Boys win final tilt of tourney

The GSL Panthers boys’ cage squad easily handled Prairie Seeds Academy Tuesday, Dec. 30, winning 87-50 for seventh place in the Tartan Holiday Tournament.
While Coach Robb DeCorsey had expressed frustration with his team’s ball-handling skills in the first two bouts of the tournament, he felt they did better with the ball against Prairie Seeds.
While the Panthers gave up the ball too much in their first two games, they shared well in the final tilt.
“We had over 20 assists; we passed really well, we shared the ball well,” said DeCorsey.
The other highlight of the tournament — Keaton Anderson was named to the all-tournament team.
The Panthers out-scored Prairie Seeds nearly two to one in each half of the Dec. 30 game with 42 points to their opponents’ 42 in the first frame and 44 to 27 in the second.
Garrett Ober poured in 23 points (16 in the first half alone), while Mason Goettl contributed 18, including three treys.
Scott Landes chipped in 10; Teddy Petersen, eight; and Anderson, six.
Ober also paced the Panthers in rebounds, with eight of the team’s 32, while Jon Richer and Mason Ahlbrecht had five each.
And the Panthers did share the ball well, with Petersen and Anderson dishing out four assists each, while Goettl and Ahlbrecht each had three.
The Panthers got back into their regular season at Hutchinson Tuesday, and will host New London-Spicer (3-6) Friday night, before traveling to Litchfield Tuesday, Jan. 13.
