FLANDREAU – Sioux Valley defeated the Fliers 70-54 in a Big East Conference/Lake Central Conference boys’ basketball game Thursday night.
Max Nielson led a balanced Cossack attack with 16 points. Kelton Vincent added 15 points, while Oliver Vincent and Ryan Schuster contributed 11 apiece.
Flandreau’s Tash Lunday post a double-double with a game-high 20 points and 11 rebounds.
Connor LeBrun scored 19 points. Nate Kneebone totaled 15 points, 10 boards, five assists and three steals.
“You only need to look at one stat to see how this game went for the Fliers – 25 turnovers will make it hard to win games, especially against a good team,” said Flandreau coach Brendan Sheppard. “We have been playing well in many phases, but these empty possessions have been killing us.”
Flandreau (7-6, 2-2/2-2) is host to De Smet on Tuesday.
