INMAN— The Inman High School boys basketball team put on a dominating performance offensively as they dismantled Burrton High School, 82-29, on Friday night at home. The Teutons remain undefeated at the end of the first semester.

"I thought our help defense was really good, which would turn into steals and run outs," Inman's head coach Brett Froese said. "I thought we shot the ball very well too, and obviously we shot a lot of layups."

The Teutons started off hot right from tipoff when Mason Thiessen shot a 3-pointer. Inman went on a 9-0 run right after. The Teutons outscored the Chargers 19-5 to end the first quarter.

It was the next three quarters when the Teutons began their dramatic assault on the Chargers. Everyone in the rotation was involved, and each got their chance in putting more points on the board The Teutons outscored Burrton 13-2 in the first five minutes. Thiessen and Payton Froese scored in double-digits with the combined of 30 points. Froese had the hot hands in the final two-minute drive after shooting three 3-pointers to end the half. One included a 30-footer at the buzzer. It was 43-14 at halftime.

The "Payton Froese show" didn't end there. Froese shot three more shots from behind the arc. For an encore performance, he nailed a half-court shot at the buzzer to end the third quarter. The Chargers only had two points during the quarter.

"I don't think you could go into a game thinking that you were going to make that many shots," (Payton) Froese said. "I mean, when they're going in, they're going in. You feel good, so you have to keep shooting."

Coach Froese rested up his starters and subbed in his reserved players in the fourth quarter, but the energy level remained high. Jace Doerkson and Mason Carter gave Teutons another boost with eight points combined, coming off the bench. The Teutons' big three finished in double-figures. Froese with 30 points, Thiessen with 17 and Jaxson Eddy with 10. Jordan Friesen was one-point shy in double-digit points and had to settle for nine.

"I think the biggest thing for us was we came off a big schedule where you just played Kingsman then Berean at home, and it could've been a led up game for us," Coach Froese said. "I think our energy level was off the charts. We're flying all over the place, loose balls and I didn't think Burrton know what happened. Our energy level and how hard they played was well that they just love to play with each other so much and having fun.It's kind of ended up happening."

Inman will enjoy their Christmas break at 7-0 and will return on the court on Jan.8 when they take on Marion High School at 7:30 p.m.
