Coach Ben Klapperich on what he saw:
Bradley Andrew’s buzzer-beating lay in lifted Charles City to 3-3 on the year and sank New Hampton to 4-5. The Chickasaws led by 11 late in the second quarter before the Comets ended the half on a 10-0 ending on this basket from Marcus Cranshaw.
Jackson Molstead finished with a game-high 35 points and Tristan Sweizter collected 30. Klapperich says this is a much needed win going into Friday’s matchup with Waver-Shell Rock.
