WARREN AREA HIGH SCHOOL: 85
Tonight was our last home game for the 6 seniors: Brian, Nate, Ashton, Cole, and Chance. This group of guys are great kids and always give a lot of effort on the floor. These seniors went 28-21 as juniors and seniors. A lot of them put in several hours of work in the off season to get to where they are, and I am proud of this group.
As for this season we end with a .500 season going 12-12. I think everyone could think of a few games we wish we could have back, but they will also remember a few awesome games like Titusville, Seneca, and Cambridge Springs.
Besides the first quarter, we struggled in several areas.
We had 14 turnovers in the first half, which makes it difficult to stay in games.
They are not a bigger team than we are, but we were outrebounded tonight. Becker really went hard for the rebounds and we allowed him to out hustle us.
They got past us often on the dribble drive, which makes it really hard to defend well.
Markus Lambert led us in scoring with 16 points.
Stephan Brady had his best game of the season with a double double: 11 points and 10 rebounds.
Nate James scored the majority of his 10 points in the second half.
For playoffs, we will have to wait until Sunday to see if they are allowing 8 teams in or 6. If we do not make playoffs, that will be disappointing BUT we have no say in that decision.
Not knowing where we stand playoff wise, I would also like to say a few comments about the future of Corry Basketball. The JV team went 14-8, this year with a group that was a little more inexperienced with the 9th grade playing JV this year. With this being difficult at times, Coach C did a great job managing the team. These young kids are a step further than they would have been going into next year, which will make the game so much easier for them next year. We have a great young core of guys and our two leading scorers coming back next year. I like where Corry Boys Basketball stands right now! I look forward to taking a break, but I also look forward to getting back in the gym in May with a group of guys who like basketball.
