Culver rallies past Knox

December 13, 2010

CULVER — Culver Community’s boys basketball team just needed a little room to operate Saturday.
With the floor spread in the second half, the Cavs created driving lines, open shots, and offensive rebounding opportunities resulting in a game-changing 17-2 spurt and 57-46 win over Northern State Conference rival Knox at John R. Nelson Gymnasium.

Bremen falls short despite strong defensive effort

December 13, 2010

BREMEN — The wins might not be there yet for the Bremen boys basketball team, but improvement is.
A year ago, South Central beat Bremen by 29 points. It was a different game Saturday night, as Bremen had its chances in a 47-40 loss to the Satellites.
“The effort is always going to be there, and we executed the defensive game plan to perfection,” Bremen coach Kyle Hanyzewski said. “The only problem was our offense didn’t show up tonight. We just have to get those two going together, and when we do on the same night, we can beat some teams.”
