Red Robin boys kick off season with massive home win over Three Lakes|
“This was a very good start with a lot of inexperienced players,” Antigo head coach Jesse Shaw said. “There are many new faces on the team this year and to start with a home win is good.”
Hosting Three Lakes in a non-conference boys basketball game, the Robins stomped the Bluejays 87-21 Tuesday at Sheldon Field House.
The uniforms may look the same but the players have changed as Jack Lund led the squad with a game high 19 points with the majority coming on 3-point shots.
“Jack did a very nice job for us tonight,” Shaw said. “He was not only hitting his threes but also coming in down low to make a double scoring threat.”
Lund was not alone in the double-digit range as Blake Below hit 18 and Cassius Noskowiak had 15.
Threes were pouring down for Antigo as the team made 19 of its 28 attempts. In addition to Lund, Coach Shaw noted the impressive performance by John Monk and Braxton Resch as the pair came off the bench to hit three threes apiece making up their identical scores of nine points.
Others hitting the basket for Antigo were Justin Hickman with nine and Luke Osborne with eight.
Overall Antigo was consistent with its shooting. During the first half the Robins were 20 for 29 in field goals for 68 percent and 12 for 19 in the second half for 63 percent.
The Robins defensive pressure applied to the Bluejays restricted them in going 9 for 13 in total shooting efforts on the night.
Gavin Maney hit a team high 11 points for Three Lakes. Kyle Qween added five, Taylor Gensler four and Skylar Walkowski two.
“Our defensive did a good job for us tonight in deflections and steals which allowed several easy baskets,” Shaw added. “Now we need three very good days of practice leading up to next week’s contest versus Merrill.”
Antigo will stay at home on Tuesday as Merrill makes the trip over. Game time is set for 7:30 p.m.
