COLO – Things were clicking for Colo-Nesco on offense against Waterloo Christian Jan. 28 in Colo and that was enough to get the Royals a decisive 74-55 victory over the Regents.

Colo-Nesco raced out to a 12-6 lead behind the hot shooting of Cole Ozbun. The Royals built a 13-point lead at the half and Waterloo Christian never got closer than 11 points the rest of the way in an impressive Royal rout.

“We’re playing well, especially offensively,” Colo-Nesco head coach Pat Wynja said. “We’re finding the open guy. Teams are finding it hard to guard us right now.”

The Royals shot an impressive 58 percent from the floor. Four different Colo-Nesco players scored in double figures and the Royals assisted on 20 of 31 field goals.

Ozbun was flawless, scoring a game-high 21 points for the Royals.

Attacking the Regent defense on drives, battling inside and converting several pull-up jumpers from midrange, Ozbun went a perfect 10 of 10 from the field. He also finished the game with five rebounds, one assist and one steal.

“In practice we’re always working on our moves and trying to stay aggressive,” Ozbun said. “Tonight I just was feeling the vibe and my shots happened to fall.”

Tanner Clatt added 16 points, two assists and two steals and Brady Stoeffler had 13 points, four assists and three rebounds. Christian Reischauer was also in double figures with 10 points and he added seven assists, six rebounds and two steals.

Garret Tiarks chipped in eight points off the bench and Grant Tiarks put up four points, 6 rebounds and four assists. Zach Jamison tacked on two points for Colo-Nesco.

Wynja did say his team needs to perform better defensively as it chases the ISC championship. Waterloo Christian hurt Colo-Nesco on the offensive glass, finishing with 13 offensive boards.

“We’re finding that we are defending a lot more possessions because we’re getting so many more on offense,” Wynja said. “Our defense isn’t terrible, but we can definitely improve.”

Timothy Doering totaled 15 points and five assists to lead Waterloo Christian. Levi Smith added 11 points and three steals, Matt Miller scored 10 points, Noah Goedken netted nine and Alan Mazzarella finished with six points and nine rebounds for the Regents.
