With its height advantage, St. Clair was too much for the seventh-grade boys Friday in a 42-17 home drubbing.
Cleveland baskets were few and far between. The Clippers were down 4-0 when Keegen Lamont steered down the baseline for their first bucket.
Nathan Seeman (above) followed with a hook shot from behind the baseline that found its way through the net, but the Cyclones went on a 9-point rampage from there before Caleb Possin’s basket from behind the arc ended the rally.
Bode Bartell pulled down a defensive rebound and navigated down the floor for a layup and the last two points of the half. The Clippers were down 19-9 at the recess.
St. Clair added four points to start the second half before Judd Gibbs scored. With a Gavin Karels steal and a Possin base-line drive for a basket, the Clippers trailed 28-13. After a Lamont steal, Seeman grabbed an offensive rebound and scored and later took a cross-court pass up and in for the game’s final basket.
Todd Karels had coaching duties in place of Tray Jones.
