Tigers escape with win against Mitchell

Posted: Monday, Feb 18th, 2013




MITCHELL — The Huron Tiger boys’ basketball defeated the Mitchell Kernels Saturday evening 53-51.

Justin Decker, Adam Zwanziger and Caleb Carr all finished in double figures for the Tigers.

Decker had a game-high 19 points while Zwanziger and Carr each had 12.

The Tigers had seven-point leads at the end of each of the first two quarters with a 26-19 halftime lead. With just eight minutes to play the Tigers still led by 6.

The Tigers shot just under 50 percent for the game hitting 23-of-49. Caleb Carr also grabbed a game-high 11 rebounds as the Tigers outrebounded the Kernels 40-23.

The Tigers are now 13-6 on the season and wrap up their regular season Tuesday hosting Watertown.

The Tigers will likely go into the District 3 tournament as the No. 2 seed behind Pierre.

Mitchell, while splitting with Aberdeen Central and virtually tied with respects of record, could vault ahead of the Golden Eagles with a victory over Yankton Tuesday.

Aberdeen Central hosts Pierre that evening.

Should those facts hold Huron could host Mitchell Tuesday, Feb. 26 in the district semifinal with Aberdeen Central facing Pierre.

The district final and third-place game will be Friday, March 1 at the site of the higher seed.
