Once the ball started going in, it was no contest.

The Chesterton boys basketball team blew open a 21-19 halftime lead and rolled to a 58-44 Duneland Athletic Conference victory over Lake Central on Friday night.

“We have to be good defensively. We aren’t going to score 95 points a game,” Chesterton coach Marc Urban said. “We have guys that are starting to grow up and understanding what we are trying to do defensively and then finishing it off with a rebound.”

The Trojans held LC to just 28 percent shooting through the first three quarters, including a 2-for-11 (19 percent) outing in the third quarter where they outscored the Indians 21-6.

“I felt like we did a good job of locking in on the scouting report. They run a lot of stuff and they are really good at it,” Urban said. “And we made some layups finally. We missed a lot at the rim early. We had some guys step up and make some shots for us.”

Kolton Cardenas and Tyler Nelson hit triples ahead of a Jack Eaton conventional three-point play during an 11-1 run to start the second half. The Trojans were 7-of-11 from 3-point range.

“Their zone bottled us up on the inside some,” Urban said. “We have unselfish job guys and we knew if we got some paint touches we could kick it out for open 3’s. We shoot the ball well when that happens.”

Jake Wadding led the Trojans with 12 points, while Eaton added nine points and Drew Vanderwoude had eight points.

Rounding out the scoring were Cardenas (6 points), Nelson (6 points), Alex Schmidt (5 points), Travis Grayson (4 points), Jake Warren (4 points) and Sean Elliott (3 points).

“Anytime the scoring is spread out, it just makes us harder to guard,” Urban said. “We have a guy (Wadding) who is capable of scoring 40 a night, but he doesn’t have to.”
