Cadets squeak past Patriots, 53-43

(Continued)

CLAYTON —

DuBois expected the 1-2 punch of Roper and Gates and the Cadets still could not slow the duo.

“Unfortunately we didn’t do a very good job of containing them. Roper and Gates are great players,” DuBois said. “We told our guys to key on them but we didn’t do a very good job of doing that. We were doing zone, man, zone, man and they still attacked it. Those guys are good players and it didn’t matter what we were doing, they were still going to the basket.”

Cascade led 11-9 after the first quarter and was able to stretch the lead to 10 at halftime. The second quarter deficit proved to be the difference in the game as Cascade made nine free throws and Suter poured in two triples. Bethesda was outscored 15-7 in the quarter.

“That second quarter was huge,” DuBois said. “If we didn’t get that lead in the second quarter we don’t win this game.”

Both teams opened the second half with three turnovers each in the first 2:15 of the third.

Bajwa scored the first six points of the half, including two baskets off offensive rebounds to stretch the Cadets’ lead to a game-high 16 points.

Gates scored the Patriots’ first field goal of the half with 2:52 remaining in the third. Back-to-back Cascade turnovers off of Roper steals and layups cut the deficit quickly back to 10 points.

“He really thrives on chaos, so that’s probably my fault for not going to the diamond sooner to create a more a chaotic environment there,” Cook said.

Patrick McCurry’s 3-pointer right before the end of the third quarter cut the lead to 40-27 and was the first and only field goal from a Bethesda player not named Roper or Gates in the contest.

Cascade continued their poor ball control with four turnovers in the first two minutes of the fourth quarter.

The Patriots capitalized as Gates scored the first basket of a 9-0 run and Roper finished it off to cut the lead to 46-40 with under four minutes to go.

But that was as close as the Patriots would get.

“The question is how do we bring that energy for 32 minutes and not just the last 11,” Cook said.

Cadet senior Jake Canaday and Bajwa each responded with layups each to put the game out of reach.
