Trojans use third quarter run to down Oskaloosa

(Continued)

Coach Sathoff, is Jordan Sathoff, a former Pekin star and recent graduate from the Wartburg college basketball program, where he also had a standout career.

The major reason for the run to a more than three possession advantage was a change in defenses.

“We played this defense earlier in the game and it wasn’t good,” said Fairfield coach Tyler Miklo. “It allowed us to get a couple of steals and run outs for scores.”

“It was definitely a step up in their pressure,” added Tremmel.

Matt Carr also had a big third quarter for Fairfield. He had six of his 13 points to help the Trojans lead 37-31 after three.

One of the Trojans who seemed to have his hand in everything his teammates did was Jordan Whitney. He opened the fourth with a basket to put the lead at eight. He would also go to the foul line four times in the quarter as Fairfield closed out the game.

“I’ve always tried to be the guy that does whatever the team needs,” said Whitney. “My overall stats are not a top priority for me.”

Reiter had his final seven points in the fourth quarter and he got some offensive help from Max Johnson. Johnson had all nine of his points in the game’s final five minutes.

Osky could get no closer than eight points the rest of the way, as Fairfield hit 11 free throws and and committed only two of their five turnovers for the game. Ferretti led the Trojan offense in the final quarter with seven points.

“It was a typical first game. We were sloppy at times and we didn’t do so well on the defensive glass,” said Miklo. “We’ve talked to our guys over the last few years that every game is a building block. This was a good way to start the season.”
