Boys Basketball wins.
Nuggets 100, Ada-Borup 62.
The Hawley Nuggets scored a season-high 100 points behind two Steichen free throws to improve to 21-1.
The Hawley Nugget men traveled to Ada for a non-conference matchup with the 20-3 Class A Cougars rescheduled to Monday night due to weather the week before.
The Cougars grabbed the tip as it slipped through the Nuggets’ fingers, but the Nuggets were first to score off a bucket by Harms. The game would stay within four points until the Nuggets started to pull away at 10:38 off a Pekas’ dunk that increased the lead to nine. The Cougars would again creep within four, but with just under 10 minutes to play in the half, the Nuggets started to give themselves some distance. They would lead by as much as 22 before heading to the locker room with a 21 point advantage to close the half 56-35.
Nuggets started the half with possession of the ball but could not score and the Cougars put in the front-end at the charity stripe to pull within 20 and the second half was underway. The Nuggets would maintain a comfortable lead for the remainder of the half and come away with their 21st win of the season, 100-62.
