Yankton senior Matthew Mors broke his own school single-game record by scoring 48 points last night in the Bucks 76-60 victory at Spearfish. Mors tallied 29 points in the first half and his total of 48 ranks fifth all-time for a single game in Class Double-A boys basketball history. Spearfish pulled to within four points in the second half before the Bucks pulled away in the fourth quarter to win their season opener.
The Yankton Gazelles got a huge game from junior Ellie Karolevitz on Friday to defeat Spearfish 53-35. Karolevitz had 20 points, 16 rebounds and 6 assists in the Gazelles victory while junior Jordynn Salvatori added 10 points as Yankton evened its record to 1 and 1 overall.
