Boys basketball: Reed-Custer guts out tough win at Riverton Shootout

But when it mattered, Reed-Custer OG0-091 re-established its identity scoring 16 points in the overtime period to emerge with a 70-66 win over the highly-touted Cardinals.

Reed-Custer vaunted offense was a bit out of sync in the  MB7-700 game and actually experienced an extremely rare four and half minute scoring drought in the second quarter. Fortunately for the Comets, Pleasant Plains wasn't really able to take advantage as Reed-Custer took a 32-30 lead into halftime.

"The first quarter was about right where 070-413 we wanted it to be," Reed-Custer coach Mark Porter said. "But then we just hit a lull when we just couldn't find the basket. But the thing that's different about this team is that when are our 3-point shot isn't going, we find other ways to get a win."

A return to its roots, an 8-point scoring flurry to start the fourth  1Z0-052 quarter, thanks in large part to the efforts of Travis Schoonover, appeared to put Reed-Custer in control, but Pleasant Plains answered with the final nine points of regulation including a ridiculous full-court dribble drive lay-in by Daulton Nibbe that forced overtime.

Once there, Reed-Custer immediately seized control thanks in large part to second-chance scoring opportunities from Brent Headrick and A.J. Simonelli.

Schoonover led Reed-Custer with 20 points,  1Z0-053 while Headrick (19) and Simonelli (11) joined him in double figure scoring.

Missed opportunities

Both teams had ample opportunities to win the game in regulation. But 12 missed free throws combined by both teams led to the complexion of the game changing multiple 640-461 times in the waning minutes.

Reed-Custer successfully managed to run off some clock in two late fourth-quarter possessions but didn't put the game away from the free throw line. Pleasant Plains was also put into situations where they could have stolen the win in regulation but also failed to convert.

"We should have won it in regulation," Porter said. "But the important thing is we had kids step up and we got the job done in overtime."

Running the gauntlet

The win capped a rigorous week for the Comets.

First, Reed-Custer captured a pivotal conference win on Tuesday 640-722 against a 19-win Peotone squad, then on Friday the Comets had to travel to Sandwich to try to best team that gave them trouble in the finals of the Interstate Eight Conference Tournament.

After that, a lengthy ride to Riverton to post the win over the Cardinals, left Porter smiling however his team managed to figure out how to get the win.

"The great part for us is that we got to play a great program like Pleasant Plains who every year is either ranked or receiving votes," Porter said. "Beating a team that's ranked, 642-832 whether is 10th or 6th or 1st. I just think its a feather in your cap. It's been a good week for us."

Also at the Shootout

Reed-Custer wasn't the only team to collect an impressive win at the Shootout.

Early in the day, Dwight edged out Waterloo 74-409 Gibault, 51-49. Gibault has spent most of the season ranked in the Class 1A poll and currently is in the others receiving votes category.

The Trojans (16-10) held Gibault to just five points in the fourth quarter in the victory.

Jace Kennedy and Justin Fox A00-212 each had 13 points to lead Dwight, Peter Hansen added 12.
