Micah Fuller became the eighth Brandon-Evansville boys’ basketball player to reach the 1000 career point mark as he scored 14 points on Tuesday night the Chargers 70-52 loss to Hancock in Evansville.  “Micah has put so much time into his craft and deserves this recognition,” noted B-E Head Coach Trent Hintermeister.

 

Riley Perleberg and Tanner Riedel each scored 15 points to lead the Chargers.  B-E only made 18-of-47 shots from the field and the Owls held a 37-20 advantage on the boards over the Chargers.

Hancock hit 22-of-29 2’s (76%) and 7-of-11 3’s (64%) in the game for an overall field goal percentage of 72.5%.  Leaders for the Owls were Hudson VerSteeg (23 points, 11 rebounds), Preston Kisgen (23 points), Chase Evink (10 points, 13 rebounds) and Brayden Kisgen (8 points, 8 assists).  Rylan Meierding distributed 5 assists for the Owls, who had 19 assisted baskets on their 29 made field goals.

“Hancock was unconscious from the 3-point line and used their size to their advantage extremely well,” stated Hintermeister.  “We needed to do a better job of communicating defensively and we didn’t do that for the whole game and it cost us.  Now, we need to grind out these next three games as they are all important sub-section games.”

Hancock (11-12, 9-9 LEC) will host Lac qui Parle Valley on Friday.

Brandon-Evansville (12-11, 9-6 LEC) has a road game at Belgrade-Brooten-Elrose on Thursday and will host Benson on Friday.
