The Beaver Dam High School boys basketball teams stayed perfect on the season with a 79-75 win over Oshkosh North on Tuesday afternoon at the BDHS Fieldhouse. Senior Nate Abel knocked down 10 three-pointers and scored a career high 41 points in the victory. The Michigan Tech recruit also became the 7th player in program history to surpass 1000 career points. It was a total team effort as Alex Soto chipped in 10, Ty Bunkoske finished with nine including a pair of big three-pointers late in the 2nd half. Brady Helbing knocked down some late free throws to also finish with nine. Evan Sharkey added eight points and had a huge block in the final minutes of the game. Freshman Jack Jens chipped in two points in his varsity debut. Beaver Dam was playing the game with a short bench because of contact tracing and played just six players in the game. Jalen Keago led North with 25.
Per Beaver Dam boys coach Tim Ladron, the 41 points on Tuesday by Nate Abel ties him for 2nd place all-time for points in a game. Nate ties Jeremy Ames and Jayme Bognar for 2nd place. The all-time record is held by Dick Imme who scored 45 (twice) in the 1966-67 season.”
The Golden Beavers (9-0) will host DeForest next Tuesday. You can watch that game on the DailyDodge.com VideoStream.
