In two games, Gustin combined for 64 points — including 12 3-pointers — 15 steals and one dunk. Gustin had 34 points in a 72-66 loss to top-ranked Skyview and then posted 30 points in the Huskies’ first-round win over Nampa.

GIRLS BASKETBALL

Raquelle Mouw, Bishop Kelly: The Knights won their first state championship in program history with three wins in last week’s tournament at Mountain View High. Mouw, a 5-foot-8 junior forward, finished with a combined 39 points, 18 rebounds and eight steals in victories over Moscow (51-26), Pocatello (51-24) and Century (50-40).

WRESTLING

CJ Olsen, Centennial: The senior helped the Patriots win their fourth consecutive 5A District Three team championship in dominant fashion. Olsen’s victory over DeVaughn Sapien in the 113-pound title match was considered an upset. Olsen finished the district tournament with a pin in the first round, a tech fall in the quarterfinals, a major decision in the semifinals and a 12-9 decision in the championship.
