GLEN ULLIN - After its first Region 7 loss of the year at the hands of Beulah, the Dickinson Trinity boys basketball team needed to respond.
The Titans’ defense answered the call.
Trinity is now on a four-game winning streak after defeating Glen Ullin-Hebron 65-28 Friday night on the road.
“They understand the team aspect of defense,” Titans head coach Gregg Grinsteinner said. “In this region, you’re going to have to guard people. There are some scary offensive teams.”
Trinity totaled 24 steals in the game, led by Willy Jahner’s four, and forced the Bearcats into 24 turnovers.
“We’ve been getting a ton of touches on passes. That's something that we really preached,” Grinsteinner said. “You may not get the steal every time, but you want to get them out of their rhythm.”
Offensively, Shawn Stoltz led the charge with 15 points on 7 of 9 shooting to go along with 11 rebounds for a double-double. Lucas Jones was 3 of 5 from the 3-point line for 11 points, while Jahner recorded 10 points and six assists.
“Shawn Stoltz was just a beast tonight,” Grinsteinner said. “He just had his way on both ends of the court blocking shots and rebounding. … He was just challenging everything at the glass. Whenever Glen Ullin-Hebron was going up for shots, he was challenging it. He’s becoming a force.”
As a team, Trinity shot 52 percent from the field while limiting Glen Ullin-Hebron to 24 percent shooting.
Braden Wehri led the Bearcats with eight points.
The Titans (14-4, 8-1 Region 7) have three more region games after going to Watford City for a game today.
