Basketball: Dreads shoot down Tecumseh in SEC opener

After opening up with a close loss to Brighton and then coming back late to trip up South Lyon, the Dexter boys’ basketball team needed a break. Enter Tecumseh.

The Dreadnaughts jumped out to an 18-8 first quarter lead and started the second half on a 9-0 run to blow out Tecumseh 70-42 in an SEC White Division opener for both schools on Tuesday night.

Dexter improved to 2-1 overall.

“We played a complete game,” said coach Tim Cain. “Our zone frustrated them early in the game and they tried to trap us and that opened things up for our shooters.”

Dexter led 40-22 at halftime and then started the third quarter with a 9-0 run to put the game away. The Dreadnaughts showed great balance on offense, knocking down 12 triples but also scoring 16 field goals.

Ten Dreadnaughts scored in the game led by Justin Eekhoff with 16, Grant Katcher with 14, Tony Seidl with 11, Brady Rosen with seven and Michael Bradshaw with six.

Dexter faces a tough test on Friday at state-ranked Ypsilanti.

“We are going to find out where we are at,” Cain said. “It’s a big game in our conference.”
