Tip Off Classic recap: Tartan vs. Rosemount

By Alex Conover, Northstar Hoops Report, 12/13/14, 9:00PM CST


Tartan's youth turns this one into a blowout

Entering the evening portion of the Tip Off Classic, Rosemount and Tartan square off on the East Court. Tartan’s got a nice blend of experienced seniors (Jake Lyle, Deonte Fourte-Nelson) and talented youngsters (Emanuel Humphrey, Jordan Horn, Joevon Walker). Rosemount is senior-heavy, with Logan Halvorson, Kyle Kaupa and several others leading the way. Buckets trade back and forth until Tartan finds a five-point advantage with three minutes left. Rosemount finds their buckets, but Horn and Kingston Myles push a few fast breaks and lock the halftime score at 36-30.

Tartan expands their lead to 13 within about five minutes of the break. After a Horn 3, Rosemount calls a timeout and reorganizes. Both coaching staffs get very worked up over the officiating, and words are exchanged several times. Eventually a Rosemount player is given a technical, and Tartan extends their lead to 15 with another Horn 3. Rosemount goes through a tough stretch where nothing seems to drop, and meanwhile a Jake Lyle 3 connects along with more activity around the hoop. Kingston Myles slams home a transition dunk with less than two minutes left, and this one’s officially out of hand. The final is 69-47, Tartan.


Score by half: Tartan 36-33--69, Rosemount 30-17--47

Tartan: Fourte 6, Jackson 7, Lyle 9, Horn 23, Nistler 2, Humphrey 4, Myles 10, Waucer 5, Langer 3.

Rosemount: Hartigan 8, Hansch 2, Halvorson 14, Kessler 14, Muir 3, Loehr 2, Kaupa 4.
