The Stanfield Tigers used a breakout first quarter and rode that big lead the rest of the way to a 79-49 road victory over Sherman Tuesday in non-league boy’s basketball play in Moro.
After eight minutes, the Tigers held strong to a 22-7 lead, and followed up that effort with an 18-16 output in the second quarter to lead 40-23 at the break.
In the second stanza, the Tigers did not let up, as they worked counts of 24-12 and 15-14 to get the 30-point win.
Adrian Angel scored a team-high 13 points to lead a Stanfield team that hit on 31 field goals, four from distance, and sank 5 of 6 free throws.
For the Huskies, Austin Kaseberg racked up 17 points. All told, Sherman knocked down 14 field goals and connected on 12 of 24 charity shots.
It is just a three-game sample size, and Sherman coach Bill Blevins is in the mindset of maintaining a positive perspective through the tutorial process.
“Changing coaching philosophies and styles is going to take some time,” Blevins said. “There will be some bumps and bruises along the way, but we will learn from them and continue to improve.”
Sherman (1-2 overall) next hits the road out to Trout Lake for a 7:30 p.m. game on Friday.
