Coach OC’s comments:  Gutty win by the kids.  Battles through lots of adversity tonight in our first road game.  Kids did a great job hanging together and it paid off for them.  Thought Nick McMurray had a great game on both ends of the floor.  Did a great job defensively in the 2nd half on Egger.  Thought Ted Brown and Cole Scieszinski both had tremendous games as well.  Both made some huge plays.
On January 2nd the Maroons traveled to Marshalltown to take on the Bobcats for the first game after the Christmas break.  The Maroons won by the score of 56-34.  Leading the Maroons were Ben Olson with 14 points, Nick McMurray with 10, and Ted Brown with 9 points.   Ted Brown also had 8 boards for the Maroons.

Coach OC’s comments:  Great win for the team on Friday.  Always nice when you have a chance to get all of the kids game minutes.  Thought we were very solid defensively and thought it was our best offensive rebounding game of the season.  Looking forward to getting back into action tomorrow!
On January 6th, the Maroons hosted Mason City on a frigid January night.  The Maroons were again victorious by the score of 63-39.  Nick McMurray and Ted Brown shared the leading scoring honors by each pouring in 12 points.  Ben Olson had 9 points and junior Stevie Sarcone added 8 points off the bench.  Leading rebounder was Nick McMurray with 7 rebounds.   Ben Olson also had 4 steals. Eleven different Maroons entered the scoring column in the game.

Coach OC’s comments: Great effort by the kids tonight.  I thought our team defense and rebounding were tremendous.  Been nice to get all of the kids some action in our last couple of games.  They need to have their hard work rewarded.  Thought Ted Brown really made his presence felt tonight.  Thought Tj and Nick ability to handle pressure and multiple defensive looks from MC was also vital. Things will be much tougher going forward.
