Nikki Corbett provided the Papermakers with a double dose of baskets and rebounds during the Nike Interstate Shootout, a four-day tournament at Lake Oswego High School.

It’s always nice to wrap up a tournament with a victory, even if it is not in the championship game.

After facing their fourth team from Oregon in the Nike Interstate Shootout, the Camas High School girls basketball team earned a satisfying 46-30 victory against Lakeridge Sunday at Lake Oswego High School.

Sophomores Brenna Khaw and Nikki Corbett filled the stat sheet like they had all week long. Khaw delivered 11 points, 11 rebounds, seven assists and three blocked shots. Corbett added nine points and 11 rebounds. The Papermakers rolled out to a 17-6 lead after the first quarter. Camas also outscored Lakeridge 9-1 in the third quarter.

The win gives the Papermakers some momentum as they prepare for Friday’s league opener against defending 4A state champion Skyview. Tip off is at 7 p.m., at Skyview High School.

Corbett scored 18 points and grabbed 10 rebounds to help the Papermakers beat Sunset 57-50 Friday. Sierra Brown added 12 points, and Khaw racked up seven points, 10 assists, three steals and two blocks.

Corbett scored another 16 points Saturday, but Camas stumbled in the fourth quarter and lost to Pendleton 41-32. West Salem jumped on the Papermakers 20-5 in the first quarter Thursday and never looked back, winning 55-41. Khaw led Camas with 14 points, and Corbett added 11 points and nine rebounds. Brown had eight points.
