IHCC also got plenty of production in the post with both Akloda Manyang and Malik Dime returning to the floor. The big men hadn’t played at the same time on the floor since the Warriors first road game of the season back on Nov. 25.
Dime, who had been absent since being injured during the Warriors’ trip to Northwest Florida back on Thanksgiving weekend, came back with a vengeance. The freshman from Columbus, Ohio, had 13 points and blocked five shots while a 15-rebound effort from sophomore Majok Deng paced a dominant 71-38 rebounding advantage for Indian Hills.
“I really wanted to get those big guys (Malik and Akloda) to get back sweating again,” Peery said. “I think that was a heck of a week in November on the road. Those wins are looking better and better each day. “
No. 1 IHCC will enjoy its 15-0 start for only a couple of weeks. Indian Hills is back on the floor as the hosts for the Courtside Classic starting on Friday, Jan. 3. IHCC will open 2014 facing Indiana Dabney that night at approximately 7 p.m.
I’m always excited to get the guys a break at this point. We’ll be getting right back at it sooner rather than later,” Peery said.
IHCC’s 128-point effort is the fifth consecutive game in which the Warriors have hit the century mark. Indian Hills saw its scoring average rise to 111.5 points per game, second in the nation only to Texas school Temple’s 119.1 ppg average.
