The Beaver Dusters evened up their season record at 3-3 with a 53-44 win over the Stanton County Trojans in the first round of the Rolla Showcase Invitational Tournament, Thursday night.

The Dusters built an early 11-7 lead by getting the ball inside to Kalen Gabel, who scored six of his game-high 16 in the first quarter. Beaver added one more to their lead before half, leading 23-18 at the break.

Trenton Downing (15 points) hit his second and third threes of the game in the second half, and Beaver started the fourth leading by six at 35-29.

But Beaver again went inside to Gabel who scored eight in the quarter, and the Dusters made 5 of 8 free throws to hold off Stanton County for the win.
