The homestanding Bunnies of Benson raced out to a quick 12-4 lead and never looked back en route to a convincing 78-62 victory.

Players of Note:

Marcus ShakeerMarcusShakeer6'3" | SGOmaha Benson | 2021StateNE  -  SG  Senior  6’3  165lbs  Omaha Benson Magnet High School

Shakeer (#1 pictured) paced the Bunnies with a game high 34 points. The currently 22nd ranked senior on the Prep Hoops Nebraska rankings almost outscored Northwest himself the first half, scoring 19 to the Huskies 21 at intermission. Marcus scored the ball on all three levels with 3 made 3pt shots, eurosteps into finishes in the paint, and demonstrated his athleticism with both one and two handed dunks. The senior has interest from both four year (NCAA D1 and D2) and juco programs currently; and certainly is a college level talent.
