Tuttle splits district round with Bethany

(Continued)

TUTTLE —

Tyler Lester led the Tigers with 19 points, 12 of those points coming off of three point shots. Tuttle owed a lot to their long distance shooting, with 27 of the Tigers’ 64 points coming from three point shots alone.

While the big center Dalton Secrist only scored 4 points in the game he played solid defensively using his height and length to contest every shot in the paint. Secrist can be one of the players credited for the win and the defensive effort that led to the Broncos scoring only 39 points.

The second half saw more of the same from the Tigers, but this time with a few fresh faces in the lineup. Lester remained on the court most of the came but the Tiger’s bench saw most of the action for the second half.

“We have a confident team anyway,” head coach Paul Mueser on what the win does for the Tigers.  “I think every win that we get along the way makes them more confident because they are such great kids. They’re not going to get over confident after this game because they are too proud of themselves. “
