Sunnyside Christian broke open a 27-21 halftime lead with a 15-7 run in the third quarter and rode that cushion out to a 52-39 win Saturday in non-league boy’s hoops play in Moro.
Still within shouting distance at the start of the second half, Sherman coach Bill Blevins said three early turnovers led to six consecutive points that put his squad in a 33-21 hole.
“We played tough against Sunnyside for the first half, slowing down the pace of the game after a tough Friday night loss,” Blevins said. “We had a large size disadvantage with their line of 6-foot-7 inches and 6-4.”
Sunnyside sank 21 field goals and made good on 10 of 14 free throws.
For the Huskies, Max Martin had 17 points and Austin Kaseberg checked in with nine points.
Ben Holliday led on the glass with six rebounds, as the team drained 15 field goals, seven from 3-point land and 2 of 5 on free throw attempts.
“We did some things really well tonight, but were too inconsistent,” Blevins concluded.
The Huskies (5-5 overall, 0-1 league) hits the road to Condon (5-5, 1-1) for a 7:30 p.m. showdown on Friday.
