HG upped its BEC record to 5-1 (7-1 overall). The Tigers share second in the league with Kohler, with Hilbert in first at 6-0. Reedsville fell to 1-5 in the BEC (3-6 overall).

“We got off to a hot start and we were able to do a lot of different things offensively – pound it down low with Derek Stauss, shoot outside with Bryce Pedrin, and attack the lanes with Caleb Holzman and Eric Reinemann,” said Tiger head coach Wade Georgeff whose team led 36- 15 at halftime.

“It was important for us to come out and make Reedsville earn everything, not allowing them to get anything easy. I thought we did a great job of that to start the game and to start the second half.”

Pedrin, a senior guard scored a game-high 23 points, followed by Holzman’s 17.

The Tigers opened up a 47-15 lead with an 11-0 run in the first 5:00 of the second half. Pedrin scored five points on a layup off his steal and a three-ball to lead the surge. HG had three steals during the spurt.

Malik Muhammad led the Tigers in rebounds with seven off the bench. HG’s tenacious defense had an impressive 17 steals, led by Pedrin, Stauss and Holzman with three each.

Holzman and Jack Baldwin paced HG in assists with four apiece. Holzman also had a team-high two blocked shots.

“I was really impressed with Caleb Holzman’s ability to work down low and score from the outside,” said Georgeff.
