A-Team Recap

Coach Cronk – This past weekend we had a great trip to Cordova.  A big thanks goes out to Stan Stephens for transporting us this weekend, we had a great trip.  On the way there we had some time to observe some humpback whales and also some Orcas.
On Friday evening the A team lost a close game to Cordova 25-27.  The Huskys played tough defense but just couldn’t score enough to take the lead late in the game.  We had a lot of good looks from close in the second half, but we just couldn’t get the ball through the hoop.  Owen Watson lead the scoring with 7, followed by Tino Tucker, Nick Alfaro, Corey Petersen, and Grayson Ade.  Rylen Case also played some great defense against some larger opponents.
Saturday’s game found much of the same.  The outcome was exactly the same with Cordova coming out ahead again, 25-27.  Valdez again struggled to convert shots from close against their zone defense.  We had some opportunities at the end of the game to tie it up, but the ball didn’t bounce our way.  The guys played with great effort and learned a lot about how doing the little things correct can really matter in these close games.  Saturday Theron Deisenroth lead in scoring with 6, followed by Jarrett Gage and Nick Alfaro with 5 and 4.
The Huskys travel up to Delta for their tournament this weekend.

B-Team Recap

 Coach Auble – This weekend the Huskies boys B team were excited to travel on the Stan Stephen’s Glacier Spirit to Cordova to play their first basketball games of the season; for some it was their first games of their middle school career. there was a lot of improvement from the first and second game with exercising discipline on offense and playing tougher defense, it was great to see especially since some have never played a competitive game before. i look forward to the next games and how we can improve more.
