KAUFMAN, SCHLOSSER, UNRUH LEAD WILDCATS

By William

HUTCHINSON – It was too much of Lucas Hammeke that caused the Moundridge boys basketball team to stumble on Friday and suffer a 19-point, 58-39 loss on the road at Hutchinson Trinity.

Lucas Hammeke is a sure-fire all-state type player, and he drilled the Wildcats for 21 points by hitting nine-of-fifteen shots which included a pair of three-pointers.

Trinity jumped out to a 16-4 lead by the end of the first quarter and while the Wildcats trimmed the lead a few points, they still trailed 29-19 going into the halftime break.

Moundridge put 20 more points up in the second half, but Trinity doubled their score at the same time with very consistent offensive basketball.

“Too much Hammeke tonight,” pointed out Wildcat Head Coach Vance Unrau during his game reflections. “One of the premier point guards in the area and he dictated a lot of what happened on the floor tonight. Trinity has other weapons however, and they are deep. Credit our guys for hanging tough.”

Landon Kaufman led the Wildcats in scoring with 11 points while both Jon Schlosser and Corbin Unruh each reached double digits as well with 10. Schlosser topped the team in rebounds with seven while Kaufman dished out five assists and made three steals.

The loss drops the Wildcats season mark to 4-5 as they ready to play next week in the Canton/Galva Tournament.
