The Glenbrook Apaches continued their impressive roll through their schedule as they improved their record to 19-4 and 8-1 in district after beating Central School, 72-18, Tuesday night.
"We were able to come out tonight with high intensity on defense and created turnovers for quick baskets," Glenbrook head coach Chris Korvelous said. "Because we came out an took an early lead, we were able to get a lot of our guys in for valuable minutes. Also, in the second half, we were able to work on a few new things both offensively and defensively that will help us out in the long run."
The Apaches dominated in every phase of the game, not just on the scoreboard. They owned the boards, pulling down 40 rebounds, dished out 22 assists, made 18 steals and created eight other turnovers as well. The Apaches shot 30 of 41 from the field (73%) and three of nine from the three-point line.
"We were pleased with everyone's effort tonight both on defense and offense," Korvelous said. "We got a lot of good looks for assists to others for baskets, we rebounded well, and our defensive sets worked well. We still need to work on free throws, as we have seen in a couple of close games in the past, if we make our free throws, especially down the stretch, we can come out on top."
Wesley Hicks led the way for Glenbrook with a double-double of 17 points and 12 rebounds. Trez "Mookie" Mac scored 16 points and Devin James added 13. Zach Specht scored nine points and pulled down 10 rebounds and Cade Spurlock scored nine. Jacob White had eight points and Austin Palmier totaled five rebounds and four assists.
"Everyone contributed something," Korvelous said. "and Zach scored his 400th point on the season tonight. Congratulations to him for that accomplishment."
The Apaches will travel to Pineville Friday night to play Cenla Christian Academy.
"This will be the most important game for us so far this season," Korvelous said. "They are currently #1 in our district, we are #2. In our previous match up we went into overtime and lost a close one by six points. I am encouraging every Glenbrook fan to try their best to make the long road trip."
