Warsaw boys struggling

The Warsaw boys basketball was hurt by a lack of competitive spirit and a poor second quarter Friday in a 77-63 loss to Bishop Luers.

The Tigers (10-9), who have lost five of seven, scored 18 points in the first quarter, three in the second, 22 in the third and 20 in the fourth.

"I am at my wit's end on the way we didn't compete tonight, mentally and physically," Warsaw coach Doug Ogle said. "I had hopes we would compete harder than what we did. When it starts to roll bad, we just don't have enough leadership and poise."

Jared Bloom scored 23 points for Warsaw, 10 in the first, zero in the second, seven in the third and six in the fourth.

Ogle admitted Bloom was battling an injured ankle and Jordan Stookey and Taylor Cone are both ill.

"Our team is not healthy, and maybe that caught up with us a little bit," Ogle said. "We didn't come in here at full strength, but I told the guys we aren't going to use that as an excuse."
