Boys hoops roundup: North cruises in own tourney

By

Davis Larson poured in 27 points, Joseph Hameister added 15 and the Sheboygan North boys basketball team cruised to a 76-60 win at home over Sturgeon Bay Friday night in North’s own Raider Invite.

“It’s nice to have an inside game to go with the outside game as well,” North coach Tom Desotell said after the win, which preserves the Golden Raiders’ perfect 10-0 record this year. His players shot “just average” against Sturgeon Bay, he said, hitting seven of their 26 3-point shots.

But Lasron lit up North’s scoreboard, adding 10 rebounds to his blistering scoring stats to register a double-double.

“Davis Larson was just so good — so good for us,” Desotell said. The 6-foot-4 freshman forward shot 9-of-11 from the floor and was 75 percent from the free throw line.

The Raiders’ bench players also came up big in the winning effort, said Desotell, who nodded specifically to players like Lucas Haese, Noah Stengel, Jared Parise and Kevin Lang.

The win keeps North perfect coming into tonight’s game against Milwaukee Pius XI — a team Desotell said he isn’t overlooking after the parochial school beat Oostburg in the same tournament on Friday.

“We tell our kids to keep things in perspective,” Desotell said of his team’s undefeated record. “Our toughest games are always the next game.”

Kimberly 69,
Sheb. South 37

The Papermakers (4-7) used their defense to get rolling, forcing numerous first-half turnovers to take a 23-point halftime lead over the Redwings (0-10).

Bryce Ebben and David Klink both scored 17 points to lead Kimberly. Garrett Hoffman added 12 points.

Kiel 47, Valders 40

Terren Driscoll and Jacob Winkel combined for 32 points, and a stingy defensive performance in the third quarter helped Kiel notch its third win of the season.

“They went, I believe, a seven-minute stretch without scoring,” Kiel coach Jamie Arenz said of Valders in the third quarter, when Arenz’s own players leapt ahead from a halftime deficit to capture the game’s momentum.

Zack Goedeke scored a game-high 19 points for Valders, and Ryan Jirschele added 10, but it wasn’t enough to stifle Driscoll and Winkel, who scored 16 points apiece.

“They played a variety of zones, and we were able to kind of exploit it and knock down some perimeter jump shots,” Arenz said, noting early success shooting from the outside opened up looks inside.

Kiel (3-7) trailed 23-20 at halftime, but defensive adjustments limited Valders (5-4) to just four third-quarter points, opening the way for the Raiders’ comeback.

Kiel — Driscoll 16, J. Winkel 16, Woods 6, Ca. Voelker 6, Meunier 3. 3-pt: Driscoll 3, Ca. Voelker 2. FT: 8-15. Fouls: 12.

Sheb. Falls 53,
Win. Luth. Aca. 38

Jacob Tenpas and Jake Hucke combined for 24 points — they registered an even dozen apiece — to help the Falcons notch their seventh win of the season.

A big second-quarter performance helped in the win; Sheboygan Falls led just 11-9 after eight minutes, but the Falcons’ advantage swelled to 32-16 by halftime.

Winn. Luth. Aca….9 7 9 13 — 38

Sheboygan Falls….11 21 11 10 — 53

Lomira 51,
Random Lake 48

The Rams cut an eight-point deficit with a minute-and-a-half remaining to one, but couldn’t get over the hump in the non-conference loss at home.

“Our kids never quit,” coach Joe Stroede said. “The kids played hard.”

For Random (3-6), Aaron Rathke had 15 points, nine rebounds and four assists while Alex Rathke added eight points and seven boards.

Lomira (5-3) was led by Sawyer Hoff and Mason Sterr, who each scored 12 points.

Lomira…10 17 8 16 — 51

Kenosha St. Joe’s 68, Sheb. Lutheran 61

Jacob Jurss poured in 20 points, but it was not enough as the Crusaders (6-3) fell in the championship game of the Lake Country Lutheran tournament.

Chris Madden led St. Joe’s (8-2) with 17 points.

Sheb. Lutheran…18 8 11 24 — 61
