DRYDEN — Dryden made sure that George Gleason would win his debut as their head coach, rolling to a convincing 67-43 victory over Caseville in a meeting of North Central Thumb League varsity boys' basketball rivals last Friday night.

With the outcome, Dryden moves to 1-0 overall and against NCTL counterparts.

In Friday's matchup, Dryden grabbed a 21-17 edge after one quarter was complete.

The next eight-minute stretch saw Dryden collect 17 points, while holding Caseville to three.

That made it 38-20, Dryden, at the halftime break.

When the action resumed, Dryden padded its cushion some.

Aided by an 11-7 third quarter edge, Dryden took a 49-27 lead at the 24-minute mark.

Dryden then outscored Caseville 18-16 the rest of the way, good enough for a 67-43 victory when the final second ticked off the clock.

Austin Dunnigan led Dryden with 16 points, including two field goals of the three-point variety. Cody Paupert (12 points), Evan Hazen (11) and Geno Volante (10) hit for double figures as well.

Dustin Ostrander paced Caseville with 10 points.
