Comments From Okoboji Boys Coach Ryan Stumbo

We were so proud of the way we played tonight. Central Lyon has some really nice guard play and every time they made a run at us we were able to answer tonight by making the right play for a good look offensively. So many guys stepped up in different ways for us tonight. Lucas Lorenzen was incredible and really got going both inside and out. Jamison Helmers not only scored and hit some big shots but made everyone around him better tonight with some great assists and reads. Will Hoffman played an outstanding game defensively off the bench and hit some big time threes for us, and Tyler Adams, Kyle Martin, and Jaden Heller all had big time shots, rebounds, and hustle plays we needed to win. Zach Lutmer had an outstanding game for Central Lyon. It was just another hard fought game between two teams that really came to compete.
