Early Husky runs sinks Ottumwa

DES MOINES — Other than one bad spell in the first half, the Ottumwa boys basketball team played a solid Des Moines Hoover team pretty evenly Tuesday.

Unfortunately, the Huskies 15-0 run that lasted from the end of the first quarter through early in the second put the Bulldogs in a hole they couldn’t dig out of, and they fell to Hoover, 57-39, in CIML Metro action.

“We just needed one bucket to go in and we just couldn’t get one bucket to fall,” Ottumwa coach Chris Gravett said.

Still, Gravett was pleased with the effort his team expended in the contest.

“I thought our effort was way better than it was Friday night,” he said. “I was really happy with the guys effort tonight,” he said.

Ottumwa got the breadth of its points from its post players. Carter Burns led the Bulldogs with 17 points and Austin Walker added 11.

“We had a little bit of an advantage inside,” Gravett said. “Our posts did a really good job of getting inside and getting good position.”

Ottumwa’s starting guards had a quiet game, only taking five shots between them, Gravett said. The coach, however, said he was pleased with the strides Matt Moreland has been making at point guard.

The Bulldogs went into the game at a substantial disadvantage, as Andrew Altfillisch and Chris Peden were both at less than 100 percent.

Ottumwa (1-12, 1-6) plays host to Indianola Friday at Evans Middle School in a non-conference game.
