Colusa takes down Sutter at home Bell records second double-double in three games

Colusa’s senior forward Graeson Bell turned in a 27-point, 11-rebound performance for his second double-double of the season — and his second in three games — to help push the RedHawks past the visiting Sutter Huskies for a 66-61 victory.

Bell added 6 assists and a steal and finished 15-for-17 at the line in a performance that head coach Brian Davis called “senior-ish.”

For much of the night, the RedHawks half-court offense ran through Bell, who was able to consistently draw contact while attacking the basket.

“We want to get him going to the basket, and get to the free throw line. Now he realizes that the free throw line is that much more important,” Davis said. “For everybody, it’s to the rack first, and then options from there — we just take what the defense gives us.”

Bell also fed the ball to his teammates, twice finding Will Kalisuch — once on an inbound pass and once after following his own shot for an offensive rebound — for an open three. Kalisuch was the RedHawks second-leading scorer with 17 points.

Bell played particularly well in the final stretch of the game, posting a nine points, three assists, and a steal in the fourth quarter.

He scored the first four points of the fourth quarter from the free throw line and expanded Colusa’s lead to 11 — tied for the largest margin of the contest.

After a three-point play from Sutter’s Todd Carr and two more Sutter points off of a Colusa turnover, the Huskies had quickly cut the lead to six and appeared to set the stage for a late comeback.

From that point, a handful of Colusa players chipped in to turn back a potential Huskies comeback. Junior guard Bobby Bill had four points off the bench for Colusa. Seniors Danny Bedolla and Lucas Davison each added two points and Kalisuch added three points, all off of Bell assists.

With an eight-point lead and the clock winding down, the Huskies were forced to intentionally foul. Already in the double-bonus, the RedHawks got the ball into Bell’s hands, who closed out the game from the free throw line.

“He kind of put the whole team on his back, and we just rode him from there,” Davis said.
