Pirates win at TroyPIRATES BOYS BASKETBALL SCHEDULE FOR 2020-21
It wasn’t quite the blowout it was 9 days earlier but Prairie still had little trouble dispatching Troy as they won 56-34 at Troy, Friday, Feb. 5.
Prairie beat Troy by 50 points at Cottonwood on January 26 and it started like it was going to be a similar outing as the Pirates jumped out to a 16-0 lead in the first 4 minutes of action.
Lane Schumacher started things with a 3-pointer on a cross-court feed from Brody Hasselstrom. Schumacher then stole the ball and returned the favor with Hasselstrom scoring a lay-up. A steal by Hasselstrom led to another 3-pointer by Schumacher.
Zach Rambo followed with a jumper from the elbow and then scored a lay-up after another steal by Hasselstrom. Cole Schlader got into the scoring column with a pull-up jumper from the elbow and Schumacher finished off the opening 16-0 run with a steal and drive for a lay-up.
Troy finally got on the board at the 3:40 mark with a 3-pointer. Prairie answered with a lay-up each by Schumacher and Wyatt Ross.
