Sabes Invitational - Saturday Afternoon

Pool play at the Sabes Invitational finished up this afternoon with favorites Howard Pulley, KC Pump-N-Run, the St. Louis Eagles and the Illinois Warriors finishing undefeated. This afternoon Royce White put on a great offensive performance as the Panthers defeated East Troy 76-46 and now its on to tournament play.

The South Dakota Heat woke up early and defeated the Chicago Demons behind Louie Krogman's 27 points as he again had five three-pointers. Teammate Cody Schilling penetrated and kicked to Louie for several of those shots and Cody again showed why he is known as a "second half player" stepping up to hit jumpers and free throws for a total of 16 points. The Heat beat the Demons 67-58.

In the Heat's second game of the day, Schilling and Krogman quickly got out on a scoring blitz to give the Heat a 35-18 lead. Struggling last night to finish at the bucket, Cody scored six driving lay-ups on the Howard Pulley White squad and then helped Krogman get some looks and with the White squad not getting all the way up on Krogman, Louie sunk two threes quick. Hitting from the inside and out, the Heat picked apart the White team early and Krogman had room to drive and finish. At 6-foot-1, Louie is the full offensive scoring package and when play resumes next winter, Krogman will be making a run at the South Dakota state scoring records. The White team would make a late run but the Heat held on to win 64-60 and the Schilling/Krogman combination scored 45.
