The Crusaders led 15-12 after one quarter of play.  GICC extended the lead to 18-12 early in the second quarter.  The Warriors then went on a 10-0 run to take a 22-18 lead.  Thomas Waido had 5 of the 10 points in the run, Winston Cook had 3, and Karson Hesser added two free throws to put the Warriors up by 4.  A GICC trey at the buzzer tied the game up at 26 heading to the halftime break.

GICC jumped out to leads of 34-29, and 37-32 midway through the third quarter.  Two free throws and a short jumper from Trey Scheef, followed by a Thomas Waido free throw, tied the score at 37. A Blake Lacey drive and bucket to close the third quarter, put the Warriors up 43-40 after three.

A Winston Cook bucket put Wahoo up 45-40 to start the fourth.  The Crusaders then scored the next 5 points to tie the game at 45.  Winston Cook, then took over, scoring on the next three possessions, capped by a trey to put Wahoo up 52-45. A Trey Scheef lay up, made it 54-45, giving the Warriors their largest lead of the game at 9.  Following a GICC basket, Blake Lacey added two free throws to keep the lead at 9, at 56-47, with 3:30 left.  From there, GICC came charging back.  A trey and a driving bucket cut the lead to 56-52.  A Blake Lacey free throw, made the lead 5 at 57-52.  A Crusader trey cut the lead to 57-55.  A Thomas Waido free throw put Wahoo up 58-55.  Another Crusader bucket, made it 58-57.  The Warriors turned it over with 30 seconds left, giving GICC a chance for the win.  The Crusaders got up two three point shots in the last 7 seconds, that would have won the game, but both shots, were off the mark, giving the Warriors the exciting win.

“We did a lot of good things.  I thought we competed hard.  We knew it would be a grind it out, sort of game.  We put ourselves in great position with four minutes to play, and a 9 point lead, but we had some defensive breakdowns, and some bad turnovers, that allowed GICC a chance to win the game at the end.  We have been on the short end of a couple of those this year, so we will take the win.” Said Coach Kevin Scheef.

Winston Cook had a monster night, finishing with 30 points on just 14 shots from the field.  Cook was 11-14 from the field, and 6-10 from the line, to go with 12 boards.  Blake Lacey and Whomas Waido each added 9 points.  Karson Hesser led Wahoo with 6 boards, while Waido added 5. 

Wahoo outrebounded GICC 29-23.

Wahoo improves to 17-3, and will travel to Columbus Scotus on Tuesday night.  GICC drops to 12-7.
