February 26, 2013Southport High School
The boys varsity basketball team hosted Mooresville Friday, February 22 on their senior night. The team lost 50-46.
Senior Quinton Sanders led the team with 10 points and five rebounds, senior Kameron Kreutzberger had nine points and sophomore Malik Bennett had seven points and seven rebounds.
Head varsity coach Mr. Kyle Simpson thought the team played very hard.
“We cut down our amount of turnovers and took good shots,” Simpson said.
The team just missed a few key free throws and shots at important times in the game according to Simpson.
Simpson expressed how he talked to his seniors throughout the season about their future and how much he appreciated their time they put in this season.
“It was sad to know this could be the last time the seniors played on their home floor,” Simpson said.
The seniors maintained a good attitude throughout the season according to Simpson and he hopes the senior class next year continues to build on what the seniors brought to the team.
Senior Jacob Hunter had mixed feelings about senior night.
“It was sad because it could be the last time I play high school basketball at home, but I’m excited to start a new chapter of my life outside of high school,” Hunter said.
The boys will travel to Decatur Central on Wednesday to take on Ben Davis in the first round of sectionals. The game is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m.
Come out and support your Cards.
