The Custer High School boys basketball team appears to be getting hot at just the right time, as it enters a four game stretch in which it will play three of the top ranked teams in the state.
The boys continued its hot shooting last Saturday night in the Armory, when the they blasted the visiting Lead-Deadwood Golddiggers 60-30 in a game that was 51-10 after the third period.
“We were shooting well and they weren’t,”âï¿½ï¿½Custer head coach Larry Luitjens said.âï¿½ï¿½“I’m not suprised with how we’re playing. I expected us to start playing well.”
The Wildcats again had both the inside and outside game working, as the team hit six three-pointers and held a 35-18 advantage on the glass.
Chase Glazier, who scored a game-high 17 points, hit three of his four three-point attempts, while Logan Burns hit both shots he took from distance.
While Glazier and Burns were connecting from distance, Adam Baker and Joel Thomsen were having their way inside. Thomsen pulled down 10 rebounds in only a half of play, while Baker scored 10 points, also in limited action because of the lopsided score.
Luitjens also commended sophomores Graysen Trandem and Patrick Witt for coming in and playing great defense, as well as senior David Hernandez, who had five assists, three rebounds and a pair of steals.
