Otselic Valley 72, Madison 29
SOUTH OTSELIC – The last time Otselic Valley started the season 10-0, it went deep into the Section III playoffs, but head coach Dave Loomis was quick to point out there is still half the regular season to play.
“This is a good group of kids, like that 2001 team (that started 10-0),” Loomis said. “There still is a lot more basketball to be played.”
The Vikings led by 15 at halftime and by 25 after three quarters as Loomis unloaded his bench the final eight minutes. In that time, the OV reserves finished the game with a 16-0 stanza. “I was able to utilize some of the bench players who have not seen much time the last few games,” Loomis said. “Tonight, everybody that went into the game made a solid contribution. It was a real good showing and I was glad to have this game.”
Taylor Duell scored 12 points, David Cerasani tacked on nine, while Dillon Brown, Eric Wentworth, and Robert Guyer all had eight points for the Vikings.
