The Tri-State Tankers with new head coach Mike Gibson at the helm, turned in an impressive performance in their debut last Saturday against the Centralia Pride. After a slow start in the first quarter, the Tankers came back strong to down the Pride by 39 points, 123-84. After trailing by as many as 10, the Tankers cut the deficit to one by the end of the first quarter, and pulled ahead to lead by 10 at half time. During the second period, a three pointer by Jason Gansman of Boonville gave the Tankers their first lead. This proved to be the turning point of the game. The team was paced in scoring during the first half by Dedrick Finn of Newburgh with 10 points. Wes Caudill of Union County, Ky., and Brandon Carr of Baltimore, Md., each had 8 points, while Gansman added 7. The Tri-State's semi pro team came out strong in the second half, pulling away to an 86-60 lead at the end of the third quarter.
Turning in an inspired performance, Melvin Hall of Evansville led the way with 19 points in the second half. Derek Soaper of Henderson, Ky., added 13, Finn had 11, and Tyler George of Princeton contributed 8. The game ending score of 123-84 put the Tankers at 1-0, making it a strong start for their inaugural season.
'The key to our success tonight was team play and hustle,' said Coach Mike Gibson. 'Even though we had individuals step up to lead in different areas, no one person was more important than the total team effort. I look forward to a fun season and encourage all basketball fans to come out and watch some top notch basketball played by some high quality players.'
