Washington Wizards star Russell Westbrook would be proud of the Randolph bench, as they do his signature move, Rock-a-Baby, in their game against Christ's Household of Faith. The Lions defender was too small, according to the Rockets bench. 

29 was the magic number for the Randolph boys basketball team in their win against Christ's Household of Faith on Feb. 4.

The Rockets beat the Lions, 70-64, shooting 29 free throws and Junior Clay Nielsen scoring 29 points. 

The Rockets went 18-29 from the free throw line, more than doubling the Lions free throw makes and attempts. The Lions went 7-11 from the free throw line in the game. 

Originally, the Rockets were scheduled to travel to Schaeffer Academy on Thursday. The game was cancelled and the Rockets played against the Lions instead. 

Nielsen led both teams in scoring as well. Nielsen previously scored 29 points on Jan. 15 against Hayfield, a season high in scoring.  

Nielsen is currently average 18.5 points per game. 

Rockets Senior Devon Schultz made all four of the team's three-pointers in the game, finishing with 16 points. Sophomore Tyson Cooreman also had a strong showing with 13 points. 

The Rockets next game will be on the road against Spring Grove on Feb. 8.
