Redmen boys basketball team romps against Houghton, Gwinn rallies from double-digit deficit to hold off Westwood

MARQUETTE — The Marquette boys basketball team took care of business Tuesday night as it blew past Houghton 72-26.

Kam Karp and Ty Lotterman each had 17 points for the Redmen.

Marquette took control early as it held a big 26-4 advantage after the first quarter and led 33-11 at the half. The second half was more of the same as the Redmen padded their lead to 56-19 going into the fourth quarter.


Gwinn 51, Westwood 48

At Gwinn, the Modeltowners rallied from a double-digit halftime deficit to get the win.

James Harnick had 16 points for Gwinn, while Zach Carlson led Westwood with 15.

After a close first quarter, the Patriots outscored the Modeltowners 21-8 in the second to hold a 26-16 lead at the half. However, Gwinn fought back to pull within six at the end of the third quarter and then outpaced Westwood 16-7 in the fourth to earn the comeback win.


Wakefield-Marenisco 78, Republic-Michigamme 39

At Wakefield, the Hawks fell behind quickly and couldn’t catch up in a tough loss to the Cardinals. Gabe DuPont and Derek Koski both had 10 points for R-M.

W-M led 21-5 after the first quarter and 42-14 at the half before putting the game away in the third by outscoring R-M 26-16.


Stephenson 65, Superior Central 29

At Stephenson, Garrett Koski scored 11 points for the Cougars, but the Eagles broke the game open in the middle two quarters.

Tied 9-9 after one quarter, Stephenson outscored SC 38-12 in the second and third quarter to assume a 47-21 lead entering the final period.

“It looked like it would be a good game,” Cougars coach Adam Ely said. “Then Stephenson went into a 1-3-1 zone (defense) and never looked back.”

Parker Maki added nine points for the Cougars, who didn’t make a 3-pointer after sending bunches of them home in their previous games.
