Cougar Basketball Game 2 vs Hickory Hills

The 7th Grade Boy’s Basketball team faced the Hickory Hills Spartans in basketball action on Saturday. Both the A and B teams started out slow against their aggressive opponents and both team pushed hard in the second half but came away with different results.
After falling behind by eight the B team Cougars fought back with a great team defensive effort led by Cole Oliver and Noah Nease to claim a decisive 25-16 victory. Nayeem Choudhury led the team with six points while Noah Nease and Brant Jones had four steals each.
The A team had trouble finding the basket early in the game and did not keep pace with Spartans for almost three quarters. Finally at the end of the third with their team down by twenty points the Cougars came to life. Stifling defense from Jake Brown, Brant Jones, and Jake Thompson along with hot shooting got the Cougars back in the game with a chance to win in the final minute. Despite the great effort in the fourth the Cougars lost the game by one point- 38-37. Hunter Steinmetz led all scorers with sixteen points and Kendrick Price had nine.
Next up for the Cougars are the Study Stars this afternoon.
