Senior Owen White's three point shot in Friday's win against Tomahawk which gave White his 1,000 career point.
The Rhinelander High School boys' basketball easily cruised to an 80-28 Great Northern Conference victory on Friday night, and in the process senior standout Owen White hit a scoring milestone. The Hodags advanced to 3-0 in the conference standings after their win at the Jim Miazga Community Gymnasium. 

White would connect on an open triple at the top of the key with 9:34 left in the second half to hit the 1,000-point mark for his career. It also was one of 12 outside shots Rhinelander would score on the night, as White finished with 22 points in the win and RHS went 12-21 (57.1%) from beyond the arc.

Coach Derek Lemmens would use a timeout immediately after White's shot, and he received a well-deserved standing ovation from the crowd and his scoring milestone. Although White could have probably hit the 1,000-point mark late his junior year if he did not miss five games due to injury. 

Rhinelander would have nine players score in the win and four finishing with double-digit points. Junior Howard was right behind White with 21 points, senior Brad Comer added 12 points, and Bryce Schickert finished the night with 10 points.

The Hodags did not change their game-plan and several players found open looks as the team recorded 14 assists on 14 shots in the first half. White started the scoring off after going 1-2 from the line and adding a triple right after. The three-ball became contagious from there, and fellow senior Reese Flores, Comer would also connect from outside. RHS would go on to take a convincing 45-18 lead at halftime. 

Not only was Rhinelander successful offensively, but their defense would force 30 Tomahawk turnovers on the night. The only Hatchet to finish with double digit points was Jackson List, who charted 10 points. 

The Hodags did not let up the pressure and Howard would bury a triple in the opening possession of the second half. Flores and Comers each had steals and transition assists to Comer to follow and White would add another three. Senior Jared Haugh had a steal and an assist to Schickert also in transition and a few short possessions later would lead to White's 1,000 career point.

Rhinelander set up a lob play for White for a dunk-attempt prior, and but the Hatchets and the pass did not allow White to get the shot off. That didn't discourage the 6'6" senior, who would splash a three on the next play with no hesitation. RHS would take a commanding 71-24 after White’s 1,000 point. 

The Hodags are now 9-1 overall after the GNC win and will have a much tougher opponent to battle on Friday night. Rhinelander will host Antigo (1-2 GNC) at the Jim Miazga Community Gymnasium, with tip-off set for 6:15PM. The RHS girls' will also play Antigo, and will follow at 8:00PM.
