WHAT HAPPENED/WHAT IT MEANS: The boys basketball team took on Rockford in a rescheduled away conference game on Wednesday Feb. 6, winning 48-43. A good start that gave the Bucs an eleven point lead in the first half had them never looking back. This ends the group’s three game losing streak, littered with slow starts and poor free throw shooting.

KEY MOMENT: The squad got off to a hot start with a 17-6 first quarter lead that included five three-pointers made by the Bucs. This was something the group desperately needed, starting off slow against Zeeland West and West Ottawa in their past two games.

KEY PLAYERS:

  • 1st star – senior Bryce Taylor: Taylor had a dominant night from the 3-point line, finishing with 14 points, an important offensive production to help clinch the win.
  • 2nd star –  junior Drew Sinke: Sinke also had a successful shooting night from long distance, completing the game with 10 points.
  • 3rd star – junior Owen Ross: Ross had a great night in the paint using his height to earn 10 points on the night.

THEY SAID IT: “I feel like we did great,” junior Adam Strom said. “It wasn’t the cleanest win but we got it done and we needed a win like that.”

UP NEXT: The squad takes on Hudsonville in a road conference battle on Friday, Feb. 8.
