PRINSBURG — Central Minnesota Christian’s Case Mulder was the first player on his team announced to the crowd as part of starting introductions.

As Mulder made his way onto the floor, the public announcer mentioned that it was the sophomore guard’s birthday.

Mulder celebrated his special day in style with team-highs of 25 points, eight assists during the Bluejays’ 82-59 non-conference victory over Wabasso on Tuesday from CMCS High School.

The sophomore guard connected on 9 of his 16 attempts for the field, including 5-for-9 shooting from three-point land. Senior forward Austin TeBrake had 23 points, a Bluejays-best 14 rebounds and two blocks.

Nailing 34 of its 64 field goal attempts (53 percent), CMCS has now won its last nine contests after starting the season 4-3.

Early in the first half, sophomore Caleb Vander Beek scored in the paint while being fouled. Although the forward missed his free-throw attempt, the Bluejays notched the offensive rebound and pushed to a 12-4 lead following a TeBrake floater.

Following a timeout, the Rabbits (8-11) roared back to take a 15-14 advantage following a putback from senior center Cole Frericks. The two teams traded baskets before the hosts went ahead for good.

Surging past the visitors with a 12-0 run capped by a TeBrake layup in transition, the Bluejays (13-3) stretched to a 29-18 lead. That lead jumped up to 46-25 after Mulder knocked down a 3-pointer late in the first half.

The home team entered halftime up 48-27 and cruised the rest of the way.

Surpassing its win total from last season, CMCS visits Lac qui Parle Valley in a Camden Conference showdown at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday from Madison.
