Melican Boys Secure Big Win Over Dudley

It was a big game for the Melican Roadrunners boys basketball team. They beat the Dudley Titans 73-26. Melican had the lead the whole game, and was shutting Dudley out through most of the 1st quarter. For one thing, the defense was really good. They were pressuring the Dudley players attempting to score, and with the fans help, they held Dudley to a very small amount of points. Another thing that helped keep the shutout going is that there were no fouls on Melican until late in the 1st quarter.

In the first quarter, Melican’s #23 Zachary quickly contributed with 7 points. #4 Beau and other starters helped contribute to a lot of these baskets, not just early in the game, but throughout. Early on, a lot of the scoring was on assist-less shots, but the other players helped out the scoring players later on. #33 Greg, #31 Harrim, and #22 Brendan each scored an additional 4 points. Dudley’s only basket went to #15. Melican continued to rebound the ball after the missed shots by Dudley, helping them score more points. Melican had the 21-2 lead to end the quarter.

Melican continued to dominate through the 2nd quarter. #33 Greg got 4 more points and was the quarter’s main contributor. There was a lot more assisted baskets, as the team worked together better. Dudley had multiple fouls in the 2nd, and #5 Gabe was doing well on the foul shots, picking up additional points for the team. Melican was leading 32-12 at the half after Dudley began to put up some points. #20 and #22 both scored 3 pointers in the quarter, the first two 3 point FGs of the game.

Things were looking good for Melican as they continued to keep up a high scoring game in the 3rd quarter. There were more assisted baskets in this quarter. #5 Gabe continued to make his foul shots, and #10 James (5 points) and #23 Zachary (3 points) along with #32 Ethan (4 points), #33 Greg and #22 Brendan (2 point each) all were major shooting contributors, and Melican ended up with a total of 19 points in the quarter, and took a 51-22 lead. The issue for Melican was that Dudley was scoring at a close rate to their own, and at the time had a slim chance at a comeback. #5 Brooks had scored 8 points in the period!

That all changed in the final minutes of the game. In the 4th quarter, Melican out scored Dudley 22-4. #33 Greg continued to help score, getting 5 points, and almost the whole team contributed to the scoring. #4 Beau got an impressive 3-pointer, Melican’s only 3 point FG. The team won, 73-26.
