Friday January 20, 2023 at Rogers High School Rogers took on Blaine in a Northwest Suburban conference match-up. Coming in Blaine with better record 7-5 , and slight favorite versus the 4-9 Royals. In a pretty tightly contest game that Blaine led 32-25 at half, Blaine came out in the end 69-60. Below are game Highlights and prospects that shined brightest in the Friday night game.
is a six-foot-one-inch 2024 guard from Blaine. Pettis is a real knockdown shooter and he displayed his ability versus the Rogers Royals. Pettis made four 3’s of different varieties, making them from all different locations and shot types. Running a SLOB play he came off a screen, another on a spot-up off a drive and another where he passed to a teammate who gave it back.
is a 2023 Senior guard for the Royals. So far on the season Whitcomb is averaging 13 points a game and put up a season high 20 versus Blaine. Whitcomb scored on dribble drives, from beyond the arc, and inside while defended. He was a good help defender coming over to draw a charge inside.
the leading scorer for the Royals drew quite a bit of attention from the in the first half, which for Blaine kept Dalluge’s scoring total at just two first half points. The six-foot-two-inch guard who was coming off a 29-point performance versus Totino Grace did start to find his groove in the 2nd half. He knocked down a few 3’s, and made a runner finding ways to keep his team within reach.
is a six-foot-five-inch wing from Blaine. The 2023 Senior put up 16 points, scoring a couple baskets inside and knocking down three 3’s to really stretch out the defense. Bohlman is an athletic wing who attacks the basket playing above it at times, and does a good job defending the basket.
the 2024 Junior point guard for Blaine really controlled pace for the Bengals with his quickness and speed. Pushing the ball even after makes to give Blaine opportunities at quick baskets. Payne probed the defense with his dribble drive, and was really the main set-up man for Blaine’s perimeter attack.
Zack Schuster is a six-foot-six-inch tight-end in football that plugs up the middle for the Bengals basketball team. Versus Rogers he scored 11 points, all five field goals coming inside. The 2023 Senior gave Blaine balance as others bombed three’s, Schuster controlled the inside with his size and strength.
