December 10, 2013 vs Wapello
December 16, 2013Lone Tree Community School
The Lone Tree boys basketball returned to their home gym this week with a match up against Wapello. The Indians came in shooting the ball very well in the first half as they hit 5 of the first 6 three pointer they took. The Lions trailed much og the first quarter but a run to close the second put the Lions up 35-31 at the half. The third quarter Lone Tree never got a comfortable lead and led by only 2 to start the 4th 47-45. The Lions opened the 4th on a 5-0 run building the lead to 7. Wapello answered with a run of their own and with 3 minutes remaining in the game Lone Tree trailed by 5. Two key 3 pointers by Shay Hudachek and a steal and a basket by Jovonte Squiers allowed the Lions to tie the game at 62 all. Lone Tree had the ball with 14 seconds left and Nick Viner took the ball to the hoop, Matt Wieland put in the missed basket at the buzzer and the Lions escape 64-62.
We really turned the ball over too many times and we did not rebound well at all. I still give our kids a lot of credit as they responded well to adversity especially being down 5 with three to go, we stayed patient on offense and did not force shots, we were very fortunate to win this game.
