(Statistics edited Dec. 1 per QuickStats)

The Greene County boys basketball team hit the Collins-Maxwell gym in Maxwell at full speed Tuesday night as they doubled up the C-M/Baxter Raiders 94-47 in Heart of Iowa Activities Conference play.

The Rams are 2-0 on the season and 1-0 in the conference under new head coach Chris Nelson.

The Rams lead 35-13 after the first quarter, assisted by six 3-point shots and two runs of 10 unanswered points. The Rams continued to set the pace and tone of the game and built their lead to 66-27 at halftime. (In the 2015-16 season the Rams averaged 57 points per game. They scored 77 against the Ogden Bulldogs Monday night).

The entire second half was played with a continuous clock as the point differential was more than 35 points. The Ram scoring pace slowed some but the Raiders’ pace didn’t pick up. The score at the end of three quarters was 85-38. While fans were watching for a three-digit score, Nelson gave all 14 players on the roster playing time. There were no Ram 3-pointers in the second half, but senior Jon Kersey scored his first varsity points.

Four Rams shot at better than 70 percent from the floor. Junior Wade Adcock scored 22 points, making 10 of 11 shots from 2-point range for an impressive 91 percent. Senior Trey Tucker scored 25 points, making 10 of 14 2-point shots and three of four 3-point shots for 72 percent shooting from the floor. He made two of three free throws.

Kersey and senior Chase Stoline made the only shots they took from the floor for 100 percent shooting. Stoline made one of three foul shots for three points for the game.

Senior Tommy Jacobsen had eight, senior Calvin Skalla had seven, sophomore Trey Hinote had six, junior Ben Bravard had two and senior Logan Lansman had one.

Tucker led in rebounding with seven, all of them defensive. Hinote had six rebounds, five of them defensive. Hinote was also credited with six assists. The Rams were relatively foul free, with 11 fouls total for the game. No player had more than two fouls.
