Republic-Michgamme Hawks boys basketball team zips past Hannahville

HANNAHVILLE — Republic-Michigamme built leads of 21-3 and 44-8 after each of the first two quarters to rout Hannahville 77-14 in a boys basketball game played Thursday night.

Dylan Heinonen scored 19 points to lead R-M (3-4), while A.J. Ball added 14 and Alex Dupont 11. John Meshigaud scored six for Hannahville (0-8), which travels to Grand Marais Wednesday.

“We were just overwhelmed,” Hannahville coach Mark Gauthier said. “They were able to fast break and were crisp on offense.

“Our kids were all right about it. We knew this was a tough match-up for us. We tried to play a zone (defense), but they were able to get open looks. They beat us in every phase of the game.”
