Hitting on 7 of 13 3-point shots and shooting 52 percent from the field overall, the Trojans defeated host Hutchinson by eight to improve to 3-4 on the season.

Tyler Linder scored 17 points, Karasharo Ojulu had 13, Logan Huisman 12 and Gavin Calmus 10 as the visitors worked out to a 31-22 halftime lead and held the Tigers at bay.

“We shot the ball much better, I think tonight,” said Trojans head coach Clint Meyer, whose team scored just 39 points Thursday in a 57-39 loss to Pipestone Area.

Linder was 7-for-8 from the field and Ojulu was 5-for-5.

Worthington came out in the first half and pressed Hutchinson, but the Tigers were able to play a patient half-court game to stay close. The Trojans erupted early in the second half and took a 17-point lead at one point. Hutchinson pulled to within seven by applying pressure and speeding up the game, but the Trojans maintained control.

Levi Broersma led Hutchinson with 20 points.
