The Glenwood boys basketball team suffered its first loss last Tuesday at Lewis Central with a final score of 75-59. The red hot Titans jumped out to an early lead in the first quarter and never looked back, keeping the Rams outside a 15-point margin through the final three quarters. After trailing 66-38 at the end of the third quarter, Glenwood made a late push to cut the defeicit nearly in half, but still could not muster enough late game magic to worry the Titans. Senior Christian Stanislav continued his early-season tear, dropping 26 points and grabbing 11 rebounds in the loss. Sophomore Ryan Blum had a solid night as well, putting up 14 points and eight rebounds. No other Rams found themselves in double figures.
Saturday night, Glenwood had a much-needed bounceback win on the road at St. Albert in a 61-43 blowout. After a competitive first quarter, the Rams began to pull away from the Falcons, taking a 33-20 lead into the half. The second half wasn't much different, as Glenwood continued to extend its lead, getting it to as many as 22. Blum led the Rams with 15, Stanislav followed with 14 while Zach Carr added 13 to round out a balanced scoring attack.
The Rams will travel to Atlantic Tuesday night followed by a home bout with Denison Friday.
