Bruins maul Cadets

LIZTON — The Tri-West boys’ basketball team took a small 6-point lead after one quarter, expanded it to 17 points at the half against Cascade, and cruised to victory. Tri-West led wire-to-wire Wednesday night as the Bruins won going away, 72-41.

Trevor Waite’s nine second quarter points — on 4 of 5 shooting from the field — outscored Cascade by a point. Waite, a 6-foot-2 junior guard, led all scorers with 18 points on 7 of 13 shooting, including going 2 for 2 from behind the arc. He also led Tri-West with five assists and two steals, two of which went for layups.

Tri-West coach Adam Bontreger said the length of his starting lineup — four starters measure 6-foot-2 or taller — gave Cascade fits and is a product of the program’s evolution.

“It gives us an advantage on the defensive and offensive end(s), if we use it properly,” he said. “On the defensive end, that was a key. This year, more so than ever, we’ve really been focused on our defensive end. To hold them to 41 points is a testament to our guys and the work that they’ve been doing in the offseason.

“Any time you have that length, you’re able to contest shots, you’re able to rebound better if you’re in good position. For the most part, we did that tonight. I was really pleased with our first night out.”

The host Bruins spent a lot of time in Cascade passing lanes, an aspect Cascade coach Chris DuBois said his team cannot prepare for in practice.

“You can’t coach length,” DuBois said. “You have that length, it’s gonna hurt you. In practice, we don’t get to go against guys like that. Of course it’s going to hurt us when we go in the game. It doesn’t matter who you play.”
