The Park High School boys basketball team got the night off Friday because of snow and was fresh for its game Saturday at the John Chekouras Classic.

The Panthers played with a lot of energy, coach Jim Betker said, and made their 12-point first-half lead hold up in a 65-53 victory over Muskego at Mequon Homestead.

After losing to Kenosha Bradford Tuesday, Park (14-3) was supposed to play Case, but the game was postponed until Wednesday.

That could explain the extra bounce the Panthers had in their step.

“I like how the team responded from Tuesday,” Betker said. “It was a totally different team.

“We moved the ball well and we had a lot of unselfish play. Our defensive rotation was great and when we play at a high level, we’re a fun team to watch.”

Park, after trailing by four points early, led 33-21 at halftime.

Larry Canady had 18 points, Rance Kendrick had 12 points and eight assists and Zyiere Carey added 10 points. Nobal Days had 12 rebounds and seven assists to go with his three points.

Wes Kwapick led the Warriors (8-11) with 16 points.

ST. CATHERINE’S 86, SHORELAND LUTHERAN 47: The Angels worked the ball effectively inside against the Pacers’ 2-3 zone and Quinn Cafferty took advantage, scoring a season-high 29 points in a Metro Classic Conference victory at Somers.

Cafferty, who entered the game averaging 13 points per game, finished well inside, St. Catherine’s coach Nick Bennett said, and the Angels guards “made his life easy” by getting him the ball.

“The guys did a great job sharing the ball and playing it into the paint,” Bennett said. “The middle guys made good decisions.”

Cafferty went 14 of 15 from the field after missing his first shot, Bennett said, and he also had seven rebounds for the Angels (14-4, 10-3 MCC).

Jermaine Tomlin, a 6-foot-4 sophomore who began the season on junior varsity, scored 15 points and played his best game of the season, Bennett said. Azarien Stephens had 13 points and 10 assists, and Tyrese Hunter had 12 points.

Cooper Koker and Noah Garcia each had 10 points to lead Shoreland (5-13, 2-11).
