ALPENA, MI - The Alpena Boys Basketball team relied on tough defense to cruise past Cadillac, 53-37, on Friday night at the Gillespie Gymnasium. Both teams started off slow on offense as the first basket of the game was not scored until the halfway mark of the 1st Quarter. The Wildcats then caught fire as Bruz Copping, Aidan Goike, and Kayden Wisniewski buried three-pointers for an 11-4 1st Quarter lead. Alpena continued to play stifling defense as Cadillac could only manage 9 first-half points and turned the ball over on multiple occasions as the Wildcats took a 25-9 halftime lead. Alpena led by as many as twenty points in the 2nd Half as Chris DeRocher paced the Wildcats with 22 points. Copping finished with 13 points and Aidan Goike added five points. The Wildcats (6-1, 2-1 BNC) are off until January 4 when they host Escanaba.
