REETHS-PUFFER HIGH SCHOOL: 41
The Dux used a defensive-focused first quarter to hold off the Reeths-Puffer JV team. After one quarter, the Dux led 17-3 and never looked back, ultimately winning the game 53-41.
"We challenged our guys to come out with intensity to start our game, and they did just that," Coach Ray said. "Our practice yesterday was intense, and our players rose to the challenge. Now, our next step will be learning to maintain that intensity throughout the entire 32 minutes of a game."
Myles Steffen (2024) led the way with 21 points, including a perfect 4/4 from 3-point range.
"We have been pushing Myles's decision-making as he makes the jump from middle-school basketball to JV basketball. It's a different level, especially for a point guard, but he has been so coachable and willing to do the little things that we need him to do to help our team win," Coach Ray said. "This game, things started to seemingly click, and he showed what he has the potential to do when playing with poise and confidence. We are excited to see his continued growth."
The JV Dux will be back in action on Tuesday, February 23 against cross-path rival Zeeland East. Tip-off will be at 5:30pm, with freshman starting at 4pm, and varsity to follow at 7pm. The games will also be streamed on the NFHS Network (check the Zeeland West Athletics social media for the link).
