Junior Sha-Shawn Drayton posted 20 points as the Montis controlled the offensive and defensive glass leading to many second chance points. Sullivan West junior Brian Stauch led the Bulldogs with eight points. Sullivan West (0-1) was 12-for-26 from the stripe (41%), while Monticello (1-0) was a bit better at 13-for-27 (48%). Sullivan West Coach Bruce Nober didn’t sugarcoat the outcome. “We didn’t handle their defensive pressure or match their intensity. We never really got into the flow,” he noted adding, “it’s a long season.” Sullivan West will travel to the Walton Tournament on December 4 and December 6 looking to right the ship.
