Edinburgh rattles inexperienced Southwestern squad in season opener

EDINBURGH – Committing more turnovers than shots attempted is not a recipe for success.

Southwestern shot 56% from the field in its season opener but took just 25 shots which allowed Edinburgh to run away with a 73-37 victory Tuesday.

Caleb Dewey led the Lancers with 28 points, three rebounds, four assists and three steals.

Connor Ramey finished with 13 points, six rebounds and three steals. Jarrett Turner added 10 points and three assists.

Wearing dark red uniforms emblazoned with “Maroons” across the chest as a throwback to when Edinburgh went by that moniker before switching to the Lancers in 1955, the hosts scored 27 first-quarter points and forced the inexperienced Spartans into 10 turnovers.

“One of the things we’ve talked about is trying to handle pressure and being able to slow it back down and run some offense,” said first-year Southwestern head coach Chris Ingels. “We never got into running any kind of offense. Edinburgh was so fast and athletic, a lot of credit to them.”

A 21-point second quarter gave the Lancers a 48-21 lead at halftime.

Southwestern had 16 first-half turnovers and just 12 shot attempts.

Matthew Clements led Southwestern with 13 points, 10 coming in the second half as he became more aggressive getting to the basket.

“Matt wants that (role) but he has never really done that before, he’s never been in that role,” said Ingels of Clements adjusting to be one of his team’s top scoring options. “It’s a little bit of a change.

“We talked in the lockerroom, there is no reason to be mad or upset. It’s going to be a long season. We will be better Saturday. We will be better each and every game.”

Connor Jewell finished with 10 points and six rebounds in the loss.

Edinburgh won the junior varsity contest, 57-23.

Freshman Avery Dennison hit three three-pointers to finish with a team-high 15 points for Southwestern.

The Spartans are back in action Saturday at Morristown.
