Wheaton/Herman-Norcross shot just 32.9% from the field on Monday night, but the Warriors were still able to post a 63-48 victory over Clinton-Graceville-Beardsley in a Pheasant Conference boys’ basketball contest in Wheaton. The Wolverines weren’t much better, hitting only 34.5% of their shots.
“We did not shoot the ball very well tonight, but we attacked the glass on both ends and got a lot of offensive rebounds which carried us to victory,” reported Wheaton/Herman-Norcross Head Coach Jordon Roos. “We also had some nice contributions from our bench. CGB played very hard and deserve a lot of credit in this one.”
The Warriors held a 55-35 edge on the boards and were led by Clint Determan’s 20 rebounds and 14 points. Ten of his boards came on the offensive end. Dylan Bainbridge (10 points, 6 rebounds, 6 assists, 2 steals) and Zach Braaten (8 points, 6 rebounds, 2 assists) also had solid stat lines for WHN.
Wheaton/Herman-Norcross (6-4) is off until Thursday when the Warriors travel to Benson.
