Subiaco returned to conference play last week, traveling to Waldron and Dover, and hosting Mena in a makeup game from the December ice storms. The Trojans found their game with two outstanding performances on the road, and a solid performance at home.
On Tuesday, Subiaco traveled to Waldron to take on the Bulldogs and their outstanding big man, Hunter Ball. Ball wore the Trojans out in the first game last year with 38 points. The Trojans also had to contend with some good three-point shooting, making Waldron a very difficult team to guard.
The game started slowly with each team trading buckets until late in the first period when the Trojans went up 14-11. The second period was all Subiaco as they tossed in 19 points while holding Waldron to four. The second half played out much the same as the first as the Trojans rolled to 74-42 win.
Subiaco had balanced scoring with six players scoring between nine and 16 points. Cash Krueger led the balanced attack with 16, followed by David Johnson, Chris Reed and John Vines all tossing in 12. Kelly Hollis and Kamron Hurst each tossed in nine, with Hurst going three for three from behind the arc.
On Friday, the Trojans may have had the best offensive performance seen in a while, scoring 51 points in the first half. In the 25 point first period, Cash Krueger was four for four from three point land. As a team, the Trojans were 11 for 13 from behind the arc. Twenty Trojans played with ten scoring to make for a fun night for Subiaco.
Cash Krueger scorched the nets in his 16 minutes of play for 26 points. John Vines dominated inside for 18 with Chris Reed, David Johnson, Christian Lowery, Kamron Hurst, Chris Post, Evan Strobel, Kelly Hollis and Alex Walker all getting in on the scoring, as the Trojans settled for an 80-41 win.
On Saturday, the Trojans hosted Mena. The Trojans were not as hot as the night before and pounded the ball inside against the smaller Bearcats. Subiaco once again had several people in the scoring column, thanks largely to unselfish play and good passing. Chris Reed continued his high assist rate as he continued to drive and find the open man. Cash Krueger led Subiaco with 16 points followed by Kelly Hollis with 15. John Vines and Chris Reed tossed in 10 and 9 as the Trojans saw all 20 players play for the second game and settled for a 62-41 win.
Subiaco hosts Dardanelle Thursday night with games starting at 5 p.m. On Tuesday, the Trojans make the long trip to Mena.
