St. Marys sizzles on offense, beats O-G 67-59

February 15, 2014

“Put on a hat!” St. Marys boys basketball coach Dan Hegemier bellowed out at Nathan Wilker as the junior exited Memorial High School after a 67-59 win against the defending Division III state champ  Ottawa-Glandorf.

It was the most forceful instruction Hegemier had to give out Friday night. As the St. Marys boys basketball team gains confidence,  Hegemier can do less steering and let his athletes do their thing on the court.

The Roughriders improvised their way to a fourth straight win by answering every O-G rally with one of their own.
