Comments by Clark Swerdan:
"We played our best game of the season tonight! We had some nice runs in the first half but Carson kept answering them & stayed in the game.
But the second half we just took over & played the way we were capable of! They never made a serious run in the second half.
We played really good defense, rebounded really well and hit a lot of timely shots. Then we moved the ball around nicely and got a lot of easy baskets. We finished with a season high 19 asts (28 made FGs).
7 guys scored at least 3 points for us. That’s the second consecutive game we’ve had really balanced scoring (won at Vestaburg on Wednesday 71-58).
Kam hit 4 3s & battled foul trouble a little bit. Bo gave us great mins of the bench, in his best game of the year.
This was a great team win! I couldn’t be prouder of my guys. We have lost a couple of close games this year, where we were leading most of the game. But there was no doubt in the second half tonight!
This is the first time we’ve beat Carson City since they joined our league in 2012/13 season. Snapped a 15 game losing streak! That’s something to be proud of! They’ve won or shared the league title for 4 straight years.
We are now 5-5 (5-3 in the MSAC). We host Harrison on Monday.
Coleman JV also won 51-31. Konner Carbeno has 11 pts & Ty Klopf 9 pts.
