Pirates: Boys go 1-1 in NSC play

Baierl led Port with 22 points. Sixth man Marcus Schmit added 11.
“He hit a big three late in the game. He has been doing nice job off the bench,” Hebein said.
Evan Lilly scored nine.
Port’s team defense was solid and the Pirates rebounded well, Hebein said.
Port Washington 56, Whitefish Bay 41
The Pirates overcame a slow start at home on Friday to even their North Shore Conference record at 1-1.
Port held on to a 21-20 lead at halftime.
“We played good defense in the first half, we just didn’t knock down shots we usually knock down,” Hebein said.
Port pulled away with a 35-21 edge in the second half to top the Blue Dukes.
“We opened it up a little bit, got to the line, made a lot of free throws,” Hebein said.
Port went 20-for-31 from the line for the game, to Whitefish Bay’s 3-for-7.
Baierl and Lilly each scored 14 to lead the way.
“Adam and Evan both had really nice games,” Hebein said.
Lippe again served as defensive specialist, handling Bay’s 6-foot, 6-inch Joe Voit, depsite giving up four inches.
“He did a really nice job against him. He took charges, controlled the big guy and did the dirty work getting rebounds and everything,” Hebein said.
Homestead 76, Port Washington 63
The NSC hosts had five players score in double figures and down the Pirates on Nov. 28.
Lilly scored 14 and Uselding 13 to lead Port.
Homestead held a 38-31 advantage at halftime and scored another 38 in the second half.
“Every time we made a run to get back at them, they answered,” Hebein said.
“We weren’t as stout on defense as I thought we were capable of being. We were a little late reacting to some of the rotations which caused us to give up a few points.”
Port split its first two games of the year, beating Sheboygan South on the road, 62-49, on Nov. 24 and losing to New Holstein, 73-43, at home on Nov. 25.
Port jumped out to a 6-0 lead against South, a Division 1 team, and then went on an 8-0 run. Baierl scored 18, Uselding 11 and Lilly 10.
New Holstein shot nearly 73% on three-pointers to blow out the Pirates. Nolan Mueller scored 15 to lead Port.
The Pirates (3-2 overall) next play at Nicolet (1-1 NSC) this Friday and host Cedarburg (2-0) on Tuesday, Dec. 12.
