Rebels continue to rumble

Prologue
Off to #3AAAA Champlin Park for a non-conference game with Spring Lake Park.  Surprised I didn't see more notables in the building.  But we did have former Minnesota assistant Ron Jirsa in the building.  Nice hot dog and 20 oz of Red Powerade on the concessions menu.

Game Time
The threes are flying early.  Collin Price countered by Ian Smith.  TC Robinson off the screen and roll countered by Jeremy Johnson from the left corner.  Its Johnson again to end an 8-0 Champlin Park run that gives them their first lead.  Eric Curran on the high low feed for a 3 point play at 13:02.  That brings Spring Lake Park back to a 13 all tie.  Then the Rebels start to pull away.  Brennan Witt with a layup, JT Gibson drives the zone for a 3 point play, Smith to the reverse and a floater and Johnson takes a turnover for 2.  That's an 11-2 Champlin Park run.  24-15 Rebels inside of the 11 minute mark.  Price fouled on a 3 and makes all 3 free throws at 8:20.  30-22 Champlin Park before they blow the game open.  Marty Hill and Gibson for 3, Jack Darnell 2 inside buckets off the bench, Smith and Gibson with 2 more bombs.  Its a 16-4 run in 3 and a half minutes and the lead is up to 20.  Witt with a pair of late layups and the lead stays at 20, 56-36 at the half.  More of the same in the 2nd half with lots of bench minutes.  Champlin Park wins 95-72.

Post Game
Spring Lake Park falls to 7-7 overall with the loss.  Collin Price with 20 to lead the Panthers.  Devonte Skrebes and TC Robinson with 13 each.  No success with the 1-3-1 zone as Champlin Park just sliced it up.  But not enough firepower either to keep up on the scoreboard.  They host Fridley on Friday as they attempt to stay tied in the loss column in the North Suburban race.

Champlin Park is now 15-1 overall and 10-0 in the Northwest Suburban.  They've won 14 straight since the close loss at Hopkins over Thanksgiving.  The Rebels are off until next Tuesday when they start the 2nd rotation of league play against Maple Grove before a dandy at Armstrong next Friday. Jeremy Johnson outstanding as he leads all scorers with 24 points.  Ian Smith and Brennan Witt with 16 each and both not only scored but had plenty of assists as well.  Great team ball movement and great offensive balance.
