Ruud Shatters School Scoring Record

Coming into a key SEC match-up between two of the three teams in the conference with winning records, Lanesboro (11-2, 13-6) and Mabel-Canton (10-3, 11-8), Kole Ruud needed 23 points to break Braden Hanson’s all-time Burro scoring record (1,430 points) set just two seasons ago. In true Ruud fashion, it took the scorer-extraordinaire less than a half to do so. The 6’0” senior did most of his work at the free throw. He hit a whopping 14 of 15 first half freebies. It was free throw ten that tied the mark, eleven that broke it. By halftime, Ruud already was close to his season average (27) with 26!

As for the game, it was close early, but M-C lost their leading scorer/playmaker, Justin Ward, to a recurring shoulder injury. Lanesboro led 27-23 at the time. By halftime, the Burros built a 44-35 lead. Fellow Lanesboro scoring stand-out, Luke Rogers, established himself in the post in the second half. The Cougars didn’t have an answer defensively for the terrific duo, nor could they keep up offensively. Lanesboro got the win 80-57.

Ruud was ridiculous in scoring 41 (16-18 FT’s, 10-16 FG’s, 5-7 three’s), a new personal best (he had 40 versus Lewiston-Altura last season). It took Ruud 73 games to get to 1,430, it took Hanson 102; a testament to Ruud’s (mostly) two-year scoring proficiency. Rogers finished with 18 (pts), 10 (rebs), and 4 (assists). For M-C, Hunter Johnson (17 pts, 6 rebs) and Noah Manning (17 pts, 6 rebs, 5 assists) did their best to keep up, to make up for Ward’s absence. It came down to shooting, and Lanesboro held all the edges, on three’s (6 of 14/43%; 2 of 15/13%), FG’s (25 of 49/51%; 22 of 58/38%), and FT’s (24 of 31/77%; 11 of 21/52%).

Rogers Tops 1,000

Career Points

Coming into the week of Monday the 3rd, Luke Rogers needed 34 points to join Ruud as having notched 1,000 for his career this season. After 18 versus M-C, Rogers needed 16 versus Glenville-Emmons to reach the ballyhooed milestone. The 6’2” senior G/F got it. He scored 13 in the first half, and then, with his second bucket of the second half (a rebound put-back), he was at 1,001. He finished with 19 and 8 rebounds. Of course, Ruud victimized the Wolverines to the tone of 27 (6 of 9 trifectas). The Burros took care of business with a 76-47 victory. Lanesboro then made it a perfect three for three on the week with a 62-45 win over Hope .....
