BOYS BASKETBALL: Tigers slow it down in win over New Prague

Matt Kane
Sports Editor
DELANO — The style of play in its 40-27 win over New Prague Monday night contrasted every game Delano had played previously this season.

“The pace of the game was a little different than what we normal play,” said Delano coach Terry Techam. “New Prague played some zone and then we drew them out of the zone, which took some time off the clock.”

The change of pace proved affective against the Trojans, a fiery team whose players were seen taunting Delano’s and whose fans quickly grew impatient with Delano’s slow-down plan.

The Tigers’ stalled in the second half to the point where it limited the Trojan positions and held them to just eight points in 18 minutes.

Delano led 22-19 at halftime after trailing 7-0 and 13-5 early. The Tigers won the second half 18-8.

Calvin Wishart led Delano with 27 points.

Derek Techam finished with seven points; Keegan O’Neill with five; and Trey Longstreet with one.

Nathan Brusseau led New Prague with 13 points.

The win Monday night gave Delano a seasons weep of the New Prague. The first meeting between the Tigers and Trojans ended with a 64-53 Delano win Jan. 19 in New Prague.
