IF you were there you saw some pretty impressive individual efforts and a tale of two different quarters in the second half. Brossart built a 12 point lead at 48-36 after three quarters and the Breds came roaring back, feeding off of our turnovers to outscore us 24-13 in the fourth quarter to just miss. 3 of 10 shooting from the free-throw line nearly contributed to our demise. Not pretty, but exciting.
For Harrison County, I really like sophomore Tyler Harris. He played the majority of the JV game (which the Mustangs won 32-29) and then came back and played a whale of a game in the varsity event, leading the Breds with 16 points. Long, lean and athletic, with a summer spent in the weight room everybody in the region will know his name next year.
Not impressed by Zach Hamberg who led the Mustangs with 18 points including three 3s and stood in and took a pair of charges??? Don't know what more you can ask of him. How about sophomore Bryan Duffy??? 5'10" and 205 pounds - solid as a rock - imposed his will on the Breds and scored a career high 13 points tonight. Not impressed with Bryce Kremer, who came off of the bench and knocked down four 3's and scored 17 points??? How about Bryson Wieland and Bryce Donnelly who BOTH played with broken fingers - Wieland on his shooting hand and Donnelly on his left hand??? I'm giving these two an E for Effort.
Understand also that in some senior laden programs these two teams would be the JV teams. Both have two seniors and a plethora of sophomores who contribute. Both are building, learning, and gaining experience this year.
Again, sorry we didn't meet your expectations tonight. We'll try to do better the next time.
