Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t.

Mike Hensel and Bryce Kothe each added 10 points, and Andrew Lartey scored nine for the Panthers (2-0 SLC).
WILMOT — First-year Wilmot boys basketball coach Jake Erbentraut is no stranger to success on the hardwood.

Mike Stevenson scored seven of his 20 points in the first quarter. ... Tony Thomas led Indian Trail (1-4), playing its first varsity game against a Kenosha County foe, with 20 points.
