Let the good times roll

By Jarann Johnson

The Bison aren’t playing any games when they take the court. The Bison are playing to win. Last week Hettinger-Scranton and Mott-Regent found out about the Bison’s home court advantage first hand. The Bison’s home record is 10-0.
The Bison knocked off Hettinger-Scranton 75-67 first on Tuesday. The Bison didn’t have an easy time with Hettinger-Scranton though. Early in the game it was close but the Bison had the lead 20-19. In the second period the Bison got their lead up to four points but it was still close 39-35.
Hettinger-Scranton was staying in the game with really strong 3-point shooting. Hettinger-Scranton was 7 of 10 on 3s in the first half, accounting for almost a third of their points. The Bison were struggling on 3-pointers going 1 of 7 in the first half.
The second half saw Hettinger-Scranton cool off on 3-pointers. Hettinger-Scranton was only 2 of 7 in the second half and the Bison were 2 of 5. When Hettinger-Scranton stopped beating the Bison with the 3-ball and had trouble rebounding the game shifted in favor of the Bison.
The Bison won 75-67 and leading scorers were Austin Cieslak (24) and Wyatt Car (14). The win was good for the Bison but they weren’t done facing hot shooters.
