Post Independent Staff
No one, at least in recent memory, had seen a performance like that of Sean Flohr against Palisade Saturday night.
The junior forward scored 40 points and netted 11 of his 14 field goals from beyond the arc to lead the Demons to a 89-64 win over the Bulldogs in Class 4A Western Slope League boys basketball action.
Flohr’s monumental night also made the state record books.
According to the Colorado High School Activities Association records, the 11 three-pointers Flohr hoisted up tied for second-best by a Colorado schoolboy in one game. Isaac Grillo of Maranatha Christian tallied 11 treys in 1995. The one-game record is 12 three-pointers by Matt Clark of Poudre, set in 2000.
Flohr was red-hot in the first half. He scored 16 points in the first quarter, had 25 by halftime to give the Demons (3-3 WSL, 6-7 overall) a 50-33 lead at the halftime intermission.
Palisade (2-4, 5-7), which scored 11 treys as a team, was good. But, the Demons, who had opened the game with 31 points by hitting 12-of-15 field goal attempts in the first quarter, were better.
In the remaining two quarters of play, Glenwood’s smallest lead was 16 points.
Sean Flohr’s younger brother, Michael also had a strong night. The freshman ended with 18 points. John Gabriel finished with 11.
Two Palisade starters ” Brian Austin and Michael Embrey ” scored 23 and 20 points, respectively.
Glenwood 65, Delta 54
DELTA ” Michael Flohr had 19 points and Sean Flohr added 18 to lead the Glenwood Springs boys basketball team to a 65-54 victory over Delta Friday night.
