BURRTON – The Inman boys basketball team finished out the week in fine fashion while using a big first and third quarters to score a 19-point, 57-38 victory over Goessel to finish third at the Burrton Boys Basketball Invitational.

The Teutons jumped out to a 10-point, 18-8 first quarter lead over Goessel before gaining another point in their advantage to go to the halftime break up by 11 at 29-18.

Inman put another 18 on the board in the third quarter and went into the final eight minutes of play with a commanding 15-point, 47-32 advantage before cruising in for the final 19-point win.

“We came out and really played well tonight,” noted Teuton Head Coach Brett Froese. “I was super proud of our effort all week.”

Jace Doerksen led the Teutons on offense by putting 14 points by his name in the scorebook while Kyler Konrade ended up with 11 much thanks to three three-pointers. Kolby Blank also finished in double digits as he chipped in with 10.

Both Doerksen and Derick Johnson were named to the All-Tournament team.

Coach Froese concluded his post-game reflections by saying, “I thought defensively we really set the tone early as we are getting much better at communicating with each other on the defensive end. Our full court pressure didn’t necessarily turn them over a bunch, but it really just got them our of rhythm most of the night. Offensively we moved the ball well and attacked the rim against both the man and zone. This young group continues to get better and better. We love their attitudes and how hard they play.”


The win brings the Teutons season record to 8-4. They will now prep for a makeup game on Tuesday, January 28 on the road at Moundridge.
