‘Hot’ Dogs pound Tribe early, 59-34



Nederland actually attempted only one shot from 15 feet out in the first period, and scored 15 of their 17 points under the basket.

Hitting 7-of-10 from the field in the opening quarter was obviously a sign of things to come later in the first half.

After leading the undersized Indians 17-7 in first, the ‘Dogs decided to change gears and start firing from outside and they were quite successful hitting four shots from long range.

Senior guard Tyler Toon, who missed nine games earlier in the season, was outstanding in the middle two periods canning four from deep three-point land and added a layup to finish with 14.

After hitting 7-of-10 field goals in the opening quarter, Nederland was even more impressive in the second by draining 9-of 11 from the floor to dash to halftime leading by 30 points, 55-25.

Weisbrod and Toon were the only Bulldogs in double figures, while the Indians leading scorer was Jacobs Robbins with eight. For the game Nederland finished hitting 55.9 percent from the field (24-43), while the Indians were hitting just 36.1 percent (13-of-36).

“Nederland has an outstanding team both offensively and with their pressure defense, they were just too much for us tonight,” said Indian coach Pat Abel. “Our kids have to just keep working hard and I know they will.”

While the Bulldogs breezed past the Indians, when they travel to Ozen Friday night, they’ll have to be hitting on all cylinders to remain unbeaten in district play.
