..... #i% ) Kimball Sports & Students 00hursd 13 ,: ............ : ................................................... ,,,, ay, uecember 5, 2013 Cubs impressive in win over Paynesville Pat Garry Writer Hot on the heels of a decisive victory over the Foley Falcons, the Kimball Area Cubs hoopsters added another notch to their vic- tory belt Tuesday, Nov. 26, top- ping the Paynesville Bulldogs, 79-65. A complete team effort, the Cubs had four players score in double figures. Junior center, Jared Merchant, posted a dou- ble-double, with 26 points and 16 rebounds, leading the Cubs to the non-conference win. Mathias Hennen hit a three-point shot at the first half buzzer to cut Paynes- vi!le's lead to three (40-37). Keep- ing on a roll, the Cubs started the second half on a 7-0 run and never lost the lead, and for a five minute span, Kimball held the Bulldogs scoreless. Coach Jay Klein sums it up, "we struggled in the first half in tran- sition defense, contesting shots and stopping penetration. In the second half, we switched to zone and played much better defen- sively. We had nice balance in our scoring, getting four players in double figures. We also did a great job of sharing the basketball with 22 assists." Senior guard Mathias Hennen added 20 points, junior guard Joey VonWahlde tallied 14 points and 9 assists, and senior guard Cameron Hunt posted 11 points, while dishing out 9 assists, for the victorious 2-0 Cubs. Junior forward Will Spaulding had 6 points and 4 boards, and senior guard Ben Serbus had a bucket. Next, the Cubs travel to Royal- ton to meet the Royals in a non- league game, on Tuesday, Dec. 3. Kimball's junior Jared Merchant does a pump fake to fool the Bulldog defenders and then puts it up for 2 of his 26 points. Staff photo by Marguerite Laabs.
