No. 10 Kings make it 10 straight with win against Tigers

Lewis Cass turns back league rival Northwestern.


“We had a game plan that we implemented in one day and I thought the kids did a good job with the game plan, but you can’t give the ball to the other team 21 times. I thought we did a nice job defensively, but then some of those turnovers lead to easy baskets for them. It just makes life hard if you’re going to give the ball to the opposition that many times.”

Cass jumped to a 15-7 lead in the opening quarter, but Northwestern closed the quarter on a 12-0 run fueled by four 3-pointers, two each from Graham Ortmann and Blaine Brutus with Ortmann beating the buzzer for a 19-15 lead.

Northwestern kept the lead throughout the second quarter, but Keisling kept Cass in the game. He scored 13 points in the quarter, beating the halftime buzzer with a 3-pointer to bring the Kings within 32-30.

Ohman hit a pair of 3-pointers early in the third quarter to give the Kings a 37-34 lead and they went on for a 50-43 advantage at the close of the quarter.

Cass had a 58-54 lead with 3:00 left in the final quarter. Ortmann scored off a nice backdoor cut to bring the Tigers within 58-56 at 2:37 and after Ohman missed the front end of a one-and-bonus, the Tigers’ Logan Galbraith knotted the score with a layup at 2:00.

Ohman promptly made amends for his missed free throw by burying the go-ahead 3-pointer at 1:50.

Northwestern shot itself in the foot on each of its next two possessions. Ortmann missed the front end of a one-and-bonus at 1:35. After Cass’ Blake Hadley scored on a drive for a 63-58 lead at :55.9, the Tigers committed a turnover. Hadley went to the line at at :23.9 and made the first attempt. He missed the second, but teammate Ryan Bixler grabbed the board and was fouled. He made both attempts for a 66-58 lead.
