Three players reached double figures in Burr Oak’s 56-38 home win Tuesday over Marshall Academy.
Chantz Owens registered 11 points, and Brent Everitt and Logan Mount each finished with 10 for the Bobcats, which navigated the first quarter to a 17-7 advantage they wouldn’t relinquish.
Kenny Walston added eight points, James Saylor had five, Kenny Trouten chipped in two, and Alex Munoz and Justin Mullins each tallied a point.
Burr Oak shot 36 percent inside the 3-point line and made 4 of 14 attempts from beyond the arc, with Saylor connecting on a pair of triples.
Walston also collected a team-high nine rebounds, followed by Everitt (eight) and Mount (five). Christian Eckert dished out five assists and Everitt finished with two blocks.
“We started really slow tonight on offense trying to force too many passes down low in traffic,” Burr Oak coach Dave Brackett said. “We really got going with four minutes left in the third quarter. Our defense was strong tonight and we fed off that all night. We need to start finishing strong down in the post the rest of the season.”
