Cedarcrest defeated the visiting Coupeville High School boys basketball team 74-27 Tuesday, Dec. 13.
While the Wolves suffered another lopsided loss, coach Anthony Smith saw progress in his team.
He said, "We played a lot better, played well the first quarter. Our execution was much better."
Coupeville trailed 24-11 heading into the second period, then a late run by the Red Wolves helped Cedarcrest up the lead to 39-19 at the break, according to Smith.
Cedarcrest outscored Coupeville 23-2 in the third quarter as the mistakes mounted.
Smith said, "We still have a lot of problems with turnovers, unforced turnovers. If not, it would have been a closer game."
Freshman Aaron Curtin "played a really good game," Smith said, leading the Wolves with 10 points and six rebounds.
Mitch Pelroy scored eight points, Taylor Ebersole four, Gavin O'Keefe three and Nick Streubel two.
The Wolves (0-2, 0-3) have a busy weekend. They go to King's (2-0, 4-1) Friday, Dec. 16, for a 7 p.m. game and then host University Prep (1-4) Saturday at noon.Contact Whidbey News Times Sports editor Jim Waller at email@example.com or 360-675-6611 ext. 5060.
