Cougars' offense clicks in victory


ACKLEY- A season-high offensive output lifted the AGWSR boys’ basketball team to an impressive 77-53 victory over BCLUW here Friday in the North Iowa Cedar League West Conference finale.

The scoring spree was a team effort as the Cougars had four cagers in double figures led by Luke Starr’s game-high 20 points.  Alex Hames and Tanner Weichers added 16 points apiece with 14 for Jaden Penning.

“It was a good night for the Cougars,” commented AGWSR coach Russ Banzhaf. “We shot the ball well and shared the basketball very well. And we did a better job of getting to the free throw line.”

The last 3:30 of the first half was all AGWSR as the Cougars went on a 17-4 spurt that turned a two-point game (20-18) into a cushion of 37-22 at halftime.
