The Barlow boys basketball team went unchallenged in the first round of the Barlow Trail Classic by beating Willamette 53-39 on Thursday.
The Bruins ended the first quarter on a nine-point run and expanded to a double digit lead late in the second quarter after Hunter Roeder put down alley-oops on back-to-back plays.
Barlow carried a double-digit lead throughout the second half, putting the game out of reach when Roeder returned to the court and hit his first three shots of the fourth quarter.
The Bruins advance to play Skyview, Wash, in the semifinals at 7 p.m. Friday. Skyview squeezed past Madison 61-60.
