The Tomahawk boys basketball team fell to 6-4 last week with a pair of tough losses to GNC foes.
The Hatchets dropped to 6-4 overall and 1-2 in the GNC.
Rhinelander pulled out a 49-28 triumph last Tuesday, after starting with a 20-12 half.
“I thought we played a very good defensive game, allowing only 48 points,” THS coach Tim Albert noted. “However, on offense when we did execute, we couldn’t get anything to fall from the perimeter. We attacked the basket well in the first half and got to the foul line, but didn’t convert well enough.
“In the second half, we didn’t attack enough and our execution wasn’t good enough against a very good team.”
Tomahawk was paced by Justin Jarvensivu (9), Jacob Zietlow (5), Brandon Vecchio, (3), Easton Phalin (3) and Isaac Weber (3).
Tom: 12 – 16 –28.
Rhi: 20 – 29 –49.
The Red Robins broke open Friday’s 23-18 game with a 42-15 second half.
“We just weren’t able to execute in the second half, for the second night out.,” Albert said. “Antigo got up by ten in the early going of the second half, and we forced things on the offensive end of the floor. We took some quick shots and had some turnovers that led to easy baskets by the Red Robins. We just allowed them to be too comfortable on the offensive end of the floor.
“We need to do a better job of executing our offensive attack, especially when a team is making a run on us, like Antigo did tonight.”
Leading the way for Hatchet scoring were Jarvensivu (11), Phalin (7), Vecchio (5).
Tom: 18 – 15 – 33.
Ant: 23 – 42 – 65.
