Coming off a victory the night before at Bedford, the Saline JV hoops squad came out flat against Lincoln Tuesday night and lost 84-67, dropping their season record to 7-5.  The Hornets kept things close through the first half but twelve turnovers led directly to twelve points and helped Lincoln to a 41-36 lead at the half. 

Six third quarter turnovers allowed the Railsplitters to pull away and open up a 20-point lead going into the fourth quarter.  “We didn’t play well.  We didn’t execute or make plays and give Lincoln credit, their defensive pressure got us rattled,” JV head coach Jason Pickett said.  “That is a part of the growth you get with a young team.  We’ll learn from this and continue to grow.”  Freshman forward Connor Terech played a strong game for the Hornets, netting 16 points and 11 rebounds, including six off the offensive glass. 

The JV squad will host the Dexter Dreadnaughts on Friday.  Tip off is 5pm.

HORNET FRESHMEN SQUAD NETS ROAD WIN

The Hornet freshmen squad went on the road and netted a 55-40 win against the Lincoln Railsplitters on a cold, rainy Tuesday night.  Freshman guard Win Walker scored 19 points in the wining effort, followed by Brad Wisniewski with 18.  Freshmen head coach LJ Frazier said this after the game about his team’s performance. 

“We came out ready to play.  When we do that, we are really hard to stop.” 

The freshmen get right back into action this Friday, playing host to Dexter.  Game time is 4pm at Saline High School.
