Bucs Show Zac Attack While Beating Cardinals
6’2 freshman Zac Olson of the Waterville Elysian Morristown Buccaneers tallied 26 points in a 66-44 win over the Faribault Bethlehem Academy Cardinals tonight in Waterville. The Bucs held a 38-24 lead at the half while Olson and senior Landon Harmon had 12 points and junior point guard Cole Pope collected 10 first half points. Harmon finished with 17. Twice in the second half BA cut the lead to 7 but could get no closer. The Cardinals were paced by senior Kyle Novak who had 16 of his 18 points in the first half. Novak and junior Pete Clark were our Faribault State Farm Insurance agents Faribault players of the game. The key stat of the game was the 17 points the Bucs scored off turnovers. Bethlehem Academy finished their regular season 13-13 and the Bucs finish their regular schedule Friday when they host Mankato Loyola. WEM Head Coach Jeff Wagner told POWER 96 the game probably wouldn’t manner in the Section Two Class 2A South Subsection seedings which come out on Wednesday. Wagner believes the Bucs are firmly entrenched as the three seed. The top seed will undoubtedly be the Waseca Bluejays, Gopher Conference Co-Champ NRHEG will be the second seed. The four, five and six are a toss-up. Seven will be Medford and eight Kenyon-Wanamingo. Bethlehem Academy is the third seed in the Section One Class A West Subsection and begins playoff action Thursday at home against Grand Meadow at 7pm.
