Rangers rout White Pigeon 111-76 to improve to 12-0

CASSOPOLIS — Two games in two days was not a problem for the Cassopolis boys basketball team.

The Rangers improved to 12-0 overall and 10-0 in the Southwest 10 with a 73-65 win over host Bloomingdale Friday night.

Cassopolis had a quick turnaround as it hosted White Pigeon on Saturday.

A lack of energy was no problem for the Rangers who routed the Chiefs 111-76.

On Friday night, Cassopolis trailed the Cardinals 47-43 heading into the fourth quarter, but outscored the hosts 30-18 to pull out the victory.

Tyrese Hunt-Thompson had a game-high 22 points, while Kiambu Gary added 18.

““It was a good, close game, which I think is a good thing,” Cassopolis coach Ricky Evans said. “Bloomingdale pushed us. They played hard. I think our pressure gave them problems and we were able to get the win. Free throws were a problem again. If we don’t start making free throws it going to cost us at the wrong time.”

Against White Pigeon, Gary scored 29 points, Hunt-Thompson 25, Walter Lee 18, Xander Smith 12 and Brandon Anderson 10.

The Rangers scored 53 points in the first half and 58 points in the second half to turn the game into a rout.
