Lake City got the statement win it was looking for Tuesday as the Tigers throttled seventh-ranked (2A) Byron 60-43 in Byron.
It was the seventh consecutive win for Lake City as the Tigers led from start to finish.
Lake City (20-3) made its first five shots of the game and established an 18-3 lead with 7 minutes, 57 seconds remaining in the first half despite turning the ball over six times in that stretch. The Bears started out 1 of 12 shooting and turned the ball over five times in the first 10:03 of the game. The Tigers led 34-19 at halftime.
Lake City shot better than 66 percent from the field including a 9-for-11 night from beyond the 3-point line. Ben Schramski led all scorers with 23 points and five 3-pointers for the Tigers and also grabbed six rebounds. Reid Lundell added 13 points and six rebounds in the win.
Buster Meyer led Byron (20-4) with 14 points as the Bears shot 16 of 49 from the field.
Lake City’s Coleman Sweeney reinjured his ankle during the Tigers’ victory.
