Local teams fare well in season-opening Tip Off Tournament

HAMILTON – The Trojan Boys basketball team came away with a perfect weekend, while the Lady Trojans and Prospector Boys balanced their books at 1-1.


Trojan Boys

Drummond 66, Superior 20

Drummond 77, Alberton 28

The Trojans took early leads in both games and never looked back.

“Great start to the season,” said DHS Head Coach Levi Parsons of Friday’s victory. “We got out to a great start in the first half, pushed the ball well with only 3 turnovers. We did get a little tired and gave up some baskets that shouldn't have happened but we can fix that.”

On Saturday’s win over Alberton he added, “Boys played real well again today. Really moving the ball well and finding the open player. Got a few things to clean up on defense, but really happy about the first week.”

Brody Rasor has taken the reigns as the team’s point guard, dishing out six assists on the weekend. Trey Phillips led the attack on the glass collecting 14 rebounds over the two starts, with Ben Bradshaw (11), Scott Parke (10) and Chance Dunkerson (8) also contributing in the paint. Michael James picked opponent’s pockets eight times on defense.

The Trojans are off until December 9th when they open their District 13 schedule at Lincoln.

Prospector Boys

Two Eagle 52, Granite 48

The Prospectors allowed Two Eagle to get just far enough out of reach in the Friday opener that they couldn’t reel them in at the end.

“The boys played well, Hunter (Wingo) had a heck of a game,” said GHS Head Coach Mindy Avilla. “This is his first year ever playing basketball and he's doing really well.

“We still have a long way to go and hopefully having Cayhel (White) back next week, it'll be a step in the right direction. It helps having two of our captains (Andrew (Tallon) and Cavan (Babbitt)) on the court out there along with Eric (Pitcher) help lead those younger players.”

Avilla also gave a shout out to first year player Tavo Lattin who scored a buzzer beater as they game ended.

“Lots of new guys came out this year and a lot of them got better,” observed Tallon. “It really came down to miscommunication on D and missed shots.”

Tallon led all players in the game with 32 points, with Babbitt adding 11 and Pitcher four.



Granite – 9/16/13/10 – 48

Two Eagle – 11/20/11/10 – 52
