RANDOM LAKE – Starting with a 22-2 barrage, Random Lake buried Elkhart Lake-Glenbeulah, 74-27, in Tuesday’s Big East Conference boys basketball opener.

The Rams (1-0 overall) dropped in seven three-pointers during the first half for a 38-15 lead. They included three apiece by Dan Ruchalski and Austin Martin.

The Resorters opened the second half with a three-pointer each by Dante Miller and Caleb Broaddus but the Rams answered with 27 points in a row for a 65- 21 lead with 11:57 to go.

“We were physically overwhelmed. Random Lake is bigger, faster and stronger. Some of their kids, specifically Martin, Ruchalski and [Bryan] Weiss, have really improved strengthwise and skillwise,” said Resorter head coach Ray Mlada whose team opened its season.

Junior guard Caleb Broaddus paced EL-G in scoring with 12 points on four treys. Martin, a senior guard, led a balanced Rams’ attack with 23 points.

“The guys played well,” said new Ram head coach Chuck Nelson. “Ball movement really opened things up both inside and outside. The starters set the tempo of the game and the subs sustained it.”

“Their [Resorters’] players played hard but our tempo really controlled the game.”

The Rams made 43 percent of their field-goal attempts while Elkhart hit only 27 percent.

Andrew Sitko and Miller led EL-G in rebounds with three each.

“Our kids will get better. It’s a long season – a marathon, not a sprint, and these kids have shown the past two years they are much better in February then November,” said Mlada.

The Elkhart junior varsity won, 40-39.
