High School Boys' Basketball - Upper
Dauphin 82, Halifax 58
“We finally put four quarters of basketball together tonight,” Weaver said. “Total team effort – that’ what it takes to win a game like this. We used 10-11 guys, and they all played well. We shot the ball well, and when we did miss, the guys were hustling for rebounds and loose balls.”
Once the Trojans got the lead to double digits at the outset of the second quarter, the Cats never got back into single digits.
UDA pounded the glass throughout the game with a 35-16 rebounding edge.
“You have to give Upper Dauphin a lot of credit. They were hungry for this one,” Halifax Head Coach Dan Bowman said. “They really got after it on the boards. They shot the lights out, but when they did miss they got the rebound and gave themselves second, third and fourth chances.”
As hot as the Trojans were on the offensive end, they played some strong man-to-man defense and did it well for most of the night.
“Travis Deitrich, Drake Lenker, they had the (task) of guarding Koby (Bowman). They hustled their butts off all night. They all did,’’ Weaver said. ‘‘When someone got tired, he got a blow and another guy came in and did a great job.”
Despite the extra attention, Bowman had a solid night and led his team with 19 points. Connor Schadel added 13 points.
Miller may have led the Trojans on the scoreboard, but he had some help along the way, as Deitrich had a career-high 15 points and Alex Uhler added 10 points.
