Meridian Has Tough Time Making Shots

Meridians opening game against Dorchester in the D2-2 Sub-district Boys Basketball Tournament played Feb. 24 at Wilber-Clatonia High School could be best described as grappling with the flow of its offense.

We really had a tough time making shots. We had a rough time getting into the flow of our offense, Meridian Mustangs coach Nathan Wall said.

Dorchester did a nice job of staying down on Kyle Schwisow helping inside the line. They knew we would take 80 percent of our shots inside the lane. We just couldnt get anything easy in the game, Wall said.

As a result of their struggles with their offense, the Mustangs were handed a 34-28 loss by the Longhorns.

Meridian had a good start as they opened a 9-6 lead behind the scoring of Ty Brakhage with three points and Ricky Nunez and Schwisow scoring two points each.
