’Cats bury Patriots, Dogies

Published: Thursday, February 6th, 2014

Adam Baker was trouble and then some for the Dogies on both ends of the court last week, as he scored 19 points, grabbed 10 rebounds and altered many Dogie shots in Custer’s win.

 

The Custer High School boys basketball team jumped out to a large early lead and cruised from wire to wire en route to a 68-51 win over the Douglas Patriots in Box Elder last Thursday night.
Custer led by as many as 24 points in the game, receiving 22 points from Chase Glazier, along with 16 from Adam Baker and 12 points from Kenneth Myers. Head coach Larry Luitjens said the team’s bounce back from big losses to St. Thomas More and Pine Ridge coincides with the return of Kenneth Myers from a concussion and more players getting into the scoring act.
“More guys are stepping up and hitting shots,” he said.â��“We are playing fairly well.”
The Wildcats limited Douglas to 30 percent shooting from the floor, with some of those Patriot baskets coming on long three-pointers in spite of good Wildcat defense.
“They popped a couple of 22, 23-footers,”â��Luitjens said. 
On Jan. 28, the visiting Newcastle, Wyo., Dogies hung around in the first quarter, but Custer used a 23-10 advantage in the second quarter to pull away for a comfortable 61-39 win.
The Wildcats made a concerted effort to get the ball inside to Baker and did so with success, as Baker scored 19 points while pulling down 10 rebounds, six of which were offensive. Baker was also a force on the defensive end, altering many Dogie shots in the paint area.
“We’re starting to get the ball inside. We have made a concerted effort to get Adam the ball,” Luitjens said.
