Big second half keys Panthers’ lopsided win

GREEN BAY – Plymouth outscored host Green Bay East 46-34 in the second half to key an 80-58 rout in nonconference boys basketball action here Tuesday night.

The Panthers’ point total is a season high as they had a very balanced attack. PHS had three players scoring in double figures and five with at least eight points.

PHS hiked its record to 4-4 while the Red Devils dropped to 1-5.

The Panthers outscored East 27- 12 at the free-throw line and shot 52 percent from the field, compared to East’s 39 percent.

“East is a very physical and athletic pressing and trapping team. In the first part of the first half we struggled to make good decisions against their pressure. As the game worn on we became more comfortable with the pressure and were able to exploit it for layups and force them into fouling us,” said Panther head coach Tim Schultz.

“As evidenced by our balanced scoring and the number of assists we had, we played unselfishly on the offensive end.”

Senior guard Alex Shutter led PHS in scoring with 14, followed by Cody Kuhn and Brandon Keller with 13 each.

The Panthers had an impressive 19 assists, led by Matt Richards with five and Kuhn, four.

“Brandon Keller, Mason Guell and Cole Booth all played extremely well off the bench. Matt Richards played an excellent all-around game,” said Schultz.

Derek Schweiger paced PHS in rebounds with seven, followed by Mason Guell and Keller with six each. Booth, Richards and Shutter dished out a team-high two assists apiece.

“This was a nice win for us heading into a short Christmas break from games and practices. Hopefully it [break] will allow us to rest up and allow a few of our guys to heal from nagging injuries which have plagued many of the players up to this point of the season,” said Schultz.

JUNIOR VARSITY GAMES

Joe Steinhardt hit 17 points to lead the PHS JV 1 team to a 74-37 romp. Noah Baratka added 12 points and led in boards with 11.
