Sometimes a small thing can make a huge difference.
A double-digit scoring spree in a three minute span late in the second quarter by fourth seed Diller-Odell proved the difference in Monday’s 61-54 win by the Griffins over fifth seed Tri County in the D1-1 Boys Subdistrict Basketball game played at Freeman High School.
Both teams played a competitive first quarter with Tri County maintaining a 13-12 lead after eight minutes of action.
Tri County Trojans head coach Cory Jensen knew what he was going to see facing Diller-Odell, as two teams had faced each other earlier in the regular season.

Continuing to play its best basketball at the most crucial time of the season sparked the Fairbury Jeffs to a 58-53 semifinal win Tuesday night versus top seed Johnson County Central in the C1-1 Subdistrict held at Beatrice High School.
The key stat for Fairbury was hitting 8-12 free throws down the stretch.
“Early on JCC hit a couple of shots and flew around the floor a little faster than us. JCC was a bit more aggressive than us when the ball was in the air, so they were beating us to the ball here and there,” said Fairbury Jeffs head coach Adam Brill.
Bauer topped the Jeffs in scoring with 18 points, Wasserman, 13 points, DeBoer, 11 points, Cody Huss, eight points, and Nathaniel Stapaules and Tanner Novotny chalked up four points each.
