Red Robins show toughness, but fall in opener at Pulaski
space
The Antigo Red Robins boys basketball team encountered a tough test in its season opener Tuesday night, falling 71-66 at Pulaski.

Pulaski deployed a solid five-man starting unit, with all five players scoring in double figures and requiring very little bench support.

Second year Robin head coach Ivan Flannery knew his team was in for a fight from the opening tip.

“Pulaski is a very sound team, led by a coach with a state championship under his belt from 2013” Flannery said. “They were well prepared, a very cohesive and consistent unit.”

Antigo blasted out of the locker room, jumping out to an 11-2 lead, but was unable to maintain the momentum.

“We came out fast, got out to that good lead, but then had struggles maintaining the level of energy on defense,” Flannery evaluated. “I attribute that mostly to conditioning. We were getting tired and were not able to keep up the same level of intensity.”

Senior Tanner Resch led the Robins offense with 19 points and 10 rebounds. Logan Thomae scored 10. Eli Fleischman drained a trio of three-pointers off the bench for his nine points, and Alec Hotchkiss contributed nine as well.

The Antigo score sheet was rounded out by Nevin Cornelius with six, Connor Kolz and Elliott Orgeman both chipped in five, and Alex Samolinski had three.

“Eli's threes came at crucial times, and Connor really played a great game both offensively and defensively for us off the bench,” Flannery mentioned.

Junior guard Brock Egnarski paced the Raiders with 19 points.

Despite the loss, Flannery took away plenty of positives from the game, especially considering his guys had only one week of practice to prepare.

“All in all, it being the first game of the season, I was very proud of the guys and the way they battled,” he said. “We were right there in a nail-biter with a great team from a big school. We had chances to win the game ourselves, we just couldn't execute down the stretch. We have a lot to look at, but we can also be proud and keep our heads held high, the way we fought.”

Antigo has plenty of time to get back to the drawing board and polish up that conditioning, with a full week of practice before the next game action.

The Red Robins open the home, and Great Northern Conference, schedule when they host Medford on Friday, Dec. 6 at 7:15 p.m.
