An early lead and sustained scoring helped coach Brian Gardiner’s Shelton High boys basketball team to pull off an exciting 67-57 victory over the Masuk Panthers during Masuk’s Holiday Tournament on Dec. 30.
“We haven’t beaten Masuk in this tournament in years, so this is a big win for us,” Gardiner said. “We’d been scoring in the low 50s in recent years. One of our goals was to increase that, which we did tonight. We want to hold our opponents to 50 points or less, which we didn’t tonight, but our offense came through for us.”
