JV End Week 1-1

Coach Ludwig

January 29, 2019

The junior varsity jumped out to an early lead against Neligh-Oakdale at home on Tuesday and never looked back on their way to a 50-31 victory.  By focusing on defense, we held the Warriors to single-digit scoring in both the first and second quarters to take a 25-9 lead at the half.  N/O played us closer in the second half, but we were able to outscore them by three and pull away for the win.  In addition to playing good team defense, we were also active on the boards, especially on the offensive end of the floor, pulling down 11 offensive rebounds and converting on several second or even third shots.  And again, we demonstrated good team play on offense, with three players in double figures and seven players getting into the scoring column, while seven players also handed out assists.

            On Thursday, the JV made the short trip to O'Neill for a game against the rival Eagles.   The opening quarter was played close, as we trailed by only one, 14-13, but in the second quarter, our defense lagged and we had trouble getting good shots, enabling our opponent to outscore us 15-2 and build a 29-15 lead at halftime. We continued to struggle in the second half, and by taking advantage of our turnovers (23 for the game) and our cold shooting (34%), O'Neill extended their lead to 45-24 by the end of the third quarter and eventually 56-28 at the final buzzer.  It wasn't the performance or outcome we were looking for, but we look to make improvements in several areas before our next game, which will be a rematch against the Eagles on February 4.
