Three-point barrage sparks Crusaders past EL-G


SHEBOYGAN – The Sheboygan Lutheran Crusaders buried 10 three-pointers and held Elkhart Lake-Glenbeulah to only 20-percent field-goal shooting as they cruised to a 57-26 boys basketball win here Friday night.

Lutheran improved to 8-3 in the Central Lakeshore Conference (12-4 overall). The Resorters fell to 0-12 in the CLC (1-16 overall.

The Crusaders opened the game with an 11-0 run, keyed by 3-for-3 shooting from three-point range, and rolled to a 23-9 lead after one quarter. Lutheran built a 42-14 halftime cushion with a 19-5 scoring edge in the second period.

Senior guard Jacob Jurss led the Crusaders’ three-point barrage with three treys en route to a team-high 13 points. Lutheran was an impressive 50 percent (10 of 20) from beyond the arc.

Senior guard Trevor Taubenheim paced Elkhart in scoring with 15.

“I thought the kids kept their poise and played a nice second half. Once we got a feel for the game plan I thought the kids executed well but poor shooting and problems boxing out on the defensive end really hurt us,” said Resorter head coach Ray Mlada.

“Lutheran has a very good team but I thought our kids battled hard and did some good things.”

Lutheran’s Jared Jurss dished out a team-high six assists.
