For the last two games the Wabash Apache basketball team has figured out balance is the key to success. Tuesday, behind 18 points from Tyler Brewer and a double double from Breyton Nealis, Wabash had ten players score in a 71-41 win over Lakeland Christian.
With a helter skelter defense and an up tempo offense Lakeland could hang with Wabash for just one quarter. The Apaches led just 13-11 after the first stop before their typical offensive explosion would erupt.
The Apaches would out score Lakeland 22-8 in the second and 24-13 in the third before things simmered down a little in the fourth, still out scoring Lakeland 12-9 in the fourth.
Wabash had 51 rebounds, with 25 coming on the offensive end, while getting 14 steals and 3 blocks. As fast as the pace was the Apaches committed just 9 turnovers.
