Cascade took a 30-19 lead into halftime as Suter drilled a 3-pointer from the right wing with just under seven seconds remaining in the second quarter.
The Clovers got as close as seven points in the second half, but never was able to get within striking distance near the end of the game.
Cloverdale’s 6-6 junior center Zachary Dorman led all scorers with 18 points. He was able to get some steals for easy layups and he hurt the Cadets at times with his size.
But Cascade’s duo of senior Jake Canaday (6-4) and freshman Zac Butler (6-3) limited the Clovers’ big man damage in the post.
“Both of those guys worked hard in the post, getting where they needed to be,” DuBois said. “If they don’t work hard, then the rest of us can’t help them as a team. It started with them and ended with us as a team.”
Canaday added 10 points and Butler contributed eight off the bench. Senior Eric Bobadilla scored nine points.
Cascade advances to face 11-9 South Putnam at 6 p.m. Friday. In the Cadets’ fourth game of the season on Dec. 7, they fell to the Eagles 49-38.
DuBois knows what his team will have to do in the rematch.
“South Putnam is big and strong and we’ll have to match that intensity,” he said. “They are physical, so just like tonight, they have a couple big kids and we have to match that physicality and intensity and we should be OK.”
