North Tahoe basketball | Tyler scores 22 as boys defeat Quincy
December 3, 2013
The North Tahoe boys basketball team opened its season with a 63-55 nonleague win at Quincy on Monday.
The Lakers outscored the Trojans in every quarter except the fourth. They led 25-20 at the half and 41-31 after three quarters.
Senior point guard Alex Tyler, last year’s Division III Mount Rose League MVP, went 9-for-9 from the free-throw line en route to a team-high 22 points.
Senior Noah McDermott, fresh off his second straight state title in cross-country, contributed 14 points to the win, while Mitchell Myers scored 10 and Nick Joslin nine. Joslin was an efficient 4-for-5 from the field. He also pulled down eight rebounds and blocked five shots.
The Lakers as a whole shot 50 percent from the field and were 11-of-12 at the charity stripe.
“It was a great way to start off the year with a road win, and against a tough opponent,” said second-year North Tahoe coach Frank Wright.
Quincy junior Brady Rick led all scorers with 23 points to go along with his 10 rebounds. Erik Schwartz added 12 points for the Trojans.
North Tahoe will travel to Las Vegas on Thursday to play in the Monster Legacy Tournament against some of the nation’s top teams.
“It will be a major challenge and an incredible learning experience,” Wright said.
