Cadets fall in home battle

CLAYTON — Despite 12 points from each Schuyler Hart and Colton Jones, the Cascade boys' basketball team fell to visiting Speedway 59-50 Friday night.

“This was the story of the year,” said Cascade coach Chris Dubois. “Our effort has been great and I cannot complain about that at all. We have got to be able to execute better at times. We get into stretches were we just can’t score. Those are the times that we have to execute better. That’s what hurt us tonight. I think that we won the first and fourth quarter.”

Speedway (7-6) got off to a hot start, beginning the game on a 11-2 run. However, the Cadets (2-13) fought back and closed the quarter on an 11-0 run to claim a 13-11 advantage after the first.

“They always fight back, no matter what the score is,” Dubois said. “That’s a positive for the year. I am proud of those guys and how they do that.”

However, Cascade was outscored 30-16 in the second and third quarters and dug quite a hole going into the fourth – trailing 41-29.

Though the Cadets outscored the Sparkplugs in the fourth quarter, it was not enough.

“It was a tough environment and we haven’t played since last week,” said Speedway coach Charles Bennett. “Our game on Saturday got snowed out and we have practiced four days, so the kids were itching (to play). I was really pleased. The start was great and then we got a little bit lackadaisical and they came back, but I was pleased overall.”

Cascade's Zac Butler had 11 points and Hayden Suter chipped in eight. Jones also contributed seven rebounds to lead the squad.

The last four losses by Cascade have been by a combined 25 points.

Anthony Jones led the way for Speedway with 23 points, while Jordan Furlow scored 13.

The contributions of Jones and Furlow inside are something Bennett is counting on.

“(Jones) really went inside the arc tonight,” Bennett said. “He loves to shoot the 3 and we talked to him before the game. His percentage outside is hovering around 25 percent, but inside, it’s 57 percent. He can pass too and find guys inside."

Cascade will look to rebound from the loss when it battles Bethesda Christian on Feb.7.
