Another big win for the boys to go 4-0. Started the game a little tentative but the defense stepped up in the second quarter and held them to 4 points. The defensive intensity continued in the second half and it broke their will. The boys had 33 rebounds this game compared to 12 last game, to help take control of the game. The offense kept the pressure on by continue to attack the basket and with some fantastic passing setting up teammates, especially on fast breaks.
Nolan Waechter lead the way with 21 points, 5 steals, 4 rebounds and 4 assists. Anthony Robinson was also a load with 14 points & 6 rebounds. Jayden Nazario scored 11 points with a team high 7 rebounds. Nick Arra also had 7 rebounds, 3 steals and 6 points. Dom Lundberg scored 8 points, 3 rebounds and some lock down defense. Tyler Kitzberger chipped in with 4 points and 2 rebounds but also had some punishing box outs to keep their big man off the boards so Tyler’s teammates could corral the boards. Ethan Greco put in 2 points, got a board and an assist. Sam Hamidah got 3 boards and a bloody nose in the process battling their big guys. Zach Doell got a board and some good ball handling to help sweep Firelands.
