Basketball hot starts


Mon, Dec 16th, 2013
Posted in All Sports

A number of county basketball coaches have to be pleased with the way their seasons have started. Five squads’ records are unblemished through a week and a half of action. The Rushford-Peterson boys and girls, the Chatfield girls, and the Mabel-Canton girls are all 3-0. The Houston girls are 2-0 (and have half as many wins as last year total). Additionally, M-C’s boys are 3-1 (and are almost half way to last year’s win total).

Who’s Better,

Trojan Boys or Girls?

The R-P girls highlight the undefeateds because of the streaks they ended to get to 3-0. Their first win of the week came over Caledonia, 64-58. Minnesota-scores.net has results back to the 2004-2005 season. R-P doesn’t have a win over the Warriors in that nine-season, 18-game span. The Trojans then made the long trip to Adams to down Southland 68-56. The last time R-P’s girls beat the Rebels was the 2009-2010 school year, or a six-game span. Helping spearhead those wins is the revelation that is sixth-woman Brianna Koop. After scoring 22 in R-P’s season opener versus Hope Lutheran, the 5’9” freshman forward followed that up with 24 points (11-13 FG’s), 7 rebounds, and 3 steals against Caledonia, and then 22 points (6-11 FG’s, 10-11 FT’s), 10 rebounds, and 6 steals versus Southland (both off the bench). Of course, Koop isn’t doing it alone. Senior guard Kendra Crawford had 16 points, 6 rebounds, 8 assists, and 4 steals versus Caledonia, and then 24 points (9-12 FT’s), 8 rebounds, 4 assists, and 6 steals versus Southland. Hope Morrison had 13 points and Brooke Johnson 9 rebounds and 6 steals against Caledonia. Keela Brand (a 5’3” forward mind you) had 8 points and 14 rebounds against the Rebels. Terry Pelzl’s ladies aren’t actually on par with their 2nd-ranked male counterparts, but they are progressing in that direction.

The R-P guys also got two wins on the week, matching their ranking in state. One would think starting the season 3-0 would be a natural occurrence for the Trojans, but they haven’t done so since 2010-2011. They started 1-2 each of the past two seasons (before, well, turning it around). R-P got its first win of the week over Caledonia, 73-66. The Trojans trailed 36-34 at the half, before finding the win column with a better second half effort. Senior forward Jorli Hauge had a big overall night (14 pts, 13 rebs, 6 assists, 6-8 FT’s). Junior guard Alex Vix was pretty good too (18 pts, 6 re .....
