Tigers run past Fond du Lac in finale

Andrew Dudley scored a team-high 19 points to lead a balanced scoring attack and Jack Landquist posted a double-double with 14 points and 20 rebounds as the Nevis boys basketball team closed out the regular season with a 90-50 win over Fond du Lac Friday night at the Tiger Arena.

Michael Landquist scored 15 points and had six rebounds, four assists and three steals while Griffin Chase chipped in 12 points, seven rebounds, four assists and four steals for the Tigers, who led 61-23 at the half. Zach Henry dished out three assists and hit three 3-pointers to join Tom Wormley with 9 points. Nevis made 10 of 32 3-pointers in the game to improve to 24-1 on the season.

"We were able to get a good tune-up offensively against a young Fond du Lac team," said Nevis head coach Scott Kramer. "We jumped out early and never looked back. We moved the ball well and everyone got some playing time."
