KANSAS - Despite several missed lay-ups and foul shots, the Oak Harbor boys' basketball team clamped down on defense in the first half as they earned a 65-39 road victory at Lakota on Wednesday.
Oak Harbor (5-2 overall) held the Raiders to just one made shot in the first quarter, a two-point field goal over seven minutes into the game.
That allowed the Rockets to open up a ten point lead after one quarter.
Jac Alexander, who finished with 12 points, paced the Rockets' offense early and Conner Hoy buried one of his two 3-pointers in the opening half.
By the half, Oak Harbor led 30-10.
Ten different Oak Harbor players tallied points as Alex Gezo finished with 11, Tate Smith had ten, and Hoy with eight.
Hunter Wilkins scored six points in the second half while Oak Harbor outscored Lakota 23-9 in the third quarter to hold a 53-19 lead entering the final period.
Lakota was led by Tyler Gabel's ten points.
The Rockets will welcome Willard to the Launch Pad on Friday evening for a Sandusky Bay Conference Bay Division contest.
Lakota (1-5 overall) will return to SBC River Division play on Friday at Fremont St. Joseph Central Catholic.
