Storm Split in Holiday Classic

Storm Split in Holiday Classic

The first night had SCC shooters heating up in a 100-73 win over Doane JV. The second night featured an ice-cold performance in an dreary 88-54 defeat to 3rd ranked and undefeated Highland.

Kalem Hardaway led SCC with 22 points, and Ben Moss added 17 as the Storm rolled Doane. They shot 57 percent from the floor,  and 46 percent from the three point line.

The Storm got quality minutes from the bench as well.

Brandel Rickenburg came off the bench to go 3/4 from downtown.  He finished with nine points. Liem Liem went 4/5 from the floor, ending the night with eight points.

Southeast's defense held Doane to just 3/22 shooting from beyond the arc.

The second night was a disaster for the Storm, playing against one of the top teams in the country.  The starting lineup accounted for just 24 out of the 54 points Southeast managed to get.

The game was a little more competitive in the first half as SCC tralied by just 10 points at 38-28. However, Southeast did not come out energized and were buried 50-28 in the second half.

In fact, Southeast had to go deep into the bench to get a player who hit double figures in scoring. Daz Williams led SCC with 10 points, including two as smooth as silk three pointers. Kenan Grey led the starters with 8 points on 4-7 shooting. Jalen Patton-Croker also shot well, managing eight points on 3-4 shooting. 

But overall, SCC had a lid over the bucket as they shot just 31 percent from the field.

Taiveyhon Mason led the Highland with 17 points, Tristen Hull had 15. As a team, the Scotties shot 46 percent from the field.

The gauntlet continues for the Storm as they travel to D1 North Platte on Tuesday, Dec. 11.
