12/28/23 Basketball: McDonell Macks 52, Ladysmith 43

In their first game of the 2nd Annual Denny Laramy Holiday Classic, the Macks (5-2, 3-1 Western Cloverbelt Conference) were a little slow out of the gate offensively, as were the Lumberjacks (5-2, 4-1 Heart O'North Conference), as neither team could stretch their advantage to more than two possessions throughout the first half.

Out of the gate in the second half, McDonell struggled initially with the Ladysmith pressure defense, surrendering the lead on a couple of occasions in a back-and-forth, tightly contested fight. In the final minutes, however, the Macks hit timely baskets and proved their mettle from the free throw line, vaulting themselves to the title game of the tournament. 

WOGO "RadioActive" Award Watch:
Junior guard Jordan Sikora led the way for the Macks with 16 points, including a very strong first half, while sophomore forward Karson Galvez scored all 12 of his points after the break in a strong second half effort. Junior guard Cooper Mittermeyer knocked in a trio of treys, including finishing two four-point plays.
