01/07/2016 - BOYS BASKETBALL: Warner's 27 Helps Waverly In Win Over Norris

By Jeff Motz

WAVERLY---Ben Warner found his shot falling through the basket quite often Thursday night.

The Waverly senior guard scored a game-high 27 points, on 3-of-3 shooting from three-point range and sank 11 free throws to help the Vikings to a 67-58 victory over Norris in boys basketball.

For Waverly, who improved to 4-5, the win avenged a loss to Norris on Dec. 30 in the championship of the Waverly Holiday Tournament, where the Titans came away with a 56-51 victory.

Norris led 22-21 after the first quarter behind Garrison Gustin's 11 points, including a three-pointer before the buzzer sounded.   Gustin wound up finishing with a team-high 21 points.

Waverly led 30-28 at the half and took off in the third quarter, behind three-pointers from Warner and Jake Schneider.  Warner's third and final three-pointer came right before the buzzer for a 46-34 Viking lead.

Defensively, Waverly went to a 2-3 zone, forcing Norris to try to attack from outside.  The Titans got to within seven in the fourth quarter at 57-50 off three-pointers from Gustin and Cole Graham, who finished with 16 points.

Thomas Sullivan added 12 points in the losing effort for Norris.
