Rebels Dominate Dutchmen
The Edgerton Flying Dutchmen came to town to take on the boys in Red Rock Conference action. The Dutchmen have struggled this year as they came into the game with an 0-15 record. The Rebels wanted to start out fast, not giving Edgerton any hope of an upset and that’s just what they did.
Four different Rebels would contribute to a quick 11-2 lead for the hometown team. The Rebels, using a variety of players in the first half, would continue to pull away as they went into the half with a 40-21 advantage. They would connect on half of their two and three point attempts in that half (12/24 for 2 and 5/10 for 3) while holding the Dutchmen to just 18 first half field goal attempts (4/9 for 2 and 3/9 for 3).
The second half would be much of the same as the Rebels would out score the Dutchman 35-25 in route to a 75-46 win. The Rebel bench would see significant court time throughout the game, making the best of their opportunity. Fan favorite Adrian Galvez would connect on his first field goal of the year, draining a three-pointer in the right corner, sending the crowd to its feet.
For the second straight game, Nate Everson would lead the team offensively, scoring 19 points with 15 of those coming behind the three-point line. Tyler Groves and Justin Benda would also score in double figures tallying 11 points apiece.
With the win, the Rebels move to 12-6 overall and 9-4 in conference action. They will have five more games, four at home, before they head to playoff action.
