The Wahoo Warriors survived the Platteview Trojans 68-61 on Thursday night in Wahoo in Capitol Conference action.
The Warriors and Trojans were tied at 12 early in the first quarter. A Gerardo Madrid trey, his second of the game, followed by an Owen Hancock lay up and Trevor Kasischke basket, put Wahoo up 20-12 at the end of one.
In the second quarter, Platteview went on a 15-2 run to open the quarter to take a 27-23 lead. The Warriors battled back, and back-to-back Trey Scheef buckets gave the Warriors a 32-31 lead at the half.
The third quarter saw Platteview stretch out their lead to 44-39. A Kasischke trey cut the lead to 44-42, and a Scheef lay up tied the game at 44. The Trojans led 48-45 when Hancock’s trey tied the game at 48. The Warriors led 50-48 after three.
A Platteview trey gave the Trojans a five-point lead at 58-53 with 5:00 left. A Scheef trey cut the lead to 58-56. A three-point play from Kasischke put the Warriors up 59-58 with 3:30 left. A Kasischke offensive rebound and putback put Wahoo up 61-58.

Scheef added two more free throws with 38 seconds left, and Keeney added a free throw with 20 seconds left to account for the 68-61 win.
“Give Platteview a ton of credit for shooting the ball really well,” commented Head Coach Kevin Scheef. “To be able to win a game when the other team hits 16 treys does not happen very often. Rebounding continues to be a major problem for us. They hit three of their treys following offensive rebounds. We have to get tougher on the glass. Gerardo Madrid had a great first half for us. Triston Keeney got two huge steals for us late. Trey Scheef hit a huge three in the fourth quarter when things were not looking good. Trevor Kasischke had a huge night for us. He hit big shots, and got us a couple of great effort, offensive rebounds in the fourth quarter. He came up big!”
Platteview was 16-39 from behind the arc, and outrebounded the Warriors 35-23. The Warriors forced 18 Trojan turnovers while committing just 6 themselves.
Kasischke led the Warriors with 21 points on 2-2 shooting from behind the arc, and 5-6 at the line, to go with a team-high 8 boards. Scheef added 15 points, 6 boards, and 4 steals. Madrid added 10 points on 4-5 shooting from the field. Waido added 10 points, 5 steals, and 4 assists.

Crete hit another trey with 16 seconds left to make it 57-55. A Gerardo Madrid assist to Waido clinched the game with 10 seconds left to make it 59-55.
“Crete’s length in their 1-3-1 caused us a lot of problems. We had chances to stretch the lead and take control of the game, but were just never able to do so. It was really a grind-it-out type of game,” said Head Coach Kevin Scheef.
Waido and Scheef led the Warriors with 15 points apiece. Waido also had a team-high 8 boards. Keeney added 14 points. Kasischke added 9 points, 5 boards, and 4 assists.

“We shot the ball well tonight, which was good to see, but we were sloppy with our passes. That had been a strength of ours this year, in taking care of the ball, but we did not do that tonight.

When we got down six in the third quarter, we did not panic and made the plays that we needed to,” said Head Coach Kevin Scheef. “Trey and Trevor’s back-to-back treys to tie it up were huge, as were Trevor’s two free throws, Thomas’ follow up dunk, and Owen’s play down the stretch.”

Aurora opened the third quarter with a score to make it 20-16. The Warriors then went on a 7-0 run. A Triston Keeney bucket, followed by two free throws and a trey from Trey Scheef, gave the Warriors some breathing room at 27-16.
Over the next six minutes, the Warriors went on another 8-2 run to push the lead to 35-18, with seven of those points coming from Thomas Waido, and a free throw from Trevor Kasischke.
“This was a game that was really good for us,” said Head Coach Kevin Scheef. “Aurora was incredibly patient. That is not how we want to play, but I thought we showed great poise and found a way to win a very slow, grind-it-out type of game.”
Scheef led the Warriors with 15 points on 3-6 shooting from behind the arc. Waido had 13 points on 6-8 shooting from the field to go with a game high 7 steals. Keeney added 10 points. Kasischke had a team-high 6 boards. Wahoo committed just 10 turnovers, while turning over the Huskies 20 times.
Wahoo improved to 2-0, while Aurora fell to 0-2. The Warriors will host Wayne on Friday night, and Logan View on Saturday afternoon.

The Wahoo Warriors defeated the Bennington Badgers 76-59 in the season opener at home on Thursday night.
The game was close throughout the first quarter, with the Warriors leading 18-14 after one.
The game was still close midway through the second quarter. Wahoo was up 25-23, when they went on a 9-0 run. A three-point play from Trey Scheef, a Gerardo Madrid layup, followed by back-to-back buckets from Thomas Waido pushed the lead to 34-23. The half ended with Wahoo up 36-26.
An 8-0 run to open the third quarter busted the game open. A Trevor Kasischke lay up, a Scheef trey, and a Braden Harris trey made it 44-26. A Scheef trey at the end of the third quarter gave Wahoo its largest lead at 61-39. The Badgers would not mount a serious threat in the fourth quarter, and Wahoo went on to the 76-59 win.
“That was a great way to start the season. Bennington always has a tough team, and with the limited practice time due to state football, I thought we played really well,” commented Head Coach Kevin Scheef. “We played hard, and competed throughout. Our decision making has to get better, but overall it was a good first game.”
Scheef led the Warriors with 27 points on 10-19 shooting from the floor. Waido added 18 on 6-10 from the floor, and 6-7 from the line, to go with 8 boards. Harris added 10 points, Kasischke added 8 points, and Triston Keeney was a stat stuffer with 6 points, 10 boards, 5 steals and 5 assists.
The Warriors outrebounded the Badgers 36-25, and forced 25 Bennington turnovers.
The Warriors travel to Aurora on Friday night to take on the Huskies.
