Cass beats Pioneer 80-43 in consolation game

Lewis Cass’ experience was too much for the youth of Pioneer as the Kings won 80-43 in the consolation game of the Logansport Savings Bank Tournament held at the Berry Bowl on Friday.

The Kings shot 55.7 percent from the field (34 of 61), while only having nine turnovers. On the other hand, Pioneer shot 35.1 percent (13 of 37) from the field, and had 20 turnovers.

“This is a hard one to come back from when you play a hard-fought game that we did against Logan, and then play in the consolation game,” Cass coach Jon Kitchel said. “The people here saw what we are made out of. They work completely hard and extremely unselfish. This would have been a game where you easily pad your stats. Our guys don’t do that. They look for the open guys. It was a good win for us.”

Cass (2-1) had four players in double figures. The Kings were led by Austin Keisling with 19 points, followed by Jake Martin (13), Ryan Bixler (12) and Blake Hadley (11).

“We got Austin back [Friday],” Kitchel added. “Hadley had a really good tournament. He made the all-tournament team. We had some guys that came off the bench, and really did a nice job. Destin Irwin was a real spark plug. Evan Ohman had a nice game. Martin came in there, and knocked down some big 3s. He is a very, very good shooter, and against teams that [play] zone [against] us this year, he is going to be quite a weapon for us. It was overall a good team effort, and when you play hard good things are going to happen.”

It was much the opposite for first-year Pioneer coach Austin Cowley, whose Panthers fell to 0-3 on the young season.

“We try coming into the game with the goals and objectives of low turnovers, and limiting offensive rebounds. We have some team goals, and we didn’t meet them [Friday],” Cowley said. “But that is a lot of credit to how Lewis Cass plays, and how coach Kitchel has them ready. A lot to say about Keisling and Hadley, and how they get after you defensively. They were stronger in the post than what I thought.”

Pioneer was led by Caleb Kindley with 14 points and five rebounds. Brad Biggs added a double-double with 12 points and 10 rebounds and was also named to the all-tournament team.
