Prep Basketball: NLS hits stride, downs Benson

NEW LONDON — New London-Spicer started slow but hit its stride midway through the first half to run away with a 74-35 victory over former West Central Conference rivals Benson.

The Braves led in the very early going but the Wildcats were able to overpower their visitors in the paint. NLS out-rebounded Benson 42-21 in a masterclass of rebound positioning.

Brandon Adelman shined Thursday night with a game-high 16 points and 10 rebounds. He also finished with four assists and two steals. It was an eventful night for all of the Wildcats, though, as 13 different NLS players logged points. Tristan Thompson was the only other player to reach double digits. He scored 11 points with three 3-pointers.
