Camels Fall To Hot Shooting Indians
Posted On December 10, 2015 | By Gary Lemons
3, 3, 3, 3, 3, 3, 3, 3, 3, 3, 3, 3, 3, 3, ………. The Camels will be seeing the number 3 in their sleep tonight. The Holy Cross Indians drained 14 three pointers en route to a 69-42 victory over the Camels Wednesdy night in Latonia. The Indians also managed to hold Camels center Matt Wilson to 11 points in a tough night overall for the Camels.
The Camels couldn’t get a shot to fall in the opening period and quickly found themselves down 10-1. Cole Hegyi finally tallied a bucket for the Camels to make it 10-3 after one period, but it was an uphill battle for the Camels the entire night.
The Camels got untracked in the 2nd period and hit a few threes of their own to cut into the Holy Cross lead, but the Indians continued to fire from behind the arc at will against every defense the Camels threw at them. A quick run by the Camels at the end of the period cut the Holy Cross lead to 33-24 at the break.
The 2nd half was more of the same as the Camels struggled to score and the Indians seemed to have success with everything they threw at the basket. Holy Cross outscored the Camels 19-12 in the third period and 17-6 in the final period to extend the lead and the Camels could never recover.
Matt Wilson led the Camels with 11 points while Garren Bertsch had a nice game for the Camels and added 10 points. The Camels will take on the Crusaders from St. Henry this Friday night in the home opener.
