Mishawaka did a number on Wawasee’s top two scorers Wednesday night in a 41-31 victory at The Cave.
The Cavemen held Trevon Coleman and Jacob Hand to just eight combined points on eight total shots. Wawasee did manage 19 three-point tries in the game, hitting seven, but took only six shots from two-point range.
Ryan Edington scored a career-high 14 points for the Warriors, making 4-6 threes to aid his total.
In a 10-point game, however, Mishawaka made up the difference by outscoring Wawasee 16-6 in points off turnovers, Wawasee coughing up the ball 10 times on the night.
John Binion led the Cavemen with 10 points and three rebounds while Dylan Hall and AJ Rosebush each finished with eight points, Rosebush chipping in six rebounds and Hall three assists and three steals.
Wawasee slipped to 5-15 overall and will continue its busy week with a fourth game in seven days when it visits 18-1 East Noble Saturday night.
