The Newburg boys basketball team (15-5) hosted Belle on Tuesday, Jan. 31. The Wolves had a great game on both sides of the ball and ran away with an 80-55.
Newburg set the tone for the game in the first quarter with 26 points out of the gate. They held Belle to just 11 points in the first quarter to take a 15 point lead into the second. Belle was able to chip into that lead in the second, but not by much, and Newburg took a 39-26 lead into the half.
Newburg went on to extend their lead in each of the next two quarters, capping off the game with a 25 point fourth quarter to run away with an 80-55 win.
The Wolves spread the all around well, with all five of their starters finishing in double figures. This was the fourth 80-plus point performance for Newburg this season, but their first of 2017. Trey Gaedke led the way with 19 points and Logan Doerr was right behind him with 18. Landen Callahan and Tyler Newton each scored 14 points, while Ryan Terry added 11.
"We played one of our more complete games on both sides of the ball tonight," said head coach Logan Ray. "We moved the ball well on offense and had all five starters in double figure scoring. We're starting to get everyone back healthy after a tough stretch of games on our schedule."
The Wolves will next host Cuba on Friday, Feb. 3.
Gaedke - 19, Doerr - 18, Callahan - 14, Newton - 14, Terry - 11, McWilliams - 4
