Conf. Tour. First Round
The Wahoo Warriors defeated the Syracuse Rockets 69-22 in the first round of the Capitol Conference Tournament at Wahoo on Tuesday night.
The Warriors led 19-7 after one quarter, 40-11 at halftime, and 59-16 after three quarters.
“Considering we were missing three of our top 8 guys with illness, I was pretty happy with how we responded. We were not real smooth early, but it got better in the second and third quarter.” Said Coach Kevin Scheef.
Wahoo forced 23 Rocket turnovers, while committing just 8. The Warriors were 25-49 (51.0%), while Syracuse was just 8-30 (26.7%) from the field.
Trey Scheef led Wahoo with 22 points on 9-11 shooting from the field. Thomas Waido added 11 points on 4-5 shooting, 6 boards, 5 steals, and 4 assists. Trevor Kasischke added 9 points, while Gerardo Madrid and Micah Sears added 8 points.
Wahoo improves to 13-1 and will host Platteview on Friday night in the Semi-Finals of the Conference Tournament. Syracuse falls to 0-15.
