SHERMAN WINS

WESTFIELD – The Westfield Wolverines (9-9, 6-6) were able to hang with the state’s No. 4 Class D team for a quarter of play, but the Sherman Wildcats (17-1, 12-0) used an 18-5 third quarter to pull ahead en route to a 67-46 victory.

“The first quarter was entertaining,” Westfield coach Bob North said. “(Andrew) Graham hit a three-quarter court shot to end the quarter. We didn’t defend the three well all game. We worked on closing out and did a terrible job. It was disappointing, but take nothing away from (Sherman). They can shoot it. They are a balanced team and every player can make a three.”

The Wildcats hit 12 3-pointers in the game including four from Ryan Meyers, who finished with 17 points in the win. Andrew Graham scored a game-high 19 points for Sherman while Ryan Robson added 13 points

Tanner Dahl scored 14 points to lead the Wolverine’s offense. Jacob Gray contributed in the loss with 10 points, seven rebounds and three assists.
