The first half was pretty low scoring as neither team executed or shot the ball very well. I challenged the guys at the half and they really stepped up. Albeit not right away. Farwell opened the half on a 7-0 run, to take a 29-24 lead. We quickly answered with a 6-0 run. The 3rd was back & forth.
We were down 2, 43-41, after 3. We picked up the pressure & intensity in the 4th and they didn’t handle it too well. We won going away, outscoring them 23-12 in the 4th.
Connor hit 5-6 Ft’s in the 4th, 13-15 for the game.
Kam was huge for us, scoring 10 of his 20 in the 4th. He was hitting 3’s & making layups & floaters. Dom was all over the place like usual. He led us in rebounds (7) & asts (4) & stls (4). He’s a little animal, biggest heart in the gym!
This was another great team win. We’ve won 3 straight & 10 our of last 13.
It was a very physical & really emotional game. The guys really played intense tonight. It was a great game to be a part of.
We are now 11-6, (8-4 in MSAC). We play at Breckenridge Friday night. This win guaranteed us a winning season, the first time since 2009/10 (11-9). Last year we were 11-11. Last Friday nights win guaranteed us a winning record in conference play, we haven’t done that in well over a decade. Last year we were 7-7 in conference play.
Coleman JV won 67-42. Ayden Rhule 21 has pts. Konner Carbeano had 17 pts. Coleman JV is now 14-3.
