North Eastern Conference
Luxemburg-Casco 74, Clintonville 49
The Clintonville Truckers discovered first-hand how good first place Luxemburg-Casco can be on their home court. The Spartans shot 59 percent from the field the entire night, including 59 percent from downtown, converting 13-of-22 from deep. Luxemburg-Casco built much of their 12-point halftime lead by creating turnovers from their full-court press, which in turn led to easy buckets. Clintonville turned the ball over 17 times in the contest. Despite how one-sided the game felt at times, the Truckers were still within striking distance in the second half, however outside of Tyler Petermann’s team-high 19 points, no other Trucker would finish with more than six. Nathan Krueger, a usual starter, came off the bench Friday night and ultimately was never able to get into a rhythm, finishing with just three points and fouling out with just over eight minutes to play.
“I’m hoping maybe this is an eye-opener,” said Clintonville head coach Shawn Howe on his team’s performance. “Hopefully this will serve as a little bit of a reminder in terms of what we need to do, or where we need to be in order to be ready. We have to regroup and be ready for Tuesday.”
Leading the high-powered Spartan offense was Bryce Te Kulve. He finished about his season average with 26 points, shooting 11-of-18 from the floor, and 4-of-7 from deep. Mitchell Jandrin added 16 points, thanks to five 3-point buckets. Clintonville has now dropped two in a row after opening the season with seven straight wins. They now turn their attention to welcome in Fox Valley Lutheran Tuesday.
