It had everything going for it.

First-place team in the Mid-State Activities Conference hosting the second-place team which just happened to win a share of the regular-season title last season.

Great scorers on both sides.

A raucous atmosphere.

On Wednesday night the Breckenridge Huskies hosted the Carson City boys basketball team in a much-anticipated battle for MSAC surpremacy, but in the end it turned out to be a one-sided affair as foul problems plagued the hosts while the best player on the floor took over in the second half to lift the Eagles (10-5) to an easy 51-33 over the Huskies (12-2).

With the win Carson City and Breckenridge are now tied for the conference lead with three games to play albeit the Eagles swept the season series.

"Coming out of halftime into the third quarter we had a lot of energy and that was our mood in the locker room," said Carson City coach Cory Schneider whose team beat second-ranked Pewamo-Westphalia in overtime 42-37 last week. "Breckenridge is a good team with only one loss so we knew we had to get after it right away."

The Eagles did exactly that as they reeled off 10-0 run in the first six minutes of the third quarter to turn an 18-16 halftime deficit into a 26-18 lead. The Huskies, who had to sit 6-foot-5 center Jack Staley and 6-foot-2 Carter Staley because of foul trouble most of the game, never recovered as the Eagles outscored them 35-15 in the second half.

"The Staleys are very good inside and not having them on the floor was big," said Schneider. "For us to take away their inside game really helped us out and we were also fortunate that they didn't hit too many outside shots."

Without an inside presence the Huskies slowed it down and played slow tempo in hopes of keeping it close so that they could bring the Staleys back later and make a game of it.

Initially it worked too as back-to-back triples from Gavin Ostrander and Caleb Hurt gave the hosts a 13-8 lead at the end of one. Carson City clawed back within two at 18-16 by the half before Kaleb Barrett took the game over in the second half.

"Kaleb had a great game," said Schneider of his senior who finished with 25 points of which most came in the second half. "His shots weren't going down in the first half but the stats say it will even out and it did in the second half."

While Barrett led the way with 25 sophomore Drew Stout chipped in nine points and Garrett Gage eight.

Jack Staley paced the Huskies with 10 while Ostrander had nine.
