When you get the halftime break, sometimes things change 180 degrees. They did Wednesday night.

The Trojans broke open a 28-24 halftime advantage and cruised to a 75-47 non-conference victory over Hammond Morton.

“The first half, for whatever reason, we just weren’t moving as well and weren’t locked in on defense,” Chesterton coach Marc Urban said. “In the second half, we started moving the ball and defensively, we were much better at being in alert to where the basketball was.”

Both teams hit on 9-of-24 shots from the floor in the first half. In the second half, Morton hit only 7-of-21 (33 percent) and the Trojans were 18-of-28 (64 percent), including 7-of-10 from 3-point range.

“We just moved the basketball,” Urban said. “We finally were able to swing it side to side and get some rhythm 3’s. We got the ball inside. We have to play that way.”

The Trojans took control in the third quarter with a 17-4 run and never looked back as they outscored the Governors 27-10 in the period.

“We’ll take 3-0, but we know we have to clean some things up,” Urban said.

Austin Peterson (11 rebounds) and Jake Wadding led the Trojans with 16 points each, while Ray Yagelski scored 13 points. CHS had 11 players score.

“We got a lot of kids minutes tonight,” Urban said. “We have to develop a bench and find some guys that can play minutes for us. All the guys that went in and played tonight played good minutes. We have to have that.”

Rounding out the scoring for the Trojans were Erik Ralph (6 points), Kolton Cardenas (6 points), Noah Mahoney (5 points), Ky Palombizio (3 points), Harley Lohmeyer (3 points), Jack Eaton (3 points), Tony Gilyan (2 points) and Brayden Cartwright (2 points).

Off to their best start (3-0) since the 2014-2015 Trojans went 5-0, Chesterton returns to the court on Saturday when they host Lowell. The JV game is set for a 5:30 p.m. tip.

“Lowell is going to be a good test,” Urban said. “They have a lot of offensive fire power and we’ll have to be ready to go.”
