The 17th ranked Tecumseh round ballers went on the road and got a win before coming home last week to take a homecoming win on Friday.

The Savages went to North Rock Creek on Tuesday night and took control of the game early on the way to a 68-52 win over the Cougars. The Savages led 16-10 after the first quarter and led 34-22 at halftime.

A six-point advantage in the third quarter gave Tecumseh a comfortable 52-34 lead headed to the fourth quarter. The Cougars put up a fight in the final stanza and won the period by two, but the Savages held on for the 16-point win.

The Savages Jacob Green went off to lead everyone with a whopping 32-points in the win. Green was 6-of-9 from three-point range as he blasted away at the Cougars. Emet Longhorn also had a big night with 18-points as the pair combined for 50 of the Savages 68-points.

After the win on the road, the Savages came home to celebrate homecoming on Friday night and found a pesky Little Axe team. Tecumseh started fast and battled the Indians the rest of the night on the way to a 71-52 win.

Tecumseh won the opening period 14-4 and then held off the Indians by two in the explosive second quarter for a 33-21 lead at the half. The Savages gained a little breathing room in the third with a 19-12 edge to hold a formidable 52-33 lead going to the fourth. Little Axe gave it everything in the fourth quarter but could only managed a 19-19 tie in the stanza.

Green had another big night with 22-points, but he was matched by Kainan Ryan with 22 of his own in the win. Longhorn was in double digits with 12-points to give the top three Savages 56 of the 71 total points for Tecumseh. Alex Schovanec and Payden Clutter each tossed in six-points for the Savages.

After winning the week, the Savages pushed their record to 14-4 on the year and will take their game on the road the rest of the season. Tecumseh will go to Bethel on Friday night and then to Seminole on Tuesday for rematches with both teams, both very close games. The Savages beat the Wildcats by two at home and then beat the Chieftains by four in the Stroud Tournament.
