Tip Off Classic recap: Benilde-St. Margaret's vs. Simley

By Alex Conover, Northstar Hoops Report, 12/13/14, 2:30PM CST


A big day for Jack Stensgard pushes Simley past the Red Knights

In the second East Court game, Simley and Benilde-St. Margaret spar back and forth throughout the first 10 minutes. Derek Drees and Sam Baker trade 3s, then a few scores at the rim give Simley a four-point lead and prompts a BSM timeout. Simley keeps building their lead as Jack Stensgard goes baseline and scores followed by a 3-point look. The advantage gets as high as nine at the break, as the Spartans take a 39-30 lead. Jack Stensgard with 19 at half for them.

As good as Jack was in the first, he kept it rolling in the second. His smooth shooting motion and high arc produced several more from outside the arc, giving the Spartans a lead as high as 21. Things got slightly better for the Red Knights, as they got back within 13 with some outside shooting, but they never really got close again. Benilde simply looked tired on defense, and who could blame them? Jack Stensgard ran them all over the court. Simley puts the subs in with 1:40 left, and the final is 79-57, Spartans over Red Knights.


Score by half: Simley 39-40--79, Benilde-St. Margaret's 30-27--57

Simley: J. Stensgard 33, Alvarado 2, Amspoker 7, Gray 5, Statford 2, S. Stensgard 17, Scheffley 4, Zellmer 5, Anderson 4.

B-SM: Cassen 6, Miller 4, Patnode 3, Baker 13, Drees 11, Cave 9, Lillenthal 10, Schmitz 1.
