TURPIN, Okla.—The Beaver Dusters came out on fire Tuesday night, crushing their Beaver County Bedlam rival Turpin, 64-28.

After the Cardinals scored the opening basket of the game, Beaver reeled off 14 straight, and never looked back.

“Happy that we came out with a lot of hustle,” Dusters coach Craig Schlessman said. “Our guys came out with fire and hustle, and I was very happy about how they approached this game.”

Garrett Weber was in the zone, scoring 24 points in the first half as Beaver built a 35-13 lead. Gunhar Martin and Jorge Rivera each added 10.

Weber finished the game 11 of 14 from the field, 4 of 4 at the line for 26 points.

“Garrett is a well-rounded player,” Schlessman said. He’s tough to stop inside and out. He scored but also distributed the ball well tonight.”

As a team, Beaver was 25 of48 from the field and a perfect 11 of 11 from the charity stripe.

Meanwhile Turpin struggled, making just 10 of 46 field goals, and 8 of 16 free throws.

Beaver added to their lead in the second half, and led by 32 after three quarters (52-20).

“They beat us in every aspect of the game,” Turpin coach Gary Wallace said.

Turpin’s top scorer was Kyler Musgrave with nine.

Beaver will face off against Fort Supply Thursday in the first round of the Buffalo Invitational.

Turpin will take on Hooker Thursday in the first round of the Texhoma Tournament.
