DUNDEE COMMUNITY HIGH SCHOOL: 28
The boys JV basketball team swept the season series against the Dundee Vikings after picking up a 40-28 win Friday night. The win improves the JV team to 13-1 overall and 9-1 in the LCAA.
Despite a cold shooting first half, the Redwolves defense held strong giving up only 14 points. The Redwolves would lead 17-14 at the intermission. The defense continued the rest of the evening, while offense was able to pick up just enough. The Redwolves came out of halftime to outscore the Vikings 14-6 in the quarter and build an 11 point lead heading into the final quarter. The momentum of the game really changed after Andy Fair nailed a buzzer beating three pointer as the 3rd quarter horn sounded. Clinton kept the Vikings at a distance the rest of the game and cruised to the win.
"The thing I was most proud of this game was our defense and our composure. We held Dundee to single digits each quarter, which is really difficult to do against any team," Coach Dutton said following the game. We had to deal with multiple defenses throughout the game as well, including some gimmick defenses, and our guys really responded well to the challenge."
Andy Fair led the Redwolves again with 16 points on the evening. What was most impressive, was that Fair finished with team high 12 rebounds, to record his first double-double of the season, while also adding 4 steals. Calen Keith added 7 points and 3 rebounds. Teddy Pizio finished with 6 points, and 4 rebounds. Jalen Stelzer and Chase Gillman each added 4 points, with Gillman recording 4 rebounds, while Preston Cruz chipped in with 3 points, 4 rebounds and 4 steals. Carson Pixley contributed 5 rebounds.
The Redwolves will be back in action on Monday for a Valentines Day game at home against Hudson. This game is a make up game from last week's cancellation. The JV game will start at 5:30 with the varsity game set to tip at 7:00.
