On Saturday, Jan. 30, the JV boys basketball team defeated Clay High School with a final score of 70-19.

“I think we played well tonight. We were able to trust each other on both ends. Our box outs weren’t that great, but we can always improve on that at the next practice,” Justin Olesek (10) said.

The Indians took the lead early in the game, letting the Colonials score only two points in the first quarter.

“We really locked up on the defensive end and caused a lot of turnovers. That’s part of the reason we got such a good start,” Jack Davis (9) said.

This was an important game for the team aspect; the boys learned more about working together and communicating.

“We need to clean up some details, but I think we’re really starting to work and get together as a team,” Davis (9) said.

The JV boys basketball team will have their next home game on Friday, Feb. 12, against Michigan City at 5:30 p.m.
