Trey Scheef added two more free throws with 38 seconds left, and Triston Keeney added a free throw with 20 seconds left to account for the 68-61 win.
“Give Platteview a ton of credit for shooting the ball really well. To be able to win a game when the other team hit 16 treys, does not happen very often. Rebounding continues to be a major problem for us. They hit three of their treys following offensive rebounds. We have to get tougher on the glass. Gerardo Madrid had a great first half for us. Triston Keeney got two huge steals for us late. Trey Scheef hit a huge three in the fourth quarter when things were not looking good. Trevor Kasischke had a huge night for us. He hit big shots, and got us a couple of great effort, offensive rebounds in the fourth quarter. He came up big.” Said Coach Kevin Scheef.
Platteview was 16-39 from behind the arc, and outrebounded the Warriors 35-23. The Warriors forced 18 Trojan turnovers while committing just 6 themselves.
Trevor Kasischke led the Warriors with 21 points on 2-2 shooting from behind the arc, and 5-6 at the line, to go with a team high 8 boards. Trey Scheef added 15 points, 6 boards, and 4 steals. Gerardo Madrid added 10 points on 4-5 shooting from the field. Thomas Waido added 10 points, 5 steals, and 4 assists.
The Warriors improve to 10-1, while Platteview falls to 6-6. The Warriors will travel to Valley on Saturday afternoon, to take on D.C. West.
