Gwinn, Michigan– 02/09/16– Our Gwinn ModelTowner Boys basketball stayed at home this Tuesday night to take on the Norway Knights. It was an interesting game for our Gwinn players. Mike and Justin brought you all of the in-game coverage on Fox Sports Marquette 105.1 and 99.9. Also, streamed LIVE at GoToGwinn.com.
The first quarter started off great for our Modeltowners. The Knights made the first two points of the game but our ModelTowner guys were right behind them with a couple three pointers by Austin Forbes and a few baskets by other Gwinn basketballers. 16-15 was the score at the end of the first quarter with our ModelTowners in the lead. Second quarter action started to lean in favor of the Knights. Carter Ghiringhelli came back into the game at the beginning of two and Justin had mentioned that he is like a little energizer bunny. The defense of the Modeltowners did take a bit of a break, it seemed, in this second quarter and that allowed the Knights to gain their lead. 35-20 was the score at halftime with the Knights in the lead.
The second half of the game was led by the Knights. Tucker Taylor had a nice “man-sized” rebound this quarter! The Norway Knights kept on scoring though and the score at the end of three was 29-45. For the last quarter of the game, the ModelTowners picked up their hustle. It started to get a little physical out on the court this quarter. Justin had mentioned that the ModelTowners just need to focus on staying under control and working the offense a little bit more. Reed Weidenhoefer made an awesome block above the rim way up high! Carter Ghiringhelli also got a nice three pointer for our ModelTowners towards the end of the game to keep the spirit. 37-58 was the final score as our Modeltowner guys took a defeat from the Norway Knights. Coach had said that the ModelTowners need to work on their defense and that they just need to play with more hustle throughout all of the quarters instead of just one. Tucker Taylor had said that it seemed like as soon as the team starts to trail, it is almost like no one really tries to pick up the slack and to help that he said that even if they are trailing, the guys just need to stay positive and take the whole game on.
