The Rhinelander High School boys' basketball team found themselves ahead most o the first half in a Great Northern Conference contest at Antigo, but could not fend off the Robins in the second half and fell 53-47 at Sheldon Fieldhouse. The Hodags fell to 2-3 in the GNC and are now 3-7 overall this season.

Antigo senior Nevin Cornelius led Antigo with the game-high of 20 points including a triple with just under 11 minutes remaining that sparked a 7-0 run for the Robins that Rhinelander was unable to recover from. Senior Tanner Resch also recorded 16 points for the Robins. Cornelius and Resch combined for 25 points in the second half and the Antigo also went 14-19 from the free throw line in the final 18 minutes.

The Robins opened the game with the first points but Rhinelander responded with seven unanswered points to take a 7-2 lead. Antigo followed that with a 6-1 run of their own to tie the game up 8-8. Senior Quinn Lamers sparked the Hodags' offense with back-to-back threes and senior Drake Martin also scored inside to push their to lead eight at 18-10. But despite their advantage RHS struggled against Antigo's 1-3-1 half-court defense. Antigo closed the half with an 8-2 run to pull within two points at halftime.

It was a back and forth battle in the second for both teams, as the score was tied four times in the final half. Junior Ross Skeen connected on a three to put RHS ahead 32-29 but Cornelius answered from outside and the Robins never trailed from that point on. Junior Elliott Orgeman put Antigo up 40-36 with his only triple of the night.

Lamers hit a three with just under 30 seconds left in the game to cut the Robin’s lead to two at 49-47. But a pair of made free throws by Orgeman and a steal from Cornelius and two more free throws put the game out of reach.

Rhinelander's offense was led by Lamers, who finished the night with 15 points and Skeen added 10 points. Seniors Peyton Erikson and Martin each recorded eight points. The Hodags will compete in another GNC match up on Tuesday when they travel to Tomahawk. Tip-off is set for 7:15PM.

The Rhinelander High School boys' basketball team dropped their second straight non-conference contest on Friday night at Stevens Point. The Panthers downed the Hodags 89-63 at the SPASH Fieldhouse and was led by senior Evan Vollendorf, who recorded 29-points.

RHS struggled defensively throughout the night and their offense didn't start rolling until the second half, but they were unable to recover from the early damage. Stevens Point raced out to an early 10-0 lead and took advantage of Hodag turnovers, forced shots, and missed bunnies. Vollendork added a pair of triples in the early run.

Rhinelander finally got on the board at 15:14 in the first half when sophomore Jacksen Smith was fouled shooting a three-pointer and knocked down all three free-throws. The Hodags did not make their first field goal until just over seven minutes into the game, when senior Kirk Mathews scored on a post move inside and completed the three-point play after being fouled to bring RHS within eight at 6-14. Point responded with 10-2 run including a few drives to the basket and offensive rebounds and put-backs to put SPASH up 24-8.

Vollendorf had a dunk with just over four minutes left in the first half, but the Hodags did not back down and would respond with seven unanswered points. Sophomore Caleb Olcikas sparked the run with a triple and a pair of bonus free-throws and senior Drake Martin also scored on an offensive rebound. Point would finish the half on a 7-3 run including another three from Vollendorf with five seconds left and the Panthers would take a 43-22 lead at halftime.

Rhinelander nearly doubled their points in the second half, but their defense was unable to shut down Vollendorf and the Panthers offense that went on to score 46 points in the final 18 minutes which included a 10-2 run to open the half. Junior guard Quinn Lamers would lead the offense in the second half and would finish with 13 points including three triples in the second half.

In all, nine different Hodags scored but only five of them scored in the first half. Junior Ross Skeen finished with double-digits, recording all 11-points in the second half. Olcikas added nine points, seven coming in the first half. Seniors Payton Johnson, Jason Huseby, and Alex Kubeny also all scored in the final 18-minutes.

After Vollendorf, the Panthers had two other players with double digits; senior Austin Beyer (11-points) and junior Gavin Hyer (10-points). Stevens Point also shot 47% from beyond the arc and recorded 10 more rebounds on the night.

Rhinelander fell to 0-2 overall this season and will open their Great Northern Conference schedule on Friday when they host Northland Pines. Varsity tip-off is set for 7:15PM at the Jim Miazga Community Gymnasium.
