DECATUR -- Led by Isaiah Bond's game-high 28 points, St. Teresa beat Maroa-Forsyth 70-43 in first game of the St. Teresa Team Soy Holiday Tournament Thursday. 

Along with his high scoring night, Bond topped the 1,000 career point milestone in the first quarter on a 3-pointer. 

"Isaiah has been a great worker for us and he is having a great year," St. Teresa coach Tom Noonan said. "I thought he played a well-rounded game tonight offensively and defensively. We continue to see improvements from him."

St. Teresa's offense was potent, jumping out to a 41-16 advantage at the half and never let the Trojans get close in the second. 

"I'm really pleased with how our guys played. The energy was really good today," Noonan said. "We played one of our best halves of a basketball game tonight."

Noonan also highlighted the play of Cayden Brilley who scored 18 points for the Bulldogs. 

"(Maroa) wanted to play zone on us early in the game but (Cayden) hit five 3-pointers in the first half. He is shooting the ball really well for us," he said. "I'm happy to see him knock down shots early and make a difference early."

The Trojans were led by Daanish Mahmood's 12 points. Cody Marsh added 11. 

LSA 58, Sullivan 44

DECATUR -- A big third quarter by Grant Karsten pushed the Lions past Sullivan in the St. Teresa Team Soy Holiday Tournament. 

Sullivan was hanging around LSA at the half 25-16 until Karsten scored 14 of the Lions' 23 third quarter points to push the game out of reach for the Redskins. 

"I thought we played well defensively and in spurts offensively," LSA coach Tom Saunches said. "Grant had a nice night for us and I thought Cam Walls did a good job getting some shots for us."

Karsten scored a game high 24 points and Walls added nine. 

Josh Stutzman scored a team-high 22 points for Sullivan.
