The Oak Creek High School boys basketball team tried a patient approach against Park Friday night.

The Panthers were more than willing to be patient themselves.

Handling Oak Creek's slow, methodical approach, Park rolled to a 62-32 Southeast Conference victory at Oak Creek. It was the sixth straight victory for Park (9-1, 5-1 SEC), which is ranked 10th among Division 1 schools in the first Associated Press state poll of the season.

"They were real patient on offense," Park coach Jim Betker said of Oak Creek. "We had to play long stretches of defense at a time and our kids stuck with it."

Zyiere Carey led Park with 13 points and five steals. Nobal Days had 10 points, 10 rebounds and six assists. And Rance Kendrick had 10 points and six assists.

Oak Creek is 1-9 overall and 0-6 in the SEC.

KENOSHA BRADFORD 85, CASE 69: The Eagles tandem of JaKobe Thompson and Logan Schmidtmann combined for 39 points in a tough matchup against the Southeast Conference-leading Red Devils at Case.

Bradford’s De’Monte Nelson led all scorers with 36, but Zach Borden proved to be the biggest thorn in the Eagles’ side. He made five 3-pointers, halting multiple second-half runs by Case.

“Every time we’d get it to four points, he’d hit a ‘3’,” coach Jacob Berce said.

Schmidtmann (19 points) made five 3-pointers of his own, while Thompson led the Eagles (5-7, 3-3 SEC) with 20. Berce credited Nick Fugiasco and Sentreal Gilliam (team-high eight rebounds) for their defense.
