The Wiggins Tigers boys’ varsity basketball team won their game against the Wray Eagles at Wray on Saturday, February 16.
“I feel that as a team we played well, but we still made some dumb mistakes,” said senior guard Terran Freauff. The team was up quick in the game, but not by a large margin. They were only up by seven points at the end of the first period, with the score of thirteen to six.
The boys felt the team played really well on offense this game, according to junior Justin Peggram. The leading scorers were sophomore Kaeson Risner with twenty-three points, sophomore Tucker Teague with sixteen points, and senior Terran Freauff with sixteen points. “The defense was also pretty good, but the offense was a better part of the game,” said Peggram.
Freauff felt that the team is improving but that they are still making the same mistakes that they always make. The biggest issue that the team had was having a hard time hitting their shots. According Peggram the team did really well with passing the ball around and getting the other team’s defense out of sync, and being able to get their inside shots. The team won the game overall with a score of sixty four to forty.
The boys lost to Akron on Tuesday February 18, by twenty-seven points. The boys are set to play the Union Colony Timberwolves on Friday, February 21, at around six o’clock.
