The Dell Rapids St Mary Cardinal boys basketball team had no problem picking up their second win of the season on Friday, December 18th. On a night the Cardinals recognized their nine seniors, they cruised to a 70-38 win over the Colman-Egan Hawks.
It took a quarter for the Cardinal offense to get rolling, but once they did, Colman-Egan couldn’t stop them. St Mary only led 11-10 after the first quarter, but that lead quickly grew to 19 points by halftime at 34-15. The Cardinals hit the 30-point running clock mark in the third quarter and led 55-25 heading into the final quarter.
Ashaun Roach-Valandra led the team with 21 points and 10 rebounds. Sam Palmer finished with 20 points, and Connor Libis added 17 points.
The nine seniors recognized before the game were Connor Libis, Connar Kangas, Sam Palmer, Colin Winberg, Hunter Griffin, Noah Dennis, Thomas Eining, Max Herber, and Ashaun Roach-Valandra.
St Mary (2-0) will travel to De Smet on Monday, December 21st as part of a girls and boys double-header. Both games can be seen on Big Sioux Media.
