NORTH CRAWFORD - The North Crawford boys basketball team is on fire. The Trojans picked up where they had left off and on Thursday night, Dec. 12 they torched Kee High (Lansing, Iowa) in a 54-36 barn burner.
Lansing ran a triangle and two defense in the first half to try and slow down North Crawford’s two leading scorers Stephen Munson and Quentin Lathrop.
However, Daymian Mack stepped up with four three-pointers including three in the first half
Tayler Peery scored all seven of his points in the second half.
“Daymian Mack and Tayler Peery really stepped up for us tonight,’ Coach Chris Wettstein said later. “Lansing did a good job of limiting our two leading scorers. It is good to know that we have some guys that can step up when we need them too.”
Despite all of the defensive attention, junior guard Quentin Lathrop led the Trojans in scoring with 16 points, while senior guard Daymian Mack found the range and scored 15 points including four three-pointers. Lathrop scored two three-pointers.
The team’s leading scorer so far this season, sophomore guard Stephen Munson scored 12 points.
