Late week blowouts

The end of the week brought me new teams but a set of blowouts.  Hot dogs and pizza on the schedule with Coke products.  Quiet crowds on hand for a couple of nights.  Only Kevin Hart working on Thursday night.  We sneak in the the top 5 matchup between the Sioux Falls Lincoln and Hopkins girls inbetween these.  But Hopkins steamrolled in that game too.

Thursday: St. Croix Lutheran 81 Richfield 46
Story here was St. Croix Lutheran's shooting.  6 different kids knock down triples.  The Crusaders make 18-27 3s in the game.  That was evenly balanced with 9 in each half. Devin Wade-Henderson in 1st half foul trouble.  He still leads Richfield with 11 points.  Adam Arroyo with 18 points to lead St. Croix Lutheran.  Freshman Xavier Garcia with 5 3s and 17 points in the 2nd half off the bench as the game got out of hand.  St. Croix Lutheran played without starting PG Aaron Jenniges and F Dorrell Bratton.  Frosh Zach Longueville very solid in place of Jenniges.

Friday: #2AAAA Hopkins 93 #1AA Sioux Falls Lincoln 59
Too much Hopkins from the get go.  Blaise Beauchamp 3 quick triples as Hopkins opens an 18-4 lead.  Lincoln star Diang Gatluak held to 0-7 FG shooting in the 1st half.  The Royals open up a 28 point half time lead.  Lincoln missed a bunch of inside opportunities.  Gatluak does get some offense in the 2nd half as Lincoln tries to keep it respectable.  But too much Hopkins in this one.  Blaise Beauchamp was hot from deep with 5 3s and scored 25 points.  Zeke Nnaji was a factor inside with 18 and rebounded well.  Anthony Davis and Dane Zimmer each add 12.  Hopkins once again very sloppy as they try to get the ball out and run.  Reckless heaves down court for turnovers still happening.  Diang Gatluck scores all 11 of his points in the 2nd half.  Along with 11 from Alex Glanzer, they lead the Patriots in scoring.  Jared Jaros with a pair of 3s and 10 points.
