Prep roundup: Pacelli boys beat Royals


WISCONSIN RAPIDS – A minor halftime adjustment was just what the Pacelli boys needed to get on track offensivly.

The Cardinals went to their post players for an offensive spark and they delived a 61-41 nonconference victory over Assumption on Saturday.

“Our perimeter shots weren’t falling, so we went inside to tray and take advantage of our size advantage,” Pacelli coach Brad Rutta said. “It wasn’t a huge adjustment, but it worked to our advantage. When our shots starting going in on the inside it opened up the perimeter.”

Pacelli led 24-16 at the half and rolled up 23 points in the third quarter to take a comfortable lead into the final period.

“They are big and we didn’t match up well with them,” Roaysl coach Gary Weisenbeck said. “We closed it to 11 points in the fourth quarter, but we ran out of gas in the final two minutes.

“This is goood competition for us because they’re a really solid team,” Weisenbeck added. “It’s great compeitition and a great rivalry, that’s why we keep playing Pacelli.

The Cardinals were led by Brett O’Sullivan’s 20-point effort, while Isaac Elliott chipped in with 15. Zach Linzmeier led Assumption with 14 points and Chase Lamp added 10.
