Patriots hand Wolverines 53-25 cage setback
Three Pequot Lakes cagers scored in double figures Jan. 18 as the Patriots toppled the Wolverines 53-25 in a Mid-State Conference tilt.
Jordan Redmond led the Pats with 17 points while Brett Peterson scored 15 and Travis Jacobson netted 10. The Patriots canned 21 of their 67 floor shots for a cool 31 percent.
Dylan Dumpprope was the only WDC cager in double figures with 18. Dumpprope dropped in all four of WDC's three-pointers. The Wolverines were four of 19 from outside the 3-point arc. The Wolverines made just seven of their 47 field goal attempts for an icy 15 percent average.
Dumpprope led the Wolverines with six rebounds while Blake Connell recorded five steals.
The Patriots dominated the boards 50-23 and pulled down 23 offensive rebounds to WDC's nine.
The loss dropped the Wolverines to 1-4 in the Mid-State and 4-8 overall. The Pats improved to 4-2 in the conference and 6-8 on the season.
The Wolverines travel to New York Mills on Monday for a non-conference game and host Long Prairie-Grey Eagle on Tuesday.
