Superior vs. Southern Valley
December 24, 2020
The Superior Boys Basketball team traveled to D1 No. 4 ranked Southern Valley Friday for a clash with the Eagles. The Cats trailed by four points after the first quarter. Southern Valley extended their lead in the second out scoring Superior by 7 in the period. "Our 1-3-1 defense gave them trouble early, but in the second quarter they started to figure it out. We switched to man-to-man in the second half and played much better defense," said Coach Chadwell.
Superior won the third quarter 8-7, still trailing in the game by 10. "Another sub-par shooting night plagued us. We shot 20 percent from the field, they shot 42 percent. We led in most of the other categories stat wise," said Coach Chadwell. The final was Superior 36, Southern Valley 45. "I'm very pleased with where we are as a team. We just need to have confidence and hit some shots. We have the ability to change up defenses. The boys play extremely hard. Through each week we have progressed very well. We started the season off turning the ball over 22 times. We are making better decisions with the ball, shots just aren't dropping yet," said Coach Chadwell. Scoring was led by Jedd Whitmore who put in 9 points. Superior takes on Centennial Saturday for an afternoon showdown.
