Top-ranked Glencoe edges Pawnee in battle of state powerhouses


The Glencoe Panthers and Pawnee Black Bears haven't really been pushed so far this season. In the championship of the Mike Kerr Classic, Glencoe prevailed in a physical 73-67 victory.

“I didn’t feel like we finished as well as we could have,” Glencoe coach John Lazenby said. “But we finished. There is something to be said for that.”

The first quarter was back and forth with the Panthers holding a narrow 15-12 lead. Things got a little heated as Glencoe coach John Lazenby picked up a technical towards the end of the quarter. That seemed to spark the Panthers as they took control in the second quarter, outscoring Pawnee 24-12.

“I told the guys at halftime that I was guilty of being too jacked up,” Lazenby said. “I got a little over zealous. I knew the officials would keep me in line and they did. We kind of settled down and started playing and got even keeled a little bit and executed some pretty good ball.”

Jake Lazenby scored 11 points and Ty Lazenby scored eight points in the quarter. The Panthers shutout Pawnee's Gideon Gardner to three points in the second after he scored seven in the first.

“Gardner and (Nathan) Brock are the best players in the area,” coach Lazenby said. “They are sophomores. We felt like the key to beating them was handle their pressure, which I thought we did a good job and try to contain Gideon and the Brock kid.”

Pawnee got a little boost as coach David Page sat with them on the sidelines. Page, is recovering from a broken leg and was in a wheel chair.

“It felt awesome,” Page said. “I got back last night. It was the first time out. I didn’t know if I could make it through the whole game and I did. Tonight, felt even better and got involved and broke a little bit of a sweat.”
