Senior Blake Wettleson shoots a lay up in the game here  last Thursday night. He had 19 points to lead all scorers. The Pirates play in first round tournament action here Thursday night against South Winn.


The Pirates played their last regular season game at home last Thursday against New Hampton. New Hampton, a nonconference foe, got off to a fast start and never looked back. After taking a 41-15 halftime lead, the visitors would end up beating the Pirates 73-57. Coach Sass said, “We started slow and didn’t move the very well on defense and turnovers were a huge problem. We didn’t pressure their passers enough either.”

After the game Sass said, “Our offense was good in the second half. The first half we probably had more turnovers the shot attempts, but we took better care of the ball in the second half and were able to do some good things attacking the basket on offense. We outscored them 42-32 in the second half.”
