Carey boys, WRHS girls notch cage wins

Cutthroat boys also win on road

The Carey School boys’ varsity basketball team overcame a major hurdle on the path to February’s Northside Conference tournament with a 66-62 overtime league win over host Castleford on Tuesday night.

Carey (8-5, 3-0 league) overcame Castleford’s 50% field goal shooting by forcing 25 Wolves’ turnovers and making 18 steals en route to the fourth consecutive Panther triumph. The Carey boys shot 15-for-20 (75%) at the free throw line, or 13% better than their average.

Panther sophomore Nate Adamson (17.5 ppg) led the way with 25 points on 10-for-20 field goal shooting. It was his seventh 20-plus effort in the last nine games. He added 4 assists and 7 steals. For the game, the Wolves out-rebounded Carey 35-27, but the Panthers did better on the offensive boards and committed only 12 turnovers.

Other contributors: Jordan Dilworth 17 points, 6 rebounds, 3 assists, 4 steals; Sheldon Hansen 11 points, 7 boards, 3 steals; Jayce Koudelka 5 points; Matt Whitworth 4 points and 2 rebounds; Patrick Baird 2 points, 8 rebounds, 3 blocks, 3 steals; and Gunner Thompson 2 points and 2 rebounds.
