Swanton boys basketball won their second straight game Wednesday, defeating Otsego on the road by a final of 54-39.
“We got off to a slow start offensively but we did a good job taking away their shooter (Parker Vollmar) and making them shoot outside shots,” said Bulldog coach Matt Smith. “We got the pace moving in the second quarter and Gunnar Oakes got going inside and in transition. We didn’t shoot very well on the night but I thought our shots were very good. We just have to finish inside a little better.”
Oakes shot 60 percent (9 for 15) from the field to lead the Bulldogs with 22 points. Bryce McComb finished with 12, while Devin Jones and Antonio Cervantes each had six.
Oakes also had nine rebounds, Robbie Gilsdorf eight, while McComb and Cervantes had six.
Paul Glassford shot 67 percent (6 for 9) for 12 points and had 10 rebounds for a double-double. Vollmar added 10 points for the Knights.
Swanton (6-2) is in action tonight in a holiday tournament at Sylvania Southview where they will face Toledo Central Catholic. Tip-off is slated for approximately 7:15 p.m.
