Abiah Plastow's 21 points led Ethan past the Mitchell Christian boys 59-49 on Thursday in Mitchell.

MCS assistant head coach Alan Miller coached the Golden Eagles in place of Dennis Martin, who was out of town.

"We got off to a slow start and didn't shoot the ball well in the first quarter," Miller said. "Ethan is a solid basketball team. We played better in the second half, but just couldn't get over the hump."

Majok Kur led the Golden Eagles with 23 points, while Alec Nelson scored 10.

MCS was 20-of-50 from the floor and 7-of-11 from the free throw line. Ethan shot 22-of-50 from the floor and 11-of-18 from the free throw line. In addition to Plastow's 21 points, Rylee Riggs chipped in with 15 for Ethan.

"We need to be able to play four quarters," Miller said. "We just had a really sluggish first quarter."
