Cantu Cans A Bunch
Slowik Heats Up Devils
Fremont 66 Grant 48
It had been 7 long years since the Packers pulled off a win on the Tiger home court and Logan Karnemaat made sure the streak ended there as he put together a monster game pouring in 37 points while ruling the glass with 20 rebounds. For good measure Karnemaat spent some serious time on defense as well slapping away 7 Tiger attempts as part of the dominant performance by the Fremont senior.
The Packers took advantage of some cold shooting by the hosts to jump off to a 9-0 lead before triples by Seth Schuitema, Connor Vanderwilt and Brett Long got the Tigers back in the game.
But not for long.
Karnemaat scored in double figures each of the last three periods and teamed with Calvin Miller to keep the Tigers from scoring inside. Of the 17 shots that fell for Grant, 11 were from beyond the arc.
Miller totaled 9 points, 9 rebounds and 5 assists while Joshua Zerfas dished out 6 assists and Carter Moon added 4 assists and 4 steals.
Carter Chase fired in a team high 19 points for the Tigers with Schuitema hitting for 11, Vanderwilt scoring 8 and Long adding 6.
The win, along with the Big Rapids win over Reed City puts the Packers in a tie with the Coyotes for the top spot in the Gold. Fremont is now 4-1 in conference play and 8-1 overall. The Tigers are now 3-2 in the league with a 5-4 mark overall.
