Whippets can't overcome early deficit

Minden's Nic Werner is guarded by Grand Island Central
Catholic's Elijah Hunter Thursday night in Minden.

MINDEN — The Minden boys basketball team went into Thursday night's game with a 3-1 record. Two of those wins came against Class B schools Lexington and Aurora.

But the record was quickly forgotten when Grand Island Central Catholic jumped out to a 17-2 lead in the first quarter.

"We got out-coached and we didn't have them ready to play. That's all on me," said Minden head coach Aaron Martin. "(GICC) came out hot, but a lot of that was a lack of intensity on our end. There were a lot of buckets that we could have stopped. And, we took some poor shots early, and that continued on through the game."
