Sizz Game 6 - Player of the Game - Alex Flake


Our player of the game for our game versus Dale Crampton is Alex Flake. He scored 6 points and had 6 rebounds in the game tonight. He is a real leader of our team. He has really stepped up this season and done a great job running our offense. I can't tell you how many assists he had in the game but he always is looking to set up his fellow teammates with good looks at the basket. His defense at the top of our zone is a big reason why we get so many steals and fast break baskets. He is a super kid and very coachable. Great job Alex, we are very proud of you!




Sizz on fire in 31-12 win over Dale Crampton!


Early on it looked as if we might score 60 points in this game. Except for one small problem, we had trouble hitting our layups early on in this one. We came out and executed perfectly what we had worked on the night before in practice. We were getting layups or short jumpers on most trips down the floor. We finally got things going as Alex Flake and Luke Maxwell combined to score 9 points in the quarter. Our defense was smoothering as usual and did not allow Dale Crampton a single basket for the entire 1st quarter. I think they only got off two shots in the quarter. They must have felt like we had 10 defenders on the floor at one time. After one quarter of play, we held a 9-0 lead.

The 2nd quarter things did not get any better for Dale Crampton. Blake Forsgren was sitting his fellow teammates up with easy baskets. Presley Chitwood and Jacob Brown would both sink a couple of baskets to extend our lead to 14-2. Josh Rashidi then knocked down a jumper from the wing and Blake would do the same. Dale Crampton did manage to hit a jumper in the quarter but this one was out of hand by the half at 20-2.

We let all the kids play a quarter each in the second half and we kept the defensive pressure on. We had 6 different players score in the first half, so our goal was to get the other 4 players baskets in the second half. Lilly Gilbert would knock down a long jumper and Kenna Dale would hit a free throw to extend our lead to 25-8 by the end of the 3rd quarter. Two more down and two left. We tried for several minutes to get Jaxon Cox a basket and he got off some good shots, but just couldn't get one to go down. In the final quarter we worked hard to get Derek Chitwood a basket and he was able to score with a couple minutes left in the game. We would end the game with 9 different players scoring in the game. That was the best part of the game for me. I love the way we are getting everyone involved in the offense. We would move to 6-0 overall and 3-0 in league play with the 31-12 win over Dale Crampton. It was once again a total team effort. Every player we put in the game did some really good things tonight and I could not be prouder of them. Great job Sizz!

Sizz Game 5 - Player of the Game - Luke Maxwell



Our player of the game for our game versus Preferred Office is Luke Maxwell. He really had a great game tonight against Preferred. He finished the game with 4 points and 9 big rebounds. He also played great on the defensive end of the floor. Luke has really stepped up this year and become one of the leaders of our team. He always gives 110% and is a very coachable and fun kid. Great job Luke, we are very proud of you!






Sizz moves to 5-0 with 31-11 win over Preferred!


Well we had a little rust from the long Christmas break, but we got it shook off pretty quick in our game tonight versus Preferred. Like always we came out in our smoothering defense and made life tough on Preferred Office. They did jump out to a 5-1 lead but that lead would be short lived. Jaxon Cox knocked down a free throw and Alex Flake would score a basket from the wing. Luke Maxwell was a beast on the glass in the opening quarter, giving us several second chance basket opportunities. Luke would score on a fast break layup to give us a 7-5 lead. Lilly Gilbert then knocked down a long jumper from the wing and things were clicking now. Jaxon Cox and Kenna Dale really played great defense in the paint and kept Preferred from getting many offensive rebounds. Alex would then score again in the quarter and after the first 6 minutes of play we held a 11-5 lead.

The 2nd quarter we turned up the defensive pressure even more. Presley Chitwood was awesome at the top of our zone. The poor guards for Preferred looked like a deer in headlights as Presley, Blake Forsgren and Josh Rashidi were all over them as soon as they crossed half court. Derek Chitwood and Jacob Brown did a really good job in the paint, keeping Preferred from getting shots off inside. Blake would score inside to extend our lead to 13-5. Jacob Brown then did what he does best, score off an offensive rebound and the rout was on. Blake would score again before the half and we would head into halftime with a 17-5 lead.

The 3rd and 4th quarters we kept the pressure on Preferred. Josh Rashidi would score and Blake would also knock down a jumper to extend our lead to 21-5. We held Preferred scoreless for over 10 straight minutes as we built our big lead. They would finally get back on the board, but we would answer with another basket from Lilly to give us a 27-9 lead by the end of the 3rd quarter. The final quarter we would make sure all the kids played equal minutes and we would coast in for a 31-11 win. We once again had 7 players score in the game. That's the second game in a row that has happened. I love it when it's like that. Gets everyone involved and makes them feel good about themselves. The win moves us to 5-0 on the season and 2-0 in league play. It was our 12th league win in a row. Our last loss in league play came back on January 13, 2015, when we lost 34-32 to Graduate Sales. And yes, I am a nerdy stat guy :)
