Redemption on the court

After suffering a great loss in their previous game against Cass Technical High School, South’s boys freshman basketball team took the win in their second game against them. On Jan. 19, the Blue Devils redeemed their 44-56 loss against Cass Tech with a 58-36 win. This win has greatly lifted the player’s spirits from the previous game and also made them more confident in their skill sets.

Going into the game, the team knew they were going to have to put in all their effort to win. From the very start, the game was intense and every single possession mattered. According to Evan Szymanski ’27, the win came down to forcing Cass Tech to make mistakes in their plays.

“It was just about winning the turnover battle and winning the three-point battle,” Szymanski said. “From there it was easy.”

With this being their second match-up against Cass Tech, they had some knowledge of what the team was like. Knowing their play style, Charlie McPartlin ’27 was able to capitalize off of it and use it to the team’s advantage.

“We know how they play now so we were able to break that down and respond accordingly,” McPartlin said.

Being halfway through their season, the team has developed in both their skills and their teamwork. As they’ve gone through the season, the players have built off of each other’s strengths and used them to grow their own skills. Trey Grabowski ’27 feels the team has expanded their skillset as a whole.

“I think we’ve shown a lot of improvement,” Grabowski said. “We’re a lot better than we were on day one.”
