G-R 8th Grade Boys Basketball-Open Season with a Win-By: Coach Steve Luethje
December 13, 2013
Tuesday, December 4, 2013, G-R 8th grade Boys Basketball team opened the season at Radcliffe, against South Hardin (Eldora, Hubbard, Radcliffe). G-R won the contest 41-27, now 1-0 overall. We played an up tempo game style with a lot of hustling and defense 1st thinking and it paid off holding the young Tigers to 27 points. Our G-R 8th grade Rebels has 12 players on this year’s team. We did a great job of overall teamwork, looking for the open player, pushing the ball up the floor with quick short passes as this 8th grade team likes to get out and run the floor, but we had a lot of turnovers that we need to learn from, too. We pulled our starters early allowing playtime by all. Leading the young Rebels was Caden Kickbush 14 pts., followed by Matt Johannsen 9 pts., Gage Murty 6 pts., Mason Skovgard and Walker Thede 4 pt. each, Joel Davis and Hunter Smoldt 2 pts. each, with Will Blakesley having a team high 6 rebounds, Owen Beach, Josh Peterson, and Kyle Koppen contributing with some good teamwork allowing for a nice 1st game win. Our upcoming schedule is Dec. 5th at Gladbrook vs BCLUW, Dec. 10 at West Marshall (State Center), Dec. 13 at Gladbrook vs East Marshall, Dec. 19 at Gladbrook vs Grundy Center, with starting time of 4:15 p.m. for 8th graders.
