The 7th-grade boys’ basketball team finished their season going undefeated at 15-0. This team won the MAJHAA conference and the MAJHAA conference tournament. This year’s 7th-grade team put up some impressive numbers both offensively and defensively. As a team, they averaged 52.5 points a game while giving up an average of 22.7 points a game.
All players made important contributions to the success of the offense. Seven players scored double digits in at least one game and 4 players averaged 7 points per game or more. The offense scored 60+ on 4 separate occasions.
Defense played a huge role in the success of the team. The defense allowed 20 points or fewer in 9 of the 15 games including holding 1 team to 9 points. This defense only allowed 40 points twice.
The statistic that cannot be measured is the commitment that each player put into learning the game of basketball this year. Each practice we learned new plays and offenses. Their commitment and dedication to learning will be evident within the next few years as their knowledge will far exceed their opponents from other schools.
