St Peters vs Lucas
2-8-2019 "Cubs Cave" Lucas Ohio
Lucas Beats St Peter’s For 1st League Crown Since 1991
It had been a while since Lucas Cubs basketball fans last tasted a conference championship before the 2019 version ended a 28-year drought with a Mid-Buckeye clinching 65-52 win over 4-time defending champ St. Peter’s.
The Cubs (12-5) are still perfect in MBC play with a spotless 9-0 mark, handling the Spartans (11-7, 7-2) by double-figures for the second time this year as sophomore guard Ethan Sauder scored 14 of his career-best 22 points in the second half to go along with 16 from Logan Niswander and 13 by Riley Gossom.
It’s the most points allowed by St. Peter’s this season, who got 22 points from senior guard Caleb Stewart but his Spartans trailed 18-6 after the first and 32-14 by halftime, falling into a 53-31 hole by the start of the fourth.
