After a strong 1st Period, the Lakewood Rangers were unable to keep pace with the top seeded Bay Rockets, who posted a 81-66 win in the 2nd round of the GLC Tournament. Senior Ayden Wacker led the Rangers in scoring with 15 points, all on three pointers, while Junior Riley Ulintz had 14. Senior Pete Patsouras had 10, junior Hakeem Quran 8, junior MJ Grayer 6, senior Mark Jarrous 6, senior JaQuan Neal 5, and senior Ahmed Muhammed 2.
Lakewood’s early lead-16-11 after one quarter-evaporated when the Rangers committed multiple turnovers and the Rockets began to hit their 3 pointers. The Ranger defense, strong early, was not sustained throughout the game, as Lakewood couldn’t effectively close out to three point shooters.
Rangers now moved to consolation bracket of tournament.
