Raider boys shake slow start, pull away for 61-43 win
MAXWELL — Coming off a win in which it scored 93 points, the Collins-Maxwell-Baxter boys basketball team was understandably a little too fired up going into Tuesday night’s game.
The Raiders (4-8, 3-7 Heart of Iowa Conference) came out of the gate with turnover after turnover, but eventually settled down in the second and third quarters to to earn a 61-43 win over Saydel. An odd fourth quarter gave the Eagles a chance at a comeback, but CMB was able to effectively hold them off.
“What an ugly game. Thank God we can shoot the ball,” Raiders coach Gary Plunkett said. “We shot over 50 percent, but with how ugly it was, we’re lucky to come out with a win.”
