The Syracuse-Dunbar-Avoca Rockets lost to Wahoo on Friday, Jan. 4, but came back on Saturday to snag a win against Louisville, 38-28, to improve to 7-4 on the season.

Wahoo 82, S-D-A 54
The Warriors jumped out to an early lead and never looked back.  Wahoo used their aggressive 1-3-1 defense and their fast paced offense to run out to a, 26-10, lead after one quarter and a, 46-20, lead at halftime.  The Rockets did improve on the offensive end of the floor in the second half and were able to score 34 second half points but still fell short by the score of 82-54.
Wil McCoy led the Rockets in scoring by hitting 22 points and Ben Nannen added 13.  McCoy and Grant Stubbendeck each had seven rebounds, as the Rockets could just not keep up with the Warriors all night.  "I really hoped we could compete with them in this game, but it was very clear early on that they were just too much for us," Coach Mark Hrabik said.

Syracuse 38, Louisville 28
The Rockets rebounded on Saturday as they traveled to Louisville and came away with a 38-28 win.  It was a slow paced game through out as each team used a strong defensive effort to shut the other team down.  Wil McCoy again led the Rockets in scoring with 15 points and Ben Nannen and Grant Stubbendeck each had eight points.  
McCoy had nine rebounds and Stubbendeck added seven boards.  
"We continue to struggle scoring right now and it is something that we need to improve upon quickly heading into a series of games that we can definitely win,” Hrabik said.
“This week of  practice will be very important in our attempt to fix our offensive woes."
The Rockets only have one game this week as they travel to Arlington on Friday, Jan. 11, for a Capitol Conference showdown.
