FLINT — Zac Chichester and Dow High could hardly miss from 3-point range Tuesday as the Chargers beat Flint Northwestern 56-50 in nonleague boys’ basketball.
Chichester scored 20 points, including six 3-pointers, and the Chargers shot 10 of 14 from 3-point range as a team.
“We just had good quality shots,” said Dow coach Mark Dickerson. “We worked the ball (around) and we were able to penetrate and (pass the ball out to the 3-point shooters).”
Dow trailed 27-26 at halftime, but outscored the Wildcats 19-11 in the third quarter to go up 45-38.
“The biggest thing I was pleased with was (that) we finally played four quarters of basketball,” Dickerson said. “We made good decisions down the stretch and we were able to close out the game.”
Mike Robb had nine points and 11 rebounds for the Chargers, while Trevor Davis had nine points and seven assists, Ben Zeitler scored nine points, all on 3-pointers, and Caleb Broodo had 10 rebounds.
“I was thrilled with our rebounding effort,” Dickerson said. “Most of (Northwestern’s) first-half points came on second-chance shots, probably 18 or 20 of their 27. But in the second half, we really tightened down on that, keeping them from getting to the rim (and) keeping them away from the ball.”
Darious Young scored 18 points to lead Northwestern.
The Chargers (3-15) host Bay City Central on Thursday.
Northwestern won the junior varsity game 56-53. Alex Doty scored 12 points for Dow, while Isaac Moolenaar scored 10. The Wildcats also won the freshman game.
