Comet Boys Win in Underwood

By Craig Olson - Underwood, MN

The Hillcrest boys basketball team built a 32-18 halftime lead on Friday night in Underwood and went on to hand the Rockets a 56-40 loss in a Little Eight Conference contest.


“An excellent all around first half by all of our guys led to our halftime lead,” said Hillcrest head coach Gregg Preston.  “I thought that our good team defense, aggressiveness to the basket and on the glass made for a very good team effort.”


Andrew Twedt had 17 points 7 rebounds and 5 steals while Daniel Nersten added 20 points, 5 rebounds and 3 assists off of the bench.  Josh Wolderich pulled down 10 rebounds.


Zane Lind led Underwood with ten points and ten rebounds.  Jason Umlauf added 8 points. 


Hillcrest won the battle of the boards, 47-26.


“We got off to a great start in this game as we took an early 5-0 lead,” commented Underwood head coach Curt Olson.  “We were aggressive, played solid defense and shot the ball pretty well in the first half.  We gave up a run to Hillcrest part way through the first half which allowed them to take a fourteen point halftime lead.  We battled hard, but couldn’t overcome that run.”


Hillcrest improved to 7-3 overall and 5-1 in the Little Eight Conference.  They will host Wheaton/Herman-Norcross on Saturday night.


Underwood is 4-11 overall and 1-6 in the LEC.  They will host Campbell-Tintah-Fairmount on Monday night.
