After a sluggish first half offensively, the Lowell Cardinals went on a big offensive spurt in the third quarter and they cruised to a 58-40 win over the visiting Wallenberg Bulldogs in a Academic Athletic Association (AAA) boys basketball game Tuesday night.

Neither team's offense was in gear early. Lowell was getting plenty of open shots and second chance opportunities but were missing. On the other hand, Wallenberg struggled with turnovers and could not get into any rhythm offensively. This resulted in a 9-9 tie after the first quarter. Wallenberg actually took a lead for a short while in the second quarter but could gain no separation. Some Wallenberg miscues in closing the second quarter gave Lowell it's biggest lead at 22-17 as the teams went into halftime.

In the third quarter, Lowell's offense came to life. Wallenberg's defense had been solid throughout the first half but Lowell got to the rim several times for layups to start the quarter. The layups forced Wallenberg to play more help defense and that led to open three pointers which started falling for Lowell. By the time the third quarter ended, Lowell had outscored Wallenberg 25-8 in the quarter to take a 45-25 lead. Wallenberg would not mount any threat thereafter.

With the win, Lowell improves to 6-3 in AAA play (14-8 overall). Lowell's next opponent will be the Washington Eagles on Friday February 7th, 2014 in the annual "Battle Of The Birds" game. The game will be played at Kezar Pavilion and start at 8 PM.

Wallenberg dropped to 4-4 in AAA play (6-13 overall). Wallenberg will play the Gailieo Lions on Thursday February 6th, 2014. The game will be held at Galileo at 5:30 PM.
