Brandon-Evansville coach John Holsten is being inducted in to Minnesota's Basketball Hall of Fame this year. The Comets took time to congratulate coach Holsten prior to their 70-41 victory over the chargers. Holsten is recognized as a humanizing coach who treated players, fans and opponents with dignity during his 41 year coaching career.
The game saw a consistent pressure from the Comets. Sharp permitter passing translated into quick footwork from the Comet backcourt. Evan Malmstrom stripped the Chargers 3 times in the evening contest as the Comet guards proved too much for the chargers.
Sean McGuire contributed 10 points, Reggie Undseth giving a consistent 4 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists on the night. Chris Tungseth also showed-up to the gym with an all-around performance, bringing home 5 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists.
The Comets shot 52% from the floor, making 33% of their three-point attempts. Coach Holsten noted the steady approach the Comets have, "The Comets activity on defense had much to do with our low shooting percentage...Their movement on offense was difficult for us to guard effectively. We had no answer for Jake Isaac tonight at all. He was terrific.
Isaac continued his scoring campaign, leading with 31 points on 12-of-23 shooting from the field and 5-of-5 from the line.
Hillcrest is 11-2, 5-2 in the conference. They play at Ashby on Thursday night.
