Tigers keep having success on the road

A balanced scoring attack led the Nevis boys basketball team to a 71-59 Northland Conference victory at Blackduck.

Led by Eddie Kramer’s five 3-pointers and 22 points, the Nevis boys basketball team continued to have success on the road following a 71-59 Northland Conference win at Blackduck on Saturday, Jan. 4.

Derek Lindow’s 17 points, three assists and two steals; Ty Warrington’s 13 points, four assists, four steals and three rebounds; and Luke DeWulf’s double-double of 11 points and 10 rebounds sparked the Tigers, who entered halftime with a 43-31 advantage. Kramer dished out three assists, Cain Mitchell hauled down five rebounds and Joe Houchin had two steals for Nevis.

The win lifted the Tigers to 3-0 in the conference and 8-1 overall while Blackduck fell to 3-1 in conference games and 5-3 overall.

“We were able to get an important conference road win against a very scrappy Blackduck team. We jumped out to an early lead and were able to hold on. For us, the game was won on the free throw line. We shot 27 for 32 from the line, which really put the pressure on them to have to score,” said Nevis head coach Scott Kramer. “It has been a tough stretch for our team with eight straight road games. We have two more before finally getting to come home to play.”
