All-European Scott Sublousky backed up a 33-point outing Tuesday with 19 points Friday night as Ramstein claimed its second double-digit victory in as many outings this season, a 62-45 non-regional road victory over Wiesbaden.

Brent Schuck, who scored 15 points in Tuesday’s 86-57 victory at Baumholder, added 10 points this time as the Royals completed the first two games of a season-opening, five-game road trip without missing a beat.

The Royals are to play Region II games at AFNORTH Friday and Saturday and visit Heidelberg of Region III on Dec. 15.

Terrell Harper had 16 points and five rebounds for Wiesbaden in its opener.

In other boys games of note:

ISB 47-52, Menwith Hill 39-40: At Menwith Hill, England, the Mustangs of D-IV played their D-I visitors close in the first half both days, only to fall victim to turnovers and ISB’s hot shooting late in each game.

“They didn’t miss a shot and we kept throwing the ball away,” Menwith Hill coach Pete Resnick said of his team’s late-game woes. “Austin Beck made 11 points in the fourth quarter on Friday. Every time they needed a basket, they went to him.”

Menwith’s Le’Shawn Adams scored 22 points, including four three-pointers, on Friday and 14 points on Saturday.

Lakenheath 65-70, Brussels 25-52: At RAF Lakenheath, England, the Lancers’ underclassmen fueled the sweep, according to new coach Alan Campbell.

Sophomores Malique Pratt and Taiyo Robertson scored 15 and 13 points, respectively, Friday night in a victory aided by a nine rebounds by freshman Lincoln Nora and 10 points from freshman Derek Schipper. Freshman Kyle Dawiki had four steals for Lakenheath.

On Saturday, Robertson scored 23 points, and Schipper added seven. The youngsters allowed senior Eddie Alford to help out; he had 19 points, eight rebounds and four steals as the Lancers improved to 2-0 overall and in Region I.

Hanau 53, Mannheim 34: On Friday at Mannheim, Vernon Miles and Spencer Miller each scored 13 points to lead the D-IV Panthers over the Bison of D-II in a Region III game.

DeAndre Holmes added 12 points and D’Shawn Carroll 10 for Hanau (1-0). Mannheim (0-2 overall and in Region III) got 14 points from Courtney Wicks.

SHAPE 56-48, Alconbury 16-9: At SHAPE, Belgium, the regional-play concept took a hit when tiny D-IV Alconbury was thrown into the den of the Spartans, the 2007 European D-II runners-up.

Both games activated the 39-point DODDS-Europe courtesy rule. But before the early endings, SHAPE’s Kelsey Bardell scored a combined 30 points, made seven steals, four blocks, four assists and grabbed 10 rebounds.

Heidelberg 65-86, BFA 23-44: At Kandern, Germany, the defending D-I champion Heidelberg Lions continued their march through the Division II teams now assigned to their region with romps at Black Forest Academy on Friday and Saturday.

Heidelberg (3-0 overall and in Region III), coming off a 40-point home victory over Mannheim on Wednesday, benefited from 18- and 29-point scoring efforts by All-European Chris Frazier and a 14-point, 14-rebound effort on Friday by James Wright.

Frazier had off nine steals Friday and six Saturday as Heidelberg harried BFA (0-4, 0-2) into three single-digit quarters Friday and one Saturday.

Aviano 73-72, Marymount 34-61: At Marymount International School of Rome, Bobby Henderson and All-European Andre Dean assumed scoring leadership roles for the unbeaten Saints (4-0 overall, 2-0 Region V).

Henderson scored 27 points Friday and 12 Saturday and totaled 16 rebounds for the weekend. Dean, playing sparingly on Friday, went 14-for-16 from the line in a 28-point, eight-assist outing Saturday as the Saints overcame a 33-point afternoon by Marymount’s Saidi Mwanwndu. Mwanwndu had scored 19 Friday.
