Tonight the ADM Tiger boys basketball team steps back onto the hardwood as they look to secure their third straight victory taking on conference opponent Carlisle.
The Tigers come fresh off of two big turning points this past weekend with two tough wins on the road, the first two of the 2016-2017 season for ADM comprised of a critical conference win Friday in Bondurant and a Saturday victory in Gilbert. Both games fell in the favor of the Tigers by 11 point victories.
Tonight ADM finds themselves in the much desired comforts of home, a place where the Tigers have flourished this season winners of three straight home games. Their match up against the Carlisle Wildcats tonight aims to be quite the scoring affair after last year both teams combined to average no less than 79 points per game against each other; ADM took both both games but they had to do so by eclipsing 80 points in both match ups. The Wildcats were the only team besides Pella last year put post up an 80 point game against the Tiger defense.
This season, the Tigers bring back their top three scorers in Tajen Ross, Payton Conrad, and Matt Larsen, averaging a combined 46 points per game on the year while the Wildcats will answer with three of their top returning scorers in Collin Lister, Max Evans, and Max Goodhue who have a combined 38 points per game.
The boys contest will be game two of the girl/boy conference double header tonight from the ADM gym beginning at 7:30 pm.
