Frazee runs into a pair of tough teams
The Frazee boys' basketball team dropped two against a pair of top-flight teams last week.
The Hornets played well on the road, but lost 53-49 in Barnesville on Jan. 10 , as Daniel Janu fell into early foul trouble and was limited throughout the game.
Guard Zack Ziegler picked up the slack and had a game-high 22 points, including five threes.
Janu did contribute in his minutes with 10 points and 15 rebounds, as well as four blocks.
Cory Wokasch did a nice job on the boards with 12 and he also added seven points to the cause.
Matt Tangen chipped in six points with five assists.
"Our defense did a nice job confusing the Trojans and held them to just two made threes," said Frazee head coach Jason Reierson.
The Hornets also faced the Class 2A state-ranked Perham Friday, losing 71-33.
"We started out the game working well together and competing at a high level," Reierson said. "Defense was the key to a good start along with offensive execution.
"But they wore us down over the first half and finished like a top 10 ranked team should."
Janu led the Hornets with 17 points, eight rebounds, two assists and three blocks.
Nordquist played a nice all-around game, adding eight points, three rebounds and two assists.
Wokasch also played hard all game, but couldn't get in the scoring column, though he added six rebounds and two assists.
"They took away the things that we do well and shot the ball well," the Frazee coach said.
The Hornets (2-10) will host Hawley (6-3) Thursday for a 7:30 p.m. start.
