Turns out the only thing slowing down Lingleville's boys recently is the weather.
The Cardinals weren't able to finish their home tournament last weekend, and had to postpone Tuesday's home game against Ranger. But when they finally hit the hardwood on Wednesday, it was back to business as usual.
And for the Cards, business as usual means scoring points in droves.
Robert VanKranenburg and Ruperto Huerta combined for 48 points and four players reached double figures as the Cards thumped the Bulldogs 91-48.
Robert VanKranenburg scored 27, Ruperto Huerta 21, Bart VanKranenburg 11 and Hendrick Huisman 10 to pace the blitzkreig offensive effort, but head coach Kade Eckert says the defense could have been better.
"We were definitely not sharp. Defensively we were a step slow, a tick off, whatever you want to call it," Eckert said. "I guess when you haven't had a full practice in seven days or even touched a basketball in five days that is to be expected. But we put up 91 points, so we did something right."
Jayden Stoker scored six, Alex Huerta four, Tucker Click four, Colby Stoker three and Colton Carter two.
The Cards turned around the next afternoon and opened play in Morgan's tournament Thursday.
Iredell entered the contest unbeaten and seeking revenge after the Cardinals eliminated them in the opening round of last season's Class A Division II playoffs.
Lingleville would have none of it however, riding Robert VanKranenburg's 32 points - including 21 after halftime - to a 60-44 victory. Jayden Stoker scored nine, Colby Stoker six, Ruperto Huera five, Tim Griffin four, Bart VanKranenburg three and Huisman one.
The tournament continues through Saturday.
