Rochelle shows up Veribest, 63-54

Operating with almost an entirely new basketball team, the Rochelle Varsity Hornets bounced back into action Tuesday night and put Veribest in their place, 63-54. Jamie Williams led the varsity Hornets with 19 points followed by Alex Vargas and Patrick Roberts each with 13, Eddie Teague with 11 and Derek Evans with seven. “I was real pleased that we scored 63 points the first game with only one starter coming back from last year’s team,” said Rochelle coach Tommy Meredith. “The scoring was well balanced and the transition from football to basketball was very smooth. Leading rebounders were Williams with 14 points, Vargas with 12 and Evans with 10.” Score by quarters: Rochelle 9 24 14 16’63 Veribest 5 10 23 16’54
