BOYS BASKETBALL: Tigers maul Eagles 85-33

MARSHALL – The Marshall boys basketball team came out blazing against New Ulm on Tuesday night, scoring 58 first-half points en route to a 85-33 win over their section rival.

“I thought our guys did a really good job of coming out in the first half,” said Marshall head coach Travis Carroll. “That’s kind of been a point of emphasis for us since we have had kind of a slow start in the last two games.”

Riley Sharbono, who scored 29 first half points, finished the night with a game-high 34. He also had five rebounds, two steals and a blocked shot.

“Our guys did a really good job of sharing the ball tonight and did a good job of finding Riley when he was open,” said Carroll. “That definitely causes problems for other teams when you are able to knock shots down.”

C.D. Douglas scored 14 points to go with two steals while Drum added 8 points and two steals.

“It’s good to have this performance tonight and have some confidence going into next week,” Carroll said.

The Tigers finish up the regular season against another section opponent in Mankato East when they travel to Mankato on Thursday.

“We really need to be ready to go when playoffs start next week,” Carroll said.
