What: The Bucs fell to the Rockets of Reeths Puffer on Tuesday night, 54-39.

 

What Happened: Grand Haven fell behind early to a veteran loaded Reeths Puffer team and were never able to recover. The Bucs were down 12-7 after the first quarter, 21-17 at the half and 39-27 going into the fourth. Missed shots, turnovers and lack of defense were all huge factors in the loss as the Rockets were able to put up 24 points off of three pointers.

 

Key players for the Bucs: Senior point guard Casey Constant led the way in scoring for the team with 20 points and freshman Owen Worthington was also able to contribute three points.

 

Key players for the Rockets: Emcee Williams and Carter Fulton both had 17 point performances.

 

They said it: “None of our shots were falling besides Casey, so part of it was our shooting,” Senior guard Bryce Taylor said. “Another part of it was we couldn’t get any rebounds, it’s tough to win a game when the other team out rebounds you.”

 

What this means: The Buccaneers start out the 2018-19 season 0-1 and have themselves some work to do on creating a flowing offense. The next couple days of practice the team will be primarily focusing on better movement on offense as well as improvements on rebounding and from the freethrow line.

Up Next: Grand Haven will host the Mona Shores Sailors on Friday, a team who also lost their season opener, 63-61 to Holland.
