Culver snaps skid at OD
Trent Elliott had his first double figure outing in four games, and the Culver Cavaliers snapped a three-game skid while handing host Oregon-Davis a 69-40 loss on the road at The Den Wednesday.
Elliott knocked down four 3s on his way to a game-high 22 points, his first double digit production since Culver’s last win at Westville Jan. 11.
Jacoda Anderson and Micah Budzinski each put up 10 in the second straight double figure outing for the duo, meanwhile, as the Cavs tallied a total of 17 assists knocking down 25 of 43 (58 percent) shots from the field for the win.
OD was paced by Craig McIntosh’s 18 points, while freshman Blake Hurford scored eight in the loss, which followed the Bobcats’ first win of the season in a Bi-County consolation game against Argos Saturday, a 48-47 thriller.
