KEWASKUM – The Plymouth Panthers’ defense stymied Kewaskum’s attack here Tuesday night to key a 56-39 win in the East Central Conference boys basketball opener for both teams.

PHS held the Indians to only 24-percent shooting (11 of 46) from the field.

“Although we continue to struggle to find a rhythm on offense, our defense played well – forcing Kewaskum into 21 turnovers and 18-percent shooting from inside the three-point line,” said Panther head coach Tim Schultz.

PHS improved to 2-2 on the season while Kewaskum dropped to 0-3.

The Panthers broke the game open by outscoring the Indians 28- 18 in the second half. Senior guard Cody Kuhn tallied eight of his 13 points in the final half to lead the PHS offense.

Alex Shutter led PHS scorers with 14. Kuhn had a double-double as he pulled down a team-high 10 rebounds, followed by Derek Schweiger with eight.

Matt Richards paced the Panthers in assists with five. Jake Steinhardt led in steals with two.

“Cody Kuhn played a solid game with 13 points and 10 rebounds. Cade Knaus, Brandon Keller and Jake Steinhardt played well, once again providing a spark for us on both ends of the floor,” said Schultz.

“Alex Shutter and Matt Richards did a good job of controlling our offensive tempo by pushing the ball up the floor. Cole Booth played well in his first extended minutes of varsity basketball.”

Brady Hanson led the Indians in scoring with 23.

In the JV 1 game, PHS cruised to a 52-34 win to hike its season mark to 4-0. Nick Falls led the Panthers in scoring with 12.
