20-12 after 1st quarter (Trojans). 31-19 at half (Trojans). 44-23 end of 3rd (Trojans). Final: (Trojans)56-27(Coyotes)
Best Recruit: Connor Braun (Trojans)- 6’8” Jr. can do it all. Fluid athlete who can play off the bounce and can shoot it. His combination of height and athleticism should garner a lot of interest at the next level.
Defender: Sam Meyer (Coyotes)- 6’5” Jr. post player does a great job of staying on his feet and keeping his hands vertical to block shots. Very physically strong player who doesn’t give up position on the interior.
Best PG: Jalen Grijalva (Trojans)- strong ballhandler who does a good job of finding the open man
Best Beard & Socks: Jack Gray (Coyotes)-sporting the wolverine mutton chops. Looked just like X24 clone from the Logan movie (even wore fanged mouthpiece to complete the look!). Nice touch wearing mustard yellow NBA socks to match the black and yellow color scheme of the Lutheran jerseys.
Footwork: Evan Olsen (Trojans)- very impressed with the 6’6 Senior’s post play. Passed well to open shooters from the post and finished plays inside utilizing nice spin moves
Super Subs: Logan Phillips (Trojans)- long athletic guard at 6’3”. The Sophomore got to the paint off the dribble and knocked down corner 3’s. will need to heighten his release point as he gets stronger as he still shoots from chest level.
1A: Tyler Salt (Coyotes)-5’9” guard provided great energy off the bench. Had an impressive lefty floater shooting over Valley Christian’s 6’6” and 6’7” frontline.
Toughness: Caleb Cunningham (Coyotes)-primary ball handler for Lutheran. Never got rattled despite the defensive pressure and hostile crowd.
