Cougar Basketball Game 3 vs Study

Your 7th grade Carver Cougars basketball team went up against the Study Stars yesterday. The B team came out ready to make up for their slow start in their last game. They did! Solid defense was led by Sam Stuckey and Brant Jones in the first along with Noah Nease grabbing a team high 4 steals and Josh Beach with three defensive rebounds. This forced the Stars to play the style of game the Cougars love- fast and furious. Carver was able to pull away in the second half behind an aggressive offense and sharp shooting.
Leading the team on offense was Cole Oliver with five points.
Hussain Rao and Logan Werdeman were instrumental in pushing the B team cougars past the Stars by a final score of 27-18. .
The A team stepped out on the floor not wanting to be outdone by their teammates. Study’s post players started out the game very physical and Carver was ready to answer with a combination of Ben Sandy, Isaiah Holyfield, Kendrick Price, and foul collecting Stephen “let me stand here” Smith. Carver shot the Stars out of the game running their offensive plays with precision and solid shooting. The Stars were reluctant to go down without a fight and came away with several steals during the second half- only to see Carver retaliate with steals of their own. Defensive leaders were Ben Sandy and Kendrick Price with a combined seven defensive rebounds and Hunter Steinmetz and Jake Thompson with a team high three steals each. Leading the Cougars to the 35-4 victory were Jake Thompson with 12points, and Ben Sandy with six.
The 7th grade Cougars will play the Cherokee Indians on Wednesday at 3:00 p.m. - the games will be free for any students who wish to attend-so please lets pack the gym and show who has the best fans in the city!
