Kenyon-Wanamingo Hits 9 Threes in Win Over Triton
The Kenyon-Wanamingo Knights had four different players score three point baskets in a 60-47 win over the Triton Cobras in the Castle tonight.
Senior 6'3 Laden Nerison led the Knights scoring with 19 points including two three point baskets. Junior 5'11 Anjuan Higgenbottom drilled four three point buckets. Sophmore 6'2 Colton Stebeg added two and senio 5'10 Gavin Sommer one.
The Cobras had three triples in the game which at times was sloppy.
K-W led 34-25 at the half thanks to Nerison's 14 first half points. The Knights were playing without the services of senior Luke Alme, out with a shoulder injury. Classmate Trevor Steberg came out of the game with what appeared to be a shoulder injury also.
Younger brother Colton Steberg stepped up to score 6 points and had to have about 5 or 6 rebounds in the game.
Higgenbottom finished with 16 points and made a great pass to 6'8 senior Paul Kortsch.
Steberg and Higgenbottom earned Held Bus Service of Kenyon Knights of the game honors for their efforts.
Nerison had the Cashwise Foods and Pharmacy of Owatonna Delivery of the Game not only for delivering his 19 point performance but he also delivered a spectacular bounce pass from about 8 feet across midcourt to Sommer that led to a easy layup.
Triton's leading scorers were seniors, 6'0 Owen Petersohn with 16 points and 6'1 Noah Thomas with 10 points.
The Cobras did not shoot a single free throw the second half and finished the game 2 for 5 while the Knights finished 5 of 7 from the charity stripe.
One of the statistics that determined the outcome of the game was points off turnovers.
Kenyon-Wanamingo scored 18 points off 19 Triton turnovers while the Cobras had 10 points off 17 Knights miscues.
Triton fell to 2-2 overall, 1-1 in Gopher Conference play while K-W is 4-1 in the league, 4-2 overall.
