Varsity Boys End Week at 1-1

Coach Ludwig

January 14, 2019

The Husky varsity began the week with a road game at Crofton on Tuesday.  Offensively, we started quickly, with five players getting into the scoring column using a mix of good inside-outside play.  At the end of the first quarter, we led 17-15, and by halftime, we had doubled our lead 34-30.  In the third quarter, our offense cooled down, and defensively we allowed the Warriors too many good looks at the basket, allowing them to whittle our lead down to one, 42-41, going into the fourth.  In the final frame, we hit some big shots in the paint and made key free throws to seal the 60-53 win.  Against a physical Crofton team, boxing out and attacking the boards were essential for team success, and on the night, we outrebounded the Warriors 26-20.  We also did a good job finding an open teammate for a high percentage shot, with eight Huskies combining for 15 assists.

            On Thursday, we hosted North Central, and after four tightly-contested quarters of play, we found ourselves coming up short 42-20 at the final buzzer.  While we did take care of the ball well, turning it over only five times, we struggled to make shots, converting only 33% of our field goal attempts.  We also allowed the Knights an edge on the boards, as they outrebounded us 31-24, with 19 of those on defense, which prevented us from getting many second shot opportunities.  However, we did outshoot NC from the free throw line, going 73% from the stripe compared to 47% for the Knights, and we dished out more assists (WH-12, NC-6) than our opponent, so these are positives we can build upon as we prepare for Plainview and Boyd County next week.
