Boys basketball defeats Blue Valley 75-64

The Jags beat Blue valley on Tuesday, Dec. 12

The boys basketball team beat Blue Valley on Tuesday, Dec. 12.

Throughout the first half the game stayed at a close tie. Nonetheless, the team kept up the hard work and pushed harder according to junior Carter Kaifes. 

“I just said to keep fighting no matter what the score is,  you just gotta keep fighting even when it’s close,” said Kaifes. “We just kept moving in and didn’t speed up when they started trapping us.”

During the second half the Jags took the lead. According to senior Mason Kemp, the team only made a few small changes to continue pushing throughout the game.

“We just knew that we had to tighten down on defense,” Kemp said. “We had to make sure that they couldn’t get any easy buckets and just do our thing on offense and just not settle for any bad shots.” 

With the Jags winning their two previous games against Gardener-Edgerton and Eudora, the season seems to have a bright outlook. While this is only the third game of the season, Kaifes predicts the season to go very well. 

“We are definitely one of the better teams in the state,” Kaifes said. “If we keep working and remember to slow down, I think we have a really good shot this season.”

Kemp believes that the team could go to the state game. 

“We look really good these first three games so I’m expecting really good things,” Kemp said. “I think we have a good chance to make it to state if we keep it in line.”
