EARLSBORO – Trenton Nadeau knocked down six first-half treys as the Class B No. 1 Earlsboro Wildcats beat Macomb 86-40 Tuesday night.
“When you shoot that well from the field, everything looks good.,” Earlsboro Coach Russell Parsons said. “Offense looks really good when the shots are falling. We came out with good intensity and dictated the flow of the game.”
Macomb took an early lead on a Blaine Cope layup. That was the Hornets’ only lead as the Wildcats went on a 26-2 run.
Nadeau, Trey Herron and Kaveon Sharp combined for seven three-pointers in the first quarter.
Nadeau was the hot hand in the second quarter, making two more triples. Elijah Stargell scored seven in the quarter and the Wildcats took a 33-point lead into halftime.
Parsons challenged his team to come out with the same intensity in the second half.
“We talked about doing a better job of defending their post kids and keeping them off the boards,” Parsons said. “Offensively, we just needed to come out and take care of the ball and get good shots and I thought they did.”
Earlsboro came out of the locker room with the hot hand in the third quarter as Nadeau knocked down two three-pointers. Lena and Herron each added another triple and the Wildcats took a 66-28 lead.
Parsons went to his bench with three minutes left in the third quarter with his team up big.
“All those guys played meaningful minutes and we feel good having them out there in any situation,” Parsons said.
Earlsboro's Chance Bohannon continued the trend with two three-pointers in the third quarter.
Earlsboro made 18 three-pointers in the game while turning the ball over four times.
Nadeau led all scorers with 24 points. Herron and Stargell added 14 and 13 respectively. Bohannon added 10 points off the bench. Sharp chipped in seven points, five assists and three rebounds.
