Boys' basketball: Well-rounded effort pushes Wolves past Indees
The Elmwood/Plum City Wolves boys' basketball team ended its losing streak on Monday, Jan. 7, by holding onto a three-point lead against their Independence hosts.
EPC's (4-5, 1-3) defense forced 17 Indee turnovers on Monday night, and all four of the Wolves' wins have come when they've held their opponents to less than 50 points. Tyler Maxwell and Luke Webb both contributed three steals to the Wolves' defensive effort.
Offensively, the Wolves were led by Maxwell who finished with 11 points on 3-for-8 shooting from the field, but Webb, Noah Gansluckner, Jackson Glampe and Nic Forster also did their part in lifting the team's offense. Webb finished with 10 points, four rebounds and a block; Gansluckner added eight points, nine rebounds and four assists; Glampe recorded eight points, eight rebounds and two steals; and Forster added seven points, two assists and a steal.
The Wolves will return to Dunn-St. Croix Conference play on Thursday, Jan. 10, when they host the Spring Valley Cardinals (6-4, 4-0).
