The Fisher Boys Basketball team started their tip off tournament on November 24th. The Bunnies lost their first game to Tri-Valley ,48-47, after leading basically the whole game by double digits. The Bunnies fell apart defensively in the fourth quarter; and shooting 48% (16-33), from the free throw line doesn’t help anything. And also lost the second game on the 25th to Paxton, 61-40. The Bunnies just couldn’t get it together offensively or defensively all night. After two days off on the 26th and 27th, the Bunnies faced another 0-2 team in Armstrong-Potomac. The Bunnies jumped out to an early lead and never looked backed, as they won the game 61-53. On the cross over game the Bunnies played 1-2 Grant Park. The Bunnies fought hard and pulled out a very convincing win over the Dragons 63-35.
I interviewed Simon Corley to see what he thought about the team.
Corley said throughout every game the Bunnies have a lot of “motivation to keep playing hard as we can no matter the score. As a team we know not to give up, because that doesn’t just mean you’re just giving up on the game, you’re also giving up on the team.”
Before the games Corley was unsure of how the team would perform, Corley said, “The team was very nervous. With only two weeks of practice, I didn’t know if we were ready to compete at the level us, and our coaches know we can.”
Overall the Bunnies finished 2-2 in the tournament after starting off with two losses, and took home 5th overall.
