The Seymour boys’ basketball team came out on top against Ashwaubenon on Nov. 20.
The Thunder beat the Jaguars at home 75-56.
“I thought it was a good first game,” said Seymour head boys’ basketball coach Jon Murphy. “We only had five day practice, so wasn’t real smooth.”
Senior player Trent Blake had a great night leading the team on scoring.
“Trent Blake had monster game with 32 points,” Murphy said. “He’s our loan senior and we are expecting great things out of him.”
Riley Murphy had 13 points for the night and coach Murphy said the rest of the points were split pretty evenly across the other players on the team.
Coach Murphy said Rhett Driessen and Peyton VanDeHei had good nights on defense.
Looking ahead, Murphy said the team needs to find a good balance offensively and defensively. This will help the team throughout the rest of the season.
“Our goal is to be competitive with everybody at tournament time,” Murphy said. “We have a lot tougher schedule coming up, so we will have our work cut out for us.”
