Gladbrook - Reinbeck 8th Grade Boys Basketball move to 11-0 on Season By Coach Steve Luethje
February 11, 2011
Thursday, Jan. 27th, G-R 8th grade Boys Basketball played a home game against West Marshall, with the Rebels winning 39-17, now 11–0 overall. Rebels jumped on the Trojans to start the game with a 10-0 run, and at halftime the score was 23-5. We then played a new _ trap defense that we had not played this season. I would love to have stayed in that longer, but with a 29-7 lead shortly into the 3rd quarter. We pulled back and focused on another goal to get a basket for Matt VanHaunen during the second half. He deserves every minute of playtime, he works very hard every night in practice and is a great teammate. During this game our fans got to see some unselfish post playing, as Zach Pierce, has raised his game to read the double team and make the pass to other big men off the double team. It’s all about team work, and hustling- equals a good things happening. The Rebels leading scorer was Cameron Clark 16 pts (season high), Luke Holman 6 pts, Brady Kuehl 5 pts, Zach Pierce 4 pts, Bradon Trepp (solid game), Noah Orht, Logan Flamme, and Phil Zimmerman 2 pts each. Our final game is Monday Jan 31st A-P at Gladbrook to conclude our season, the starting time is 4:15 p.m.for the 8th graders.
