PREP BOYS BASKETBALL: Panthers falter on road at Warsaw

WARSAW — A poor start and an even worse third quarter were the downfalls for the NorthWood Panthers Friday night.

NorthWood trailed 12-5 after one period and were outscored 26-14 in the third period as the Warsaw Tigers handed the Panthers a 67-51 NLC high school boys basketball loss at the Tiger Den.

“It was a combination of things Warsaw was doing and what we were doing to ourselves,” NorthWood coach Aaron Wolfe said.”We were aggressive early on and could not capitalize on some opportunities. Because of that as the game went on our players started to press.”

Despite the slow start, the Panthers were up 20-19 at halftime.

“I felt as slow as we started we were lucky to still be in the game at halftime,” Wolfe added.

The Tigers put up 48 points in the second half pulling away from NorthWood. The lead got as high as 17 points (66-49 with 1:58 left to play).

“We talked at halftime and the kids knew I was not happy,” Warsaw coach Doug Ogle said.

At that point Ogle turned things over to assistant coach David Wayne.

“David gave a very inspirational talk,” Ogle said. “He talked to the guys about claiming the second half. Then the guys went out and did just that.”

Another assistant, freshman coach Todd Braddock, made a suggestion that Ogle credited for making a big difference in the second half.

“He suggested bringing (6-0 senior) Jared Bloom to the high post in our zone offense,” Ogle said.

The move worked right away as a basket by Bloom at 7:06 of the third ignited an 18-4 run by the Tigers for a 37-24 lead with 3:36 left in the period.

“We need to be in better defensive position,” Wolfe said. “We took ourselves out of good position a number of times in a single possession.”

The rebounding battle also began to turn in favor of the Tigers in the third quarter. Warsaw held a 34-17 advantage on the boards in the contest.

“Our rebounding, especially in the third period, is something we need to clean up if we are going to be a solid team,” Wolfe said. “I think we took a step backward in our play tonight. Giving up 26 points in a quarter is a sign you defensive rebounding and your defense are struggling.

“Warsaw made a lot of right decisions in open floor in the second half.”

The Tigers had a 12-5 lead in offensive rebounds.

“Rebounding was huge in this game,” Ogle said.

Bloom tossed in a game-high 22 points for the Tigers. He was 10-of-11 from the free-throw line as the Warsaw team was 19-of-24.

Six-one junior Jordan Stookey added 17 points for the winners with all of them coming in the second half. He also dished out seven assists.

“I’m really happy with the way he played,” Ogle said. “I went to bed early last night in an effort to get a good night’s sleep. I woke up at 2 a.m. I sent Jordan a text message at 4 telling him what a good week of practice he had.”

“Stookey played very well in the second half,” Wolfe said.

Six-two senior Tommy Klem tossed in 17 points to lead the Panthers. Six-four juniors Jonathan Wilkinson and Zach Zurcher both chipped in with 13.
