“We shot the ball well tonight, which was good to see, but we were sloppy with our passes. That had been a strength of ours this year, in taking care of the ball, but we did not do that tonight. 18 Turnovers is way too many. It was good to see both Trevor Kasischke and Triston Keeney shoot it well from the perimeter.” Said Coach Kevin Scheef.
Trey Scheef led the Warriors with 18 points on 7-10 shooting from the field to go with 4 steals. Thomas Waido had 18 points on 7-10 shooting from the field, along with 6 boards, 5 assists, and 4 steals. Triston Keeney contributed 15 points on 3-3 shooting from behind the arc to go with 5 steals. Trevor Kasischke was also in double figures with 10 points on 2-3 shooting from behind the arc.
Wahoo shot 70.6% from the field on 24-34, and shot 77.3% from the line on 17-22. Wahoo turned the ball over 18 times, but forced 20 Lutheran turnovers.
Wahoo improves to 8-1 and will travel to Syracuse on Friday night. Lincoln Lutheran drops to 6-4.
