Huskies Win 2

December 16, 2018

    The Huskies traveled to Chambers on Tuesday night to take on the Renegades and posted a 62-37 win.  In the first half, we played a bit impatient, trying too hard to make things happen, missing shots we normally would make, and committing too many unforced turnovers.  At halftime we trailed the home team 26-24, but after refocusing in the locker room and getting back to our game plan, we outscored CWC 16-0 in the third quarter to take the lead and eventually pull away for the win.  In the second half, we also turned up the defensive intensity to generate some steals and create transition scoring opportunities.  In addition, by working the ball inside, we were able to get good shots and improve our 2-point field goal percentage to 73% for the game.

            Battle Creek came to town on Saturday night, and the Huskies earned a low-scoring, 43-36, win against the physical, athletic Braves team.   A tight first quarter ended in a 6-6 tie, and at halftime Battle Creek held a slim 20-17 advantage.  Stepping up the defense in the second half helped us outscore the opposition 15-7 and take the lead that we would maintain until the final buzzer.  One of the keys to this victory was balanced scoring, with 7 Huskies chipping in points.  We also shared the ball effectively, with 12 of our 15 made baskets coming from teammate assists.  Tough games like this can help us learn a lot about ourselves and help us develop as a team as we end the first part of our season and prepare for the stretch after Christmas.
