What: The Buccaneers face the defending O.K. Red conference champions, West Ottawa, at home on Friday night at 7:30 p.m. The Panthers come into this one 5-1 overall and 2-0 in conference play. All five of the team’s wins have been by 10 or more points. Grand Haven enters this one on a six game winning streak. The way the Bucs have responded since the Spring Lake loss has been exceptional. The team chemistry throughout this squad has been second to none and that has contributed greatly towards the teams success. This kind of play will need to continue for the Bucs if they wish to get a victory against a rival. West Ottawa has more height than the Buccaneers do and have a lot of returning talent from last years conference championship team. It is going to be a tough opponent to face for Grand Haven but nonetheless they are up for the challenge.

 

They said it: “We are prepared for anything they throw at us,” senior Malic Love said. “We have the ability to beat many teams, yes we are aware that they are a strong team but if we focus on ourselves and play our game, we will win.”

 

Keys to Winning: The Buccaneers will of course have to continue shooting well and must be able to defend the big guys down low. The Bucs cannot find themselves down big as it will be tough playing from behind against a team of this caliber. 0
