The junior varsity boys basketball team faced the Vista Ridge Rangers in a tough game. The Lions fought hard, but came up short as the Rangers gained a victory 54-33.

The Freshman A team faced a close tough loss with the Rangers squeaking by two possessions.

“I thought [against] Eastview we didn’t play as well as I thought we had before or didn’t necessarily show the progress I thought we had before, but against Vista Ridge [it was a] complete turnaround,” McNeil said, “I thought they played great, we played really well. We played good for four quarters. We scored 20 points in the third quarter which we had some games where we hadn’t scored 20 points at all. So I mean that was a big step for us last night.”

 

Last Friday the JV Lions faced a tough game as they defeated the Eastview Patriots 37-36 in a close game.

In the first quarter, the Patriots led the Lions 7-3. The Lions were able to tie the game 16-16 at the end of the half. In the third quarter, the Lions led by 29-28 in a close quarter. The Lions kept up offensively and were able to defeat the Patriots by one point.

“We’ve been doing [well], we’ve been getting better,” sophomore Cody Bayer said, “and we’ve just [been] playing more as a team and working together”.

The Freshman A Lions faced a close defeat against the Patriots 50-44. The Lions kept up the Patriots in the first quarter as Eastview led 11-10. In the second quarter, the Lions continued to keep up with the Patriots as Eastview still led 29-23 at the end of the half. At the end of the third quarter, the Lions nearly tied the game as Eastview led 35-33. At the end of the 4th quarter, the Patriots squeaked by with a win 50-44. Freshman Alexander Djukic had many block shots and continues to be a talent for him.

The Freshman B Lions also faced a close defeat as the Patriots won 41-32. The Lions nearly tied up the game at the end of the 1st quarter as the Patriots led 10-9. In the second quarter, the Lions came back to lead at the end of the half 19-14. The third quarter the Lions kept up the pace and led the quarter 25-23. In the final quarter, the Patriots came back to win a close game with a score of 41-32.

To prepare for their next game against Dripping Springs, the team will have to continue to improve on themselves and as a team.

“[We will need to] keep breaking down little points and things that I try to identify that we need to correct and fix, and things that we can do better that’ll help us continue to get better,” freshman coach McNeil said, “[Those] things that are going to help us improve.”
