Inside game sets Pace for Wilmington
Wilmington (53) Vs. Union (45)
The Union High boys basketball team struggled in the second quarter and Wilmington took advantage.

The Greyhounds outscored the Scotties 17-5 in the second stanza en route to a 53-45 nonsection victory last night.

Wilmington’s second-quarter spurt provided the hosts with a 29-15 halftime advantage.

“We just get ourselves in offensive lapses at times,” Scotties coach Dave Smialowski said. “There’s six or eight minutes that we struggle to put the ball in the hoop. We always have that one quarter that we have lapses and tonight it was the second.”

Daryl Pace registered 14 of his game-high 25 points in the first half for Wilmington (2-2). Pace also snared a game-best 22 rebounds. The 25 points also represent a career high for Pace.

“We looked to get the ball inside to him early and often,” Greyhounds coach Mike Jeckavitch said. “He knew what to do with it when we did; he’s our No. 1 option offensively.”

“Daryl set the tempo on defense with his rebounding, too.”

Anthony Derrick was next with 12 points for the winners.

Markel Peace netted a season-high 16 points to lead the Scotties (0-5).

“Markel played pretty well,” Smialowski said. “He got some open looks and knocked them down.

“Our problem right now is we’re having trouble getting consistency and part of that is our youthfulness.”
