PRESCOTT -- The Cardinals had all dimensions working against Elk Mound.

On Monday, Jan. 9, the Prescott boys basketball team earned an 82-70 victory in a nonconference game against the visiting Mounders (6-4). 

Prescott (9-1) point guard Petey Brookshaw and senior center Owen Hamilton each scored 26 points.

"Petey was very aggressive off the dribble (tonight)," head coach Nick Johnson said, "which created some good looks for Owen."

Brookshaw, who returned last week from a lower-back injury, also helped create good looks for Cardinals waiting to shoot.

Senior Luke Murphy scored 12 points and senior Joe Roosen had 11 points. Roosen made three 3-pointers and Murphy had two. 

All the facets of the offense working are great, but the Cardinals' defense has been one consistent concern for Johnson.

He cited Roosen as playing "great defensively" and said that the defense was "definitely better" than it has been.
