Bronchos blowout Dibble

RUSH SPRINGS — On paper, Central High’s first round matchup in the Black Diamond Tournament against Dibble looked relatively even.

And so it was, at least for the first quarter.

After being down 9-7 going into the second, the Bronchos quickened the pace and never looked back en route to a convincing 66-37 victory.

“I expect very high things out of this team everytime they hit the court,” Central coach John Nease said. “The first quarter really opened our eyes and showed us we needed to change some things. Our guys adjusted and were able to speed up the pace. Being able to attack the basket more worked for us.”

CHHS took its first lead at 12-11 at the 7:00 mark of the second, and the blowout was on from there.

Heading into halftime the Bronchos were leading 31-20, thanks in part to solid offensive possessions with key penetrations occurring down low against the Demons defense.

“When you start moving the ball, you can’t play help defense on everyone,” Nease said. “That really starts to play to our advantage and it helps us get open looks all over the floor.”

A key component of those possessions was senior Dallin Ferrin, who finished with 18 points, the majority of which came in the paint.

“The inside game was getting the job done for us today,” Ferrin said. “I think they were keying on me around the three point line. That allowed me to find my teammates and get some open looks around the rack.”

Things got a lot faster after the break as the fast break points continued to flow for the Bronchos and the lead continued to grow.

Heading into the fourth, there was little doubt as to the outcome as the Bronchos were in cruise control leading 57-28.

On the night, CHHS (7-2) shot 6-for-11 from the free throw line which negated a 2-for-9 performance from three-point range.

Dibble finished 1-of-9 from outside the arc, while putting together a 10-for-16 performance from the free throw line.

Kevin Harris led the Bronchos scoring attack with 20 points, to go with four rebounds. Ferrin also added six rebounds and five assists on the night.

Zarek Hickman finished with nine points and five rebounds, while Connor Albiston put in six points with six rebounds. John Repp and Wade Farmer each added four points.

Dibble (7-3) was led by Preston Sturgell with 14 points followed by Dylan Cook with 11 points.

CHHS will meet the winner of Sterling/Bray-Doyle Friday night at 5:45 p.m.

Poll

Should the date for The World's Largest Garage Sale be changed from the third weekend in July to sometime in October to take advantage of cooler weather like we had this past weekend?

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
Yes. More shoppers would come during nice fall weather.
Either time is fine.
