2023 Game 4 Recap: Rockridge 56, Lewistown 30

Before mid-December, Rockridge likely had their sights set on a #1 seed at the Macomb-Western Holiday Tournament.  Then, a string of tough competition saw them limp into the holiday break losing 3 of their last 4 and they were awarded the #3 seed instead.  Because of this, many wondered what kind of team we’d be getting on Day 1 of the tournament.  The Rockets answered the call and rebounded in a big way, knocking off Lewistown by a score of 56-30.

Rockridge’s victory was written by a balanced attack that saw four players score between 10 and 13 points.  Landon Bull led the way with 13 points, six rebounds, and four assists.  All three stats were game-highs.  TJ Wilson and Caleb Cunico both tied with 11 points and Carson Klemme added 10.  Klemme also swiped four steals.  This game was won in the paint, where Rockridge dominated to the tune of 32-12.  Turnovers were also lopsided, with the Rockets forcing 20 Indian turnovers.

Lewistown ran into a Rockridge-sized buzzsaw and they couldn’t recover.  The Indians did outscore Rockridge based on bench points, where they held a 17-9 advantage.  Lewistown was led in scoring by Drake Hamm’s eight.  Three players (Gavin Pace, John Barclay, and Parker Roddis) each finished with five points.  The Indians only shot four free throws, but they most of it, hitting three.

Rockridge (9-3) moves on to the round of 8, where they will face Farmington in Game 14 at 6:30pm on Friday.  Lewistown will face off with Eureka in Game 10, Friday morning at 10:30am.
