Oregon Tech held the College of Idaho to 4-of-33 shooting from 3-point range in a 79-58 victory in the quarterfinals of the Cascade Conference men’s basketball tournament Wednesday, ending the Coyotes’ season.

Lavar Moore scored a game-high 24 points as the Owls (23-8) handed head coach Dan Miles his 1,040th career win in his 45th and final season as OIT head coach.

Dominique Jordan led the Coyotes (17-13) with 16 points — all in the second half — but it wasn’t enough to erase a 19-point halftime deficit.

Joey Nebeker (Melba High) had 13 points to finish the season with a 20.7 points per game scoring average — the first Coyote to average more than 20 a night since the 1997-98 season (Everett Ratleff).
