Sturgis got a combined 40 points from Brecken Stewart, Thomas Kurowski and Zachary Chapman Tuesday night and coasted to a 68-34 boys basketball victory over Constantine.
Sturgis established control during the early stages of the contest. The Trojans led, 17-3 after eight minutes of play and never looked back.
Stewart scored a game-high 19 points for the Trojans, while Kurowski and Chapman chipped in with 11 and 10 points, respectively. Sturgis also got eight points, apiece, from Logan Wiard and Drew Murphy, and Samuel Leck added seven points.
Joe Wynes and Mark Diaz each finished with two points for Sturgis.
Nolan Malcom and Trey Salisbury each scored six points for Constantine, while Seth Wright and Hamilton chipped in with five points, apiece. Hunter Bacheller, Dawson Kiess, and Guy Topolski each finished with four points for the Falcons.
Sturgis held the Falcons to just 11-of-38 from the field and 3-of-18 from behind the 3-point line.
“I thought our length caused them some problems,” Sturgis coach Keith Kurowski said. “We did a good job switching defenses as well to keep them out of rhythm. Held their leading scorer, Seth Wright, to five points.
“Good balance offensively and I liked how we moved the ball and found guys for high-percentage shots. Logan and Zac were really good off the bench as they combined for 18 points. Just liked how guys shared the ball and made the extra pass.”
