Junior Hoop Boys (11-12 years old) 2015-2016
Coaches James "House" Brown and Delane Heath
1/16/16 - A big 29-22 win to move into sole possession of 1st place with a 3-1 record. Had we lost, it would have been a four way tie for 1st. Ben picked up 4 fouls midway through the 2nd quarter and had to sit until lat in the 3rd. James did a great job of taking over point while Ben was on the bench. The score held tight, then once Ben came back in the team went on a push into the lead. Ben scored 6 after re-entering the game. It was a neat day in that no player in either Jr Hoops game scored over 7, but 18 players scored more than 4 points.
1/9/16 -The team moved to 2-1 with yet
another close win. This time it was 31-28 over Riverside. It was
Ben's turn again to be the leading scorer with 8 and again all players scored.
Jared had 7, Ridge 5, Chris and James 4 and William 3. Coach House gave
Ben the tough assignment of guarding his friend Matthew as tight as possible in
man on man coverage, even when he didn't have the ball. That was a tough
assignment since Ben had just finished playing an indoor soccer game. He
handled it great and played the point fantastic as well. A really solid
12/19/16 - 32-30. A narrow 2 point win over Aaron's brought the team to 1-1 on the season. Jared was the big scorer with 14, Chris had a big game as well with 10 points.
12/12/15 - 24-26. A narrow 2 point loss to EMWD in our regular season opener. Ben led all scorers on his team, which included all 7 players, with 8 points.
12/10/15 - Scrimmage. Lost 30-33 to
Riverside in overtime. We were up with the ball with 14 seconds left, so
it was one that we could have one. The kids played insanely good during
the 2nd and 3rd quarters, only giving up one basket, but were outplayed in the
1st and 4th quarters. Ben scored 6 and played really well again.
Jared again led scorers with 12, Chris had 6, Ridge 5 and James 1.
12/5/2015 - Scrimmage. Won 25-19 over Aaron's. Ben played great at point and scored 4 points. Jared led scorers with 10. Ridge and Chris each scored 4, Jontae 2 and William 1.
