Game Date

Score
: 53
ZEELAND EAST HIGH SCHOOL: 41

The Dux took on the Chix last night in the first round of the Bird Bowl for basketball in 2023.  It was a tight game throughout the first quarter with two guys doing nearly all the scoring for their teams.  Lane Risdon had all 10 points for the Chix in the first and Luke Bakker had seven of the Dux 12 points.  The game stayed tight throughout the second quarter with the Dux taking a 25-20 lead at the half.  The Dux Had a big third quarter from Merritt Alderink scoring 8 points as the Dux made a run to stretch the lead to over 10 points at one time, but the Chix were able to cut it to 8 at the end of the third.  The Dux struggled to put the Chix away while struggling from the free throw line, but completed the win by a final score of 53-41.  Coach Klyn told reporters after the game that he felt, "This was the most mature win of the last two years.  We weren't clicking on all cylinders on offense, but we continued to play under control and competed on the defensive end of the court."  He also said, "Players like Brady Westfield, Orion Yant, and Lincoln Jipping did a great job all week preparing us for the Chix style of play and made a huge difference in the win tonight."  The Dux will host the Holland Dutch on Tuesday night in the Swamp.  The Dux are now 6-1 overall and 1-0 in conference.

Luke Bakker (14), Merritt Alderink (13), Myles Steffen (8), Deklen Klamt (7), Trevor Wallar (5), and Trenten Bolhouse (3)
