HUTCHINSON — It was a nice bounce-back performance for the Inman boys on Tuesday as they shook off Friday’s forgettable game with Sedgwick with a 51-44 road victory over Trinity Catholic.

It was all about the first half as the Teutons shot out to a 31-15 halftime lead. It was a good thing because Inman then scored only five points in the third quarter before steadying the ship.

Payton Froese led the way with 18 points, followed by Keaton Case with 10. Mason Thiessen just missed doubles with nine.

“We played much better tonight,” Inman coach Brett Froese said. “A lot more toughness and energy tonight. Our guards Froese, Case and (Walker) Strange really played well for us. We really attacked them off the drive and had some bench players really step up and play well for us as well. Really good effort by my kids. I thought we didn't settle tonight and really were in attack mode. They cause some problems with their size, but I thought we really battled down low as well tonight. After they way we played last Friday this was a big bounce back for us.”

Inman’s girls lost, 32-29. No game information was reported.
