By Robert Whitmire
The SPASH Panther boys basketball team celebrated senior night with a resounding 84-32 win over the Merrill Bluejays Friday night.
Leading 33-7 at the 5:40mark of the first half, the Panthers went into the locker room with a 47-9 lead at the break. Merrill was unable to put the brakes on the Panthers in the second half trailing 61-16 at the 14:20 mark.
Needing 16 points to hit the 1,000 point mark in his Wisconsin Valley Conference career, senior Trev Anderson did not disappoint the hometown crowd lighting up the board with 21 points. The UW-Green Bay recruit becomes just the fourth player in the WVC to surpass the 1,000 point mark.
Anderson led all scorers with 21 points. Joe Fasula (14), Sam Hauser (12), Joey Hauser (9), Jake Hofmeister (7), Jamison Kryshak (6), Mack Journell (4), Keon’te Williams (4), Drew Blair (3), Beau Rosenthal (2) and Ted Kearney (2) rounded out the Panther scoring.
SPASH hit 20 two-pointers, 12 three-pointers, and went a perfect 8/8 at the free throw line.
Playing their final regular season home game at the SPASH fieldhouse were seniors Ted Kearney, Jake Hofmeister, Jamison Kryshak, Sam Hauser, Joe Fasula, Trev Anderson, Mack Journell and Evan Mallek.
SPASH closes out its regular season schedule on the road travelling to Schofield Feb. 19 to face D.C. Everest, then Wausau East on Feb. 25. Both games are scheduled to tip off at 7:30 PM.
