JV Boys Win 2

Coach Ludwig

December 10, 2018

On Friday night, West Holt hosted Ainsworth in JV action and posted a 71-48 victory.  Overall, it was a solid team effort, with four Huskies scoring in double figures, and all team members contributing positively through defense, rebounding, or dishing out assists.  One key to the game was ball security.  Through four quarters of play, we committed only 3 turnovers compared to 18 for the Bulldogs.  And while both teams shot very well and made over 50% of their field goal attempts, by taking care of the ball, we were able to take 24 more shots than our opponent and capitalize on more of these scoring opportunities.  One thing we will need to work on as the season progresses is free throw shooting; for the night, we were 45.4% from the line, so that gives us a place to start.

            On Saturday night, the Huskies traveled to Burwell for a three-quarter game against the Longhorns.  We opened the game with some hot perimeter shooting to build a 16-12 lead after one period of play.  By the end of the second quarter, we had increased our lead to six, and by finishing the game strong and keeping our composure, we able to pull away 41-28 at the final buzzer.  Statistically, many areas of the game were even, but a slight edge in turnovers and field goal percentage were the difference.  For the second night in a row, we struggled from the free throw line, shooting only 48%, so again, this is an area in which we would like to see improvement.
