Tigers rally to defeat W-H-A, improve to 9-0
Dylen Spain-Brist and Jack Landquist hit key 3-pointers in the second half that helped the Nevis boys basketball team rally for a 58-54 win over Walker-Hackensack-Akeley in a Northland Conference game Tuesday night at Walker.
Michael Landquist recorded a double-double with 21 points and 11 rebounds to go along with four assists while Tom Wormley chipped in 13 points and eight rebounds. Luke DeWulf scored 8 points and had two assists and two steals while Zach Henry also had two assists and two steals.
Nevis trailed 29-27 at the half before rallying to improve to 4-0 in the conference and 9-0 overall. The Tigers remained in the No. 3 spot in this week's state Class A poll.
W-H-A fell to 2-2 in the conference and 5-4 overall.
"We got our toughest test of the season on the road at Walker. We came out a little flat and although I thought we did some nice things offensively, we were only 7 for 16 from the line, which really kept them in the game," said Nevis head coach Scott Kramer. "Our inability to hit perimeter shots caught up with us in the second half. We were eventually able to get the lead with the strength of our defense and escape with the win."
