JV Boys Win 1

by Coach Ludwig

January 29, 2018

            The Husky JV hosted O'Neill on Thursday and escaped with a 50-47 win.  After a tight first quarter that ended up knotted at 15, O'Neill went up by two (23-21) at half-time.  A closely played third quarter saw the Eagles increase their lead to three (38-35), but with determined play in the fourth quarter, the Huskies were able to overcome the deficit and come out on top.  While the teams were statistically even in several categories such as field goal percentage, defensive rebounds, and free throw attempts, we did have the advantage in two areas that were significant in the win: turnovers and free throw percentage.  On the night, we won the turnover battle 15-6 and shot 68% from the line compared to 61% for O'Neill.  For several weeks, we had been talking about the importance of making our free throws in close games, and improvement in that area paid off for us against the Eagles.  The next action for the young Huskies will come on Monday, February 5, with a "C" team game at home against O'Neill; a home JV game against Niobrara/Verdigre on Tuesday, February 6, and a home JV game versus St. Mary's on Thursday, February 8.
