Tigers run away from Red Lake

The Nevis boys basketball team took charge in the second half for an 80-47 victory.


Cain Mitchell hit a pair of 3-pointers to spark a 48-25 run in the second half that lifted the Nevis boys basketball team to an 80-47 Northland Conference win over Red Lake at the Tiger Arena on Friday, Feb. 26.

The Tigers, despite making only 3 of 15 3-pointers, led 32-22 at the half before taking control in the second half. Derek Lindow finished with 26 points, six rebounds and three assists while Ty Warrington added 16 points, five rebounds, four assists and four steals. Mitchell chipped in 15 points and four steals, Eddie Kramer grabbed eight rebounds, and Jack McNamee had six steals and four assists as the Tigers improved to 10-1 in conference play and 11-2 overall.

Red Lake, which lost to Nevis 71-52 on Jan. 19, fell to 6-4 in conference games and 7-5 overall.

“This game was a lot more competitive than the score would indicate. Red Lake really played hard in the first half and they were able to slow us down a bit as we didn’t shoot really well from behind the arc in the first half,” said Nevis head coach Scott Kramer. “Our defense and rebounding kept us in the lead, and we were eventually able to make a run midway in the second half to blow the game open. It was a good win for us as Red Lake is always a tough opponent.”
