Boys Varsity Basketball vs. OPEN

Game Date
Mar 1, 2024

Fremont varsity boys won their second consecutive district championship on Friday night vs Newaygo 50-45.  It was an awesome environment to play in.  Fans and students from both schools packed the Fremont gym and were treated to a great game.  Newaygo got out to a fast start leading 10-3 in the first couple minutes of the game.  After that, I thought our defense really picked up and we held them to only 9 points for the rest of the half and led 24-19 at halftime.  We played great in the third quarter outscoring Newaygo 16-7 and led 40-26 after three.  We did a good job of taking time off the clock in the fourth quarter and forced them to foul us.  Unfortunately we went only 8-16 from the line in the quarter and Newaygo hit some unbelievable shots to make the game close down the stretch.  Chaz Miller iced the game by making two big free throws with five seconds left.  Our defense was excellent for the second game in a row and that was the difference in the game.  We are working so hard and communicating well on that end of the floor right now.  I am so proud of these boys for how they have come together as a team this week.  We've worked through a lot as a team this year, and to have it all finally come together at the right time is great to see.  We had very balanced scoring again which is when we are at our best.  Gavin Richards had his second double-double of the tournament with 11 points and 10 rebounds.  Chaz Miller finished with 12 points and 4 steals.  Will DeBlake had 12 points and 6 rebounds.  Ben Mellema had 8 points and Kyler DeKuiper had 6.
