BALDWIN CITY — Justin Vander Tuig exploded for 39 points to boost the Baldwin High boys’ basketball team to its first league of the season. The Bulldogs beat Spring Hill 77-67.

The BHS sophomore dominated the paint all night against a shorter Broncos’ team. He only made five of eight free throws in the contest. Zach Wright added 17 points to the win.

“It’s nice to get the win, because it helps out for our sub-state seeding,” Vander Tuig said. “It just feels good to get two wins this week. I wasn’t sure how many points I had until after the game. I was just playing.”

Baldwin — Schiller, 6; Beecher, 8; Growcock, 2; Tommer, 2; Kueffer, 2; Hoffman, 1; Wright, 17; Vander Tuig, 39.
