JV Huskies Take 4

February 12, 2018

 

            To start a busy week, the Huskies hosted O'Neill on Monday night and earned a 63-32 win.  After close first quarter, we held a 13-11 lead, but as the game wore on, we turned up the defensive intensity to hold the Eagles to single-digit scoring in each of the remaining three periods and to create energy on the offensive end of the floor.  On the night, nine Huskies collaborated for 19 steals, and overall, we forced O'Neill into 26 turnovers.  Offensively, we shared the ball well and had balanced scoring, with 9 players handing out 20 assists and 12 Huskies chipping in points.

            On the following night, the Niobrara/Verdigre Cougars came to town, and once again our defense set the tone as we used full court pressure to build a 25-3 lead at the end of one quarter, which we stretched to 48-10 at half-time.  In the second half, the pace of play slowed for both teams and scoring was limited, but in the end, we came away with a 58-16 victory.  As in our previous game, we had 9 players picking off 19 steals, and we pressured the opposition into 20+ turnovers. And again, we had good ball distribution and balanced scoring with 18 assists handed out by 8 Huskies and 9 players contributing points.

            JV action continued on Thursday with a two-quarter home match-up against St. Mary's.  After a big first quarter, the Huskies led 25-9 as a result of good inside-outside play and hot shooting from behind the arc, but in the second quarter, both teams played even (4-4), making the final score 29-13.

            On Saturday, we closed out the week with a two-quarter road contest at Neligh. One of our emphases against the Warriors was playing 16 minutes of solid Husky basketball, and after jumping out to a 15-5 first quarter lead, we followed that with an 11-2 second quarter for a 26-7 win and achievement of our pre-game goal.  In addition, we took care of the ball well, committing only 3 turnovers, and we shot well from the free throw line, going 4/6 for 67%.
