Varsity Boys B-Ball Wins Over Montrose


Theron Brooks

Boys varsity basketball team traveled to Montrose on Tuesday, Jan 11th, and came home with another conference win. This puts the Marauders at 7-0 so far in the season, beating the Rams 45-34 Tuesday night with a rough game. Ovid Elsie didn’t have any stand out players going 1-15 of 3 pointers. It was not a good shooting night for the Marauders. The Rams scored most of their points off of 3 pointers which Ovid Elsie could not stop. The game went back and forth making it a close game until the 4th quarter when the Marauders went on a 10 to 0 run finishing the game up by 11. Players stated the team needs to improve upon its finishing at the rim and their defense needs to be a lot better as well, junior Clay Wittenburg had a good night on defense with 2 back to back blocks, having finished the game with 4 blocks, along with Freshman Axel Newel having 4 of his own.
