Stars blow past Blackhawks, win 65-50 at Sheridan

The Western Boone boys basketball team jumped out in front of Sheridan Thursday night and never looked back.

The Stars led 10-1 four minutes into the game and continued to build the lead throughout the first three quarters before settling for a 65-50 victory.

The game was played at Sheridan Elementary School because a water main broke in the high school, ruining the basketball floor.

"We really wanted to put some pressure on the ball defensively and make sure that we were rebounding with all five guys," Western Boone head coach Scott McClelland said. "Then we wanted to push the ball down the floor and get some easy baskets and we did that early. We did a good job of setting the tone early in the game and were able to eventually get up 27. We did some good things tonight and it was a good road win."

Western Boone got baskets from four different players while building the 10-1 lead.

The lead was 12 after a quarter and 19 at the half after Riggs Baxter hit a half-court shot at the buzzer.

Western Boone was able to rotate their seven main players and try different combinations throughout the game.

That was important, McClelland said.

"I thought we were able to get some different people in and try some things," he said. "We tried to stay fairly vanilla and not get too complicated and just run our offense. I probably stopped us from getting a few more scores in transition just because I wanted us to run some half-court offense. It was a good win and now have to bounce back tomorrow."
