The Big East Conference contest was the season debut for both teams. The BEC is in its inaugural season.

Random Lake held a whopping 25-6 advantage in offensive rebounds and an impressive 52-25 overall edge. In the first half, the bigger Ram squad ripped down 16 offensive boards which led to several follow-up baskets. Rams built a 40-16 halftime lead.

“They have a nice team. They have a lot of kids back and they pass the ball well and share the ball well,” said Resorter head coach Ray Mlada.

It took us awhile to get going.”

EL-G has a young team, with half of the 10-man roster being sophomores. The Resorters’ tallest player is just 6-foot-1.

“I’m disappointed. I expected us to play better tonight,” said Mlada whose team shot only 19 percent from the field.

The Resorters struggled against the Rams’ trapping defense which caused many of the home team’s 24 turnovers.

“The kids played hard and I’m proud of them. I’m confident they’ll improve,” said Mlada.

Mlada said it hurt the team not having junior guard Max Kossman available. Kossman, a returning starter from last season, underwent a sports hernia surgery last week and probably won’t be able to play for another week.
