Mentor Boys Basketball Team Continues Dominance In Win Over South

Mentor coach, players not completely satisfied despite winning by 24 points

The only people not satisfied with the Mentor boys basketball team's 91-67 win over Willoughby South were the Mentor players and coaches.

"We need to get our chemistry down and get out in transition a little more," Caleb Potter told Ohio Varsity after scoring 22 points, 15 of which came in the first half.

Mentor Coach Bob Krizancic was also less than sold on his 4-0 team's performance.

"It hasn’t looked good for us the past two games, but we hope it will get better," Krizancic said.

Krizancic was referring to Friday's win and an 87-66 victory against Medina.

The Cardinals have won their first four games by a total margin of 126 points but Krizancic wants to see continued improvement.

"We are still trying to find roles and responsibilities for every one on this team," Krizancic said to Ohio Varsity.

In addition to Potter, Cardinals Michael Gallagher and Jeff Foreman also played well. Gallagher notched 19 points and grabbed seven rebounds. Foreman scored 15.

Harry Chakerelis led South with 25 points.

The Cardinals get no winter break. They play Euclid tonight and then will leave for the Arby's Classic in Tennessee on Christmas.

Meanwhile, the Lake Catholic basketball team also continued their winning ways Friday night.

Mark Baniewicz's 17 points and 11 rebounds, as well as Zavier Powers' 16 points, led the Cougars (5-1) to a 58-53 win against Benedictine.

Their next game is Dec. 28 against Cleveland Central Catholic.
