Boys Basketball Game Summaries
Saints Basketball Falls Hard Against GCA -- December 9 -- Jonas Akers
Saturday night, the Saints took a hard loss to the Cougars of Greenwood Christian, falling 71-57.
Saturday night the Saints traveled for their first time this season, and brought a good crowd with them. It was hard for the Saints to adapt to a new court at first, but eventually they found their groove in the second half. The leading scorer, Riley Wilson, dropped 20 of the 57 points scored throughout the entire game. Overall the Saints took a lot of fouls and that’s what ended up costing them the game.
They look forward to playing a 1-3 Southwestern team on Friday night, for their second away game of the year. The Saints get no rest and come back the following day to fight the Cardinal Ritter Raiders, for their first home matchup in over two weeks.
Saints fall in Opener - December 1 -- Mark Caster
Last Friday, your Boys Varsity Basketball team matched up with the Chargers of Central Christian. The first game of the season left many fans worried, wondering what a team who needed to replace 80% of last year’s scoring could actually do on a Varsity basketball floor…and I think its safe to say that the Saints’ performance left many fans leaving the gymnasium relieved. No, they didn’t win. A late Charger run in the 3rd quarter left the game just out of reach of your Saints as they spurred back in the 4th. But any morsel of doubt that your Saints can contend this year is certainly at rest. Maximum effort, stellar defense, and overall incredible ball play foreshadowed the season ahead, and the opportunity and potential to grow, learn, and become even better. Your Saints travel to Greenwood Christian Academy on Saturday. Lutheran leads the overall series 7-1. Come out and cheer them on as they prepare to get their eighth!
