After forcing four turnovers in the first three minutes the Roncalli boys basketball team jumped out to a 4-0 lead and never trailed en rout to a 64-37 Olympian Conference home win over Hilbert on Thursday night.
Leading 14-6 after the first quarter, Roncalli (3-0, 2-0 OC) allowed Hilbert (0-3, 0-2 OC) to cut it to within 22-18, but the Jets’ man-to-man defense became too much for the Wolves.
Roncalli responded to Hilbert’s run with a 12-2 run of its own to finish the first half and lead 34-20 entering halftime.
Seniors Nate Lassila and Isaiah Bessert each scored 11 points in the first half with Bessert at one point making three straight 3-pointers.
The Jets opened the second half with a Nick Stelzer 3-pointer and went on a 15-0 run to make it 51-25 at the end of the third quarter.
Lassila finished with a team-high 18 point while Bessert added 14. Stelzer additionally contributed 13 points as the Jets outrebounded Hilbert 7-1 on the offensive end.
The game ended too late for a complete box score to be included in today’s print edition of the Herald Times Reporter.
Roncalli next will play Milwaukee Riverside on Saturday at the Terry Porter Classic in Milwaukee.
