Evenson, Tigers run late past the Red Devils
PRINCETON — Jesse Brandt was willing to try anything to get the Princeton Tigers out of their recent shooting slump. In Tuesday’s practice, he had them work out with an oversized basketball and when it came time to shoot, all they could do was say the word “shot” and dribble away to continue their offense.
He said he wasn’t sure if the practice scheme had anything to do with it, but he was happy with the results. They shot 48 percent from the field on the way to a 54-41 win over Bureau County rival Spring Valley Hall. It was their highest scoring outing in seven games for a team averaging 36.1 ppg in their last 11 games.
“We had a couple bad stretches there when we let them game back in the game. When we were patient offensively and executed what we wanted to do, (we) got the shot we wanted. It was nice to see some go in tonight,” Brandt said.
