DeBoer, Spartans shoot down Oak Harbor / Boys basketball

The Oak Harbor High School boys basketball team found itself on the wrong end of a record-setting performance Friday, Jan. 5, at Stanwood.

Karl DeBoer established a new Stanwood school record by sinking 10 three-point shots on the way to 39 points, leading the Spartans to a 100-46 win over the Wildcats.

Oak Harbor was unable to capitalize on the momentum it built by winning three of its four previous games. Stanwood took control early by racing to a 26-14 first-quarter lead. The Spartans scored more than 20 points in each period and led 49-26 at halftime and 76-42 after three quarters.

Stanwood (3-1, 7-5) shot a blistering 60 percent in the game (38-for-63), including 62 percent (13-for-21) from beyond the arc. Oak Harbor shot 36 percent (15-for-42).

DeBoer drained 10 three-pointers in 16 tries.

The Spartans dominated the game in all areas, outscoring Oak Harbor 31-7 off turnovers (the ‘Cats had 20 turnovers, Stanwood 10), 48-18 in the paint and 13-5 in second-chance points.

Stanwood out-rebounded Oak Harbor 38-18, and dished out 23 assists to the Wildcats’ nine.

Ozell Jackson led Oak Harbor with 10 points and five rebounds. Gavin Allen scored 9 points, Kevin Schuldt 6, Dorian Hardin 4, Terrell Crumpton 4, Haven Brown 4, Austin Boesch 3, Gabe Salinger 2 and Weston Whitefoot 2.

The Wildcats (1-3, 3-9) host Mountlake Terrace (3-1, 10-1) at 7:15 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 9.
