming led all scorers with 19 points while Will Reeves (12 points), Liam Lloyd (11), and Aiden Von Buchwaldt (11) provided a balanced scoring attack for Gonzaga Prep. Jacob Schuster led Richland with 11 points.

No. 3 Gonzaga Prep will travel to No. 2 Chiawana on Saturday in a semifinal game, while Richland will host Ferris on Saturday in a loser-out game.
