Rockets struggle to liftoff, fall to HornetsPublished 10:09am Wednesday, January 8, 2014
HENNING — The Underwood boys basketball team struggled to hit a shot Tuesday as Hwy. 210 rival Henning claimed a 56-40 win in front of its home crowd.
“As a team we shot 28 percent form the field, and it is just to difficult to win games when you aren’t hitting your shots with a better percentage,” Rockets coach Jesse Arbuckle said. “We were getting the open looks that we wanted on the inside and perimeter, but we just couldn’t knock them down whether it was a three-pointer or a two-foot shot.”
Andrew Smith led the Hornets with 17 points, while teammate Kaleb Thalmann dropped in 10 tallies.
Aaron Thompson and Dan Anderson each scored 14 points for the Rockets. Thompson added 10 rebounds to pick up a double-double.
The Rockets will look to end its recent skid as it travels to Verndale to take on the Pirates at 7:30 p.m. Thursday.
