Explosive second half spurs third straight win for Red Robins
space
Make it three in a row for the Antigo Red Robins boys basketball team, and by the way undefeated in the New Year, on the strength of a 67-52 victory over Northland Pines in the Sheldon Fieldhouse Monday night.

After a close first half concluded with Antigo down by five, the Robins offense exploded in the second half, blitzing the Eagles for 41 points and steadily pulling away for a convincing win.

The victory pulls the Robins' season record to 4-6, and now above .500 in the Great Northern Conference at 3-2, good for second place.

Things are looking bright after a difficult start, when Antigo opened the campaign with four straight losses, and headed into the holiday break at 1-6.

Antigo head coach Ivan Flannery is feeling that positive mojo, as his team looks at a challenging road trip.

“We got out to a big lead in the second half and never looked back tonight,” Flannery said. “I'm really proud of the guys, now we go on the road with a really tough stretch ahead of us.”

That stretch is filled with three conference road games: Friday at Mosinee, Tuesday at Merrill, and next Friday at GNC leader Medford. The Robins do not return to their friendly home floor until Friday Jan. 31 against Lakeland.

The revival story has largely revolved around the trio of senior leaders, and that was the case again Monday night. Tanner Resch was a beast down low, leading all scorers with 24 points. Dual threat guards Nevin Cornelius and Alec Hotchkiss combined for 29 points.

Perhaps, however, the larger tale is about the Antigo defense. The Robins held Northland Pines star Ryan Peterson, who averages 23.3 points per game, to 11 points Monday.

Northland Pines falls to 6-6 on the season, but only 1-4 in the GNC. The Robins are looking up at Medford, perfect in the league at 5-0.

Flannery believes his team is ready for the stretch of road challenges.

“We're gonna put in some work this week, really get back at it,” he said. “I'm really proud of the guys and the way they fought tonight, the way they stepped up the intensity in the second half.”
