After trailing early on, the Roncalli boys basketball team found its offensive rhythm in the second quarter and stormed back with a strong second-half effort to defeat host Hilbert 75-55 on Thursday night.
Hilbert led by as many as 10 points in the first quarter as, after Roncalli’s Nate Lassila’s 3-pointer opened the game, the Wolves made an 8-0 run and controlled the rest of the quarter.
A Sam Scheer 3-pointer at the end of the frame made the Jets’ deficit 23-19 at the end of the frame.
With 5:24 left in the first half, the Jets took their first lead since the Lassila 3-pointer and at halftime Roncalli (10-3, 7-3 Olympian Conference) led 36-31. The Jets did not trail the rest of the way.
Lassila and Nick Stelzer each had nine points in the first half while Scheer added eight. Hilbert’s Spencer Schulz — who did not play in the first meeting between the two teams, a 64-37 Roncalli home win — scored 18 points in the first half and finished the game with 24.
At the end of the third quarter Roncalli led 54-45 as the win snapped a two-game losing streak for the Jets, who committed only seven turnovers in the game and shot 6-of-6 from the free-throw line. Hilbert committed 17 turnovers and were 11-of-14 from the free-throw line.
Lassila had a game-high 25 points while Scheer chipped in 17 points. Also for the Jets, Stelzer had 15 points.
Valders 63, St. Mary Central 33
Valders jumped out to a 17-10 at the end of the first quarter and outscored host St. Mary Central 39-14 in the second half for the win.
Forrest Fenlon had a game-high 21 points for Valders while teammate Ryan Jirschele added 14 points.
No St. Mary Central player made it to double figures in the game as the Zephyrs were 4-of-6 from the free-throw line while Valders was 7-of-8.
The Vikings had 10 3-pointers in the game — six by Fenlon — while the Zephyrs had just three.
