Demons outplay Magi in West region opener

BISMARCK - Bismarck High senior forward Taylor Schafer tallied a game-high 27 points and senior guard James Iron Eyes scored 20 as the Demons routed Minot 80-60 Thursday in the West Region opener for both teams.

Bismarck (1-0 overall, 1-0 region) led 39-29 at halftime and forced MHS (1-1, 0-1) into 17 turnovers.

"They were more physical, more aggressive, more assertive," MHS coach Dean Winczewski said. "They just got after us from the time the ball went up. They dictated how the game was played and we just sat back and didn't do our job, and it was across the board."

Junior Noah Bosh and senior Jordan Seideman had 13 and 12 points, respectively, to lead Minot.

Since that meeting, the Magicians, now 11-2 overall and 8-2 in West Region play, have won 10 of 11 games with the loss coming to now No. 1 Century.Bismarck (8-4, 6-3) has lost in the state to only Century and then-No. 1 St. Mary's. Schafer ranks second in the region in scoring with a 22.3-point average.

"Bismarck's a really good team," Winczewski said Monday. "They put one on us in December, and it wasn't as close as 20, in fact."

Minot sophomore forward Braydon Lund, who has started the past eight games, said cutting down on turnovers will be a focus for the Magicians. If they can do so, he likes their chances.

"They're definitely a challenge, but I believe we have a good chance to beat them if we play Magi basketball," Lund said."
