Basketball: Ollman scores 30 in Mariner win

Silver Bay sophomore Mason Ollman scored 30 points in an 83-42 victory over Ogilvie in the second of two games at the Ogilvie Invitational on Friday, Dec. 29.

Ollman shot better than 68 percent from the field and had eight steals on the defensive end. As a team, the Mariners shot nearly 53 percent and every Silver Bay player scored at least once in the romp.

In addition to Ollman, Weston Monson had 14 points and James Nopola had 11. Other scorers for the Mariners included Jason Blood with nine points, Riley Tiboni with six, Jared DeHart with five, Zach Blood and Coby Olson with three each and Manor Ollman with two points.

The day before against Onamia, the scoring was a little more evenly spread, with Jason Blood scoring 18, Mason Ollman with 17 and Monson scoring 16, but the result was another blowout. The Mariners topped Onamia 74-42 and shot just over 49 percent from the field.

Other scorers against Onamia included Zach Blood with nine points, Riley Tiboni with eight, Olson with four and Nopola with two points.

On Tuesday, Jan. 2, the Mariners fell to Foodwood 54-47, but Silver Bay was hamstrung with just six players available and at least one still feeling the effects of an illness over the weekend.

Weston Monson scored 23 points and shot nearly 53 percent from the field, but the rest of the team was just 9-of-32 for the game.

Mason Ollman had one of his worst games of the season with just eight points and was clearly not playing like himself. Jason Blood was one of several players forced to sit out against the Polar Bears, and with the Mariners two best shot creators out or limited, the offense struggled and put up just 19 points in the first half.

Other scorers for Silver Bay included Riley Tiboni with eight points and DeHart and Nopola with four points each.

Silver Bay (6-3) was scheduled to play Ely on Thursday, Jan. 4. Results weren't available by press time.

The Mariners will next play Cromwell-Wright at 6:30 p.m. Friday, Jan. 5.
