Isaiah Coles scored 18 points and Max Martin tacked on 17 to lead No. 9-ranked Sherman to a 63-26 win over the Mitchell-Spray Loggers Friday night in a Big Sky boys’ basketball clash in Mitchell.
After the long bus ride, Sherman coach Bill Blevins had his troops playing at an optimum level from the opening tip.
The Huskies jumped ahead 17-0 in the first quarter and never looked back.
“I was very happy with our defensive execution to start the game,” Blevins said. “We have to continue to get better at that end of the court.”
Up by 17 points to start the second period, Sherman (7-2 overall, 2-1 league) was scoring at will with a 21-9 output leading to a 38-9 halftime advantage.
The Huskies then reeled off an 18-7 third-quarter spurt to swell the lead as large as 56-16.
Following up Coles and Martin, Kyle Fields scored 14 points, Austin Kaseberg had eight and Jacob Justesen finished with five points.
Overall, the Huskies hit on 27 field goals, two from 3-point territory and shot 7 for 12 from the free throw line.
Mitchell-Spray made nine baskets, four from long range and added a 4 for 12 split from the stripe.
