JV boys’ basketball falls to Viera


The junior varsity boys’ basketball team lost to Viera High School 67-33 Tuesday night.

“We need to stop giving the ball away as much,” freshman Charlie Pavlick said. “We need to not go as fast and slow down the ball in attack.”

Sophomore Kyle Peters said the team needs to work on its offense, and that with missed layups and turnovers, the boys plan on making some changes.

“We’ve got to start getting rebounds,” sophomore Kyle Peters said. “We have to start scoring as a team. When we play, it’s mostly just individuals trying to score by themselves. We’ve got to start running plays and attacking as a unit.”

Although they did not attain the results they wanted, it is early in the season and the boys, as well as Head Coach Chip Golden, are learning from their performances.

“Running our half-court offense was definitely our weakness in this game,” Golden said. “We’ve focused equally on offense and defense up to this point, but our defense is probably better than our offense right now so definitely need to shift our focus to offense.”

The boys’ will face Eau Gallie High School on Thursday at 5:30 p.m.
