Flohr notches 27 points, seven treys in victory
FRUITA – Sean Flohr has had some spectacular nights in his first full year with the Glenwood boys varsity basketball team.
On Friday, the sophomore had one of his best.
Needing a win to stay alive in the Class 4A District 7 tournament, Flohr threw in 27 points, including seven 3-pointers, for a 62-49 Demon victory over Palisade to advance to Saturday’s fifth-place game.
Flohr started hot and got better as the game progressed.
The lithe forward scored 11 of Glenwood’s first-quarter points for a five-point lead, then came to the Demons’ rescue when their early advantage withered.
Tied at 21-all with 22 seconds left in the first half, Flohr’s deuce on guard Marco Salmen’s kickout pass allowed Glenwood to take a 23-21 lead at intermission.
The Demons held a 10-point advantage in the third quarter, lost it, then regained control on Flohr’s trey and Jeff Screen’s field goal in the last 16 seconds of the frame.
After falling back to a 38-all tie, Glenwood took the lead for good with 6:43 left on Andrew Blake’s basket.
Justin Unfred scored 23 points for Palisade. Timon Fish and Blake added 12 and 10 points, respectively for the Demons.
