ROY -- When Hayden Schenck blew out his ACL in the first round of a state tournament game last February against Brighton, Weber's chance of advancing deep into the playoffs was torn apart.
Two games into the current campaign, the 6-foot-3 senior guard is playing even better than before the injury.
Following a 34-point explosion last Friday at Sky View in his first game back, Schenck ripped the nets for 37 more on Tuesday evening as the Warriors rolled Roy in its home opener 73-43.
"I think the injury served as extra motivation for him," said Weber coach Mark Larsen. "He hit the weight room and lifted hard, worked on ball handling and generally improved the rest of his body."
"He started out with non-contact drills, but has been going hard for the last eight to 10 weeks. Every time he gets hit, I hold my breath that he doesn't get hurt, but I feel the same way about all of our players."
Schenck was solid in all facets of the game, shooting 12-of-14 from the field, including 3-of-3 from beyond the arc, with 10-of-11 from the charity stripe, two rebounds, four assists and four steals in 29 minutes.
"I didn't know how many points I had until the game was over," Schenck said. "I was just focused on getting the win and coming out and getting a team victory. It's not about me; it's about the team and doing what we need to do to improve as we go along."
Weber had a balanced attack after Schenck as Mason Miles scored nine points, Auston Tesch came off the bench to net eight, Jaren McKnight checked in with six and Garrett Beckey tallied five points, hauling in a game-high eight rebounds, as the Warriors put 15 players into the box score.
"We know teams are going to pay attention to Hayden, so we try to put others in position to be successful," Larsen said. "They are going to try to take him away, so that will open up the other guys."
The Warriors went 26-of-47 from the field for 55.3 percent and shot 78.9 percent (15-of-19) from the free throw line, while holding the Royals to 31.1 (14-of-45) percent from the floor.
Roy was led by Chase DeBoer, who came off the bench to score 11 points, including a trio of 3-pointers, while Jaden Jackson added eight points in a starting role.
After scoring 27 points in the first half, the Warriors scored 23 points in each of the final two stanzas to win going away.
