OGDEN -- With members of the Scots 1986 state 3-A championship team in attendance, losing to cross-town rival Ogden High would not have set well with Ben Lomond.
In their final regular-season home game Wednesday, the Scots five seniors went out in style -- overcoming a five-point, six-turnover third quarter -- with a 49-38 Region 11 victory and a season sweep of Ogden.
Ben Lomond (12-9 overall, 8-3 league) converted 8 of 11 fourth-quarter free throws in a 19-point quarter.
"We're aiming for state and it was cool to have them here watching us," said Scots senior point guard Sterling Brandley. "We look at them as role models since they're the only team from Ben Lomond to win state (in boys basketball)."
The 18-year-old Brandley, a four-year starter, scored 14 points on 5-of-9 shooting with five rebounds, seven assists and four steals.
"It's my responsibility to get everybody involved offensively," he said. "My biggest role is to control the tempo, whether it's fast or slower, while being a team leader on the floor.
"I love being the point guard; it's my favorite position," Brandley said. "I like being able to call the plays, be the right-hand man of coach (Ryan) Wilcox and help run the show."
Josh Hardin rang up a double-double with 21 points, going 6 of 15 from the floor, with 10 boards and two assists for Ben Lomond, which held the Tigers under 40 points in both games this season.
"We look to our defense first; we take pride in our defense," Brandley said. "If we do that, everything else seems to fall into place. This wasn't our best defensive game, but it was one of our better ones."
The Scots shot 42.9 percent (15 of 35) -- 33.3 percent (2 of 6) from 3-point range -- outrebounded Ogden 30-23 and committed 15 turnovers.
Sage Eastburn had nine points on 3-of-6 shooting with five boards, one assist, two steals and a block for Ben Lomond, which had 13 assists and swiped eight steals.
"If we take care of business on Friday, then we'll get a home game in the 3-A playoffs," Brandley said. "We'll enjoy this tonight, then get back to practice tomorrow and get ready for Stansbury.
"It's always good to beat your rival and Ogden is a good team," he said. "A sweep is especially nice since it means you beat them on their home court."
The Tigers' Spencer Smith, the No. 3 scorer in the state 3-A ranks at 23.1 points per game coming in with 52 3-pointers, was limited to a season-low five points and no triples.
"We threw multiple defenses at him and switched it up," Brandley said. "We wanted to keep pressure on Smith because he is a good shooter and can get hot."
Twin brother McKay Smith had a team-high 10 points for Ogden (8-11, 6-5), which had its season high three-game winning streak snapped and is 6-3 in its last nine.
The Tigers shot 34.8 percent (16 of 46), were 0.6 percent (1 of 16) from deep, had three blocks and committed 15 turnovers.
Larry Rodriguez added eight points for Ogden, which got outscored 19-11 during the fourth quarter.
