Game6 Recap: BC 52 - U-Prep 38 (WIN)

Our boys played well today getting our 4th win of the season over an under matched U-Prep team. Our energy level was very low for most of the game but we found a way to score and improve. We pulled our foot off the gas a little too much and allowed U-Prep to make a comeback attempt but remained strong and secured the win. We dramatically improved our turnovers by only committing 13 for the game. It will be a long 8 days until our next game. Let's make sure all the boys stay active over the holiday. GO GRIZZLIES and HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

Player Highlights (notable performances): Ryan scored 4 points and is improving his confidence and overall game every time he plays. Very happy to see him continue to work hard. Jonah was his usual hard working hustler in this game. He scored 5 points (including a three shot), grabbed 3 rebounds and 2 steals. But his real value to the team is how hard he plays and defends. Jason scored 4 points (including a three shot) and grabbed a rebound and was overall more productive than past games. He is driving harder to the basket and putting up good shots under pressure now with confidence. Jace had a solid game with 7 points, 2 rebounds, 4 assists and 4 steals. His 4 assists earned him another Milk Shake Award. His ability to lead and run the point position is impressive. Matthew had a great rebounding night with 8 and 1 steal. His 8 rebounds earned him a Milk Shake Award (his first).

 Game5 Recap: BC 66 - Seattle Academy 62 (WIN)  3-2 Record

The Green Team played a HUGE game on Friday vs a very talented and athletic Seattle Academy team to notch our 3rd win of the season. This was a good old fashioned shoot-out with both teams scoring more than 60 points which is rare for a Middle School game. A player from each team scored 34 points and it seemed anything that went up came down through the basket for both sides. The game was very close at the end as Seattle Academy hit a three point shot with 8 seconds left. But we were able to hang in there for the win. Our boys played very hard and showed a toughness we had not seen before. GO GRIZZLIES!

Jace had to be convinced to shoot more but when he did, good things happened as he ended with 23 points, shooting a scorching 63% from the field and 100% from the free throw line. His 4 assists also led the team. Jordan was a warrior in this game as he was assigned to defend their best player. He score 3 points, grabbed 5 rebounds and 2 steals.

Game4 Recap: BC 42 - Northwest 17 (WIN)  2-2 Record

The Green Team boys brought everything together for this game and won convincingly vs Northwest. We did not have official stats for this game but we did a better job overall of reducing turnovers and play execution. A lot of playing time was available for this game and we saw many of our younger players improve and gain confidence. GO GRIZZLIES!!!

Team Statistics: No official stats for this game

Player Highlights (notable performances): Ryan was courageous in this game, continually attacking the defense and showing his crossover and step out moves. His 2 assists showed great improvement. Jonah had an estimated 6 rebounds as well as multiple assists and steals. His aggressive play saved a possession for us many times. He is becoming a monster on the boards. Jason played hard ending with 5 points and a couple of rebounds. He is doing much better driving and finishing in traffic. Jason also had a RIP steal giving him Matthew provided some great defense and is learning how to play the post position quite well. His attitude is awesome and is a pleasure to coach. Connor played hard and grabbed a rebound and a steal showing he is learning to be more aggressive and confident on the floor.

Game3 Recap: BC 42 - Bell. Christian 26 (WIN)  1-2 Record

The Green Team boys showed great improvement and notched our first win of the season against Bellevue Christian on Monday. Our defense has improved tremendously. We had 18 steals this game and are averaging 15 per game which is excellent. Also our free throw shooting was excellent hitting 16 for 23 (70%). But we also had 22 turnovers and averaging 24.3 per game which is very poor and needs improvement. Overall, I am very proud of how we are improving and representing Bear Creek. GO GRIZZLIES!!!

Total Player Highlights (notable performances): Matthew is getting better and better with every game. His defense was solid and grabbed 2 rebounds and even made a steal. Keep it up Matthew! Bouke had some good outside shot looks in the game, these will begin to fall in future games. His 2 rebounds and steal were also very helpful to the team. Jason tied for second most points on the team with 8 and was much better on defense tonight. I guarantee he will begin to hit a bunch of three point shots very soon. Donny again led all scorers with 14 points hitting one three point shot. His 4 steals also led the team and earned him another Milkshake award. Jace is showing some outstanding point guard skills as he not only scored 8 points but also dished 5 assists and grabbed 7 steals, both team leading and earning him two more Milkshake awards.


Game2 Recap: BC 42 - Overlake 54 (LOSS)  0-2 Record

The Green Team played our hearts out against an aggressive Overlake team today but in the end lost our second game of the season. The good news is that each player is playing hard and improving with each game. Overlake could not stop our point guards in the first half as we almost scored at will. But credit Overlake's guards with great passes inside to wide open players for layups. Our efficiency rating for this game was .75 which earns us a "Fair" rating. We will be working on defense and limiting turnovers again in tomorrows practice. We are a good team and I look forward to Monday's game vs Bellevue Christian for our boys to show just how good. GO GRIZZLIES!

Player Highlights (notable performances):

Donny reduced his turnovers almost in half this game and tied for leading scorer. He is proving to be very difficult to stop on offense. Travis put in another solid workman-like performance today. He continues to improve and learn. He pulled in another 5 rebounds and was very physical inside. Jonah was very aggressive snagging 5 rebounds and he earned a milkshake award for his 4 steals. I am expecting a breakout scoring game from him very soon. Jace had another very balanced game tying with Donny for top scorer of the game, dishing 5 assists and making 4 steals. The two latter stats earned him two more Milkshake awards Jordan led all players with 7 rebounds earning his first Milkshake award 


Game1 Recap: BC 60 - Bush 61 (LOSS)  0-1 Record

Our Green Team boys made Bear Creek proud tonight showing a never quit attitude. Unfortunately we fell to Bush by only 1 point but our ability to come back many times after being down by as many as 10 points shows a toughness we will need. For a first game, it was a great one. The intensity level was that of almost a playoff game. Our outside shooting was very strong but need improvement on converting layups and put-backs after rebounds. Missing 13 missed free throws also makes it hard to win games but we will improve that stat I am sure. Overall I was very proud of all the players. Our next game with Overlake on Thursday is going to be great as well. GO GRIZZLIES!

 Player Highlights (5 notable performances): Jace played a great game at the point showing good leadership and filled the stat sheet, leading the team with 10 rebounds and 11 assists and added 4 steals! His rebound and assist totals earned him 2 Milkshake Awards. Jace's "Efficiency Rating" for the game was off the charts high with 2.17 (anything over 1.50 is excellent). Jordan played his heart out today grabbing 7 rebounds (tied for 2nd on team) and scored 7 points. His defense was strong and he overcame a brief sickness to return and play hard at the end. Jordan's "Efficiency Rating" was 1.40 (Very Good). Travis was the surprise of the game for me. He plays with passion and brought huge effort today. His 5 rebounds and 2 steals along with aggressive defense helped the team come back to compete for the win. Donny had the hot hand today hitting for 33 points and shooting 63% from the field and 86% from the free throw line (all excellent numbers). His 5 steals earned him a Milkshake Award. Donny's "Efficiency Rating" was also high with 1.52 (excellent). We look forward to seeing how Donny improves throughout the season. Connor impressed me at how he is improving. From the first day of practice to the first game we have seen such great improvement and we look forward to seeing how he does through the season.
