BELCOURT - Aanen Moody picked up right where he left off.

The Dickinson High senior guard, after leading Class A boys in scoring last season at 33 points per game, poured in 44 points in the Midgets’ season-opener on Friday, a 105-72 win over Turtle Mountain.

Moody added seven rebounds, five assists and five steals to his line. Joining him in double-figures in scoring were seniors Jordan Meidinger (13 points, 10 rebounds, four blocks), Chase Ballard (10 points) and Tanner Ouellette (11 points).

Shawn Steffan and Kaiden Steckler scored nine and seven points off the bench, respectively.

“I think it was a great team win. Everybody got to contribute,” said head coach Dan Glasser. “With all the (weather) cancelations, these guys were chewing at the bit to get out of the gate, and they were finally released. We got a lot to work on, but we did a lot of good things too.”
