Subiaco will continue conference games traveling to Heber Springs on Friday and to Clarksville on Tuesday, Feb. 11. The Trojans will then finish the regular season at home against a tough and conference-leading Morrilton on Friday, Feb. 14, for Senior Night.
On Tuesday, Subi traveled to Ozark to take on the Hillbillies. The Trojans battled the Hillbillies for a half with neither team showing much offense. Despite not playing as well as they would have liked, Subi held a 19-17 lead at the half. For the second time this year against the Hillbillies, the Trojans collapsed in the second half as they threw pass after pass that was much more to the Hillbillies liking than their own. In the end, a very disappointed Trojan team left Ozark with a 41-35 loss.
On Friday, Subi hosted the Apaches from Pottsville. The earlier game against the Apaches was a real baptism for a young Trojan team that had not seen that kind of zone defense. The Apaches mercy-ruled Subiaco back in December in a game that the young Trojans would like to forget. The first period looked and felt like a possible repeat of the earlier game as Pottsville would, at times, lead by 13. The second period saw the Trojans find their footing and play Pottsville much more competitively to trail at the half 32-21. In the second half, the Trojans came alive to not only compete with the Apaches but take the lead with three minutes remaining in what was one of the better stretches of play this year. With a three-point lead and three minutes remaining, the Trojans missed free throws and had some costly turnovers. Despite the miscues, Subi inbounded the ball with six seconds remaining down one at 54-53. Another turnover allowed Pottsville to go to the line one more time to pull out 55-53 win over Subi.
Matthew Kremers lead Subi with 15 with Ivan Martijin, Jonathan Mercera and Conner King combining for 28.
