Maumee went up against a truly great team in Northview. With ALL-Toledo player of the year last year in Sean Craig, who scored 26 points and 9 rebounds in only three-quarters of play, Northview just put a showing of pure basketball on display last night defeating Maumee 78-31. Northview made 72% of their shots and just played an excellent game.
Coach Osier Notes
“Our team played their hearts out, the whole game. They just went up against a true beast tonight in Northview. We played hard and battled. I was proud of that. We are just coming back from a 2 week lay off and are in the middle of 8 games in 13 days. Mistakes are bound to happen. Missed shots are inevitable as I believe we shot under 30% for the game and they shot over 70%. But it is good to be on the court, and we are a family. Due to Covid, Maumee’s schedule is even more difficult than in previous years. As Maumee has now played 8 of its 10 games against D1 competition. No other team in our District (Lake District) can make that claim. 80% of our games are against D1 schools. Other teams in our district have as low as zero games against D1 and maybe 2 or 3 games this year. Not an excuse but a reality. Therefore, I love that our boys lace them up and play hard.
Maumee was led in points by Cole Graetz with 15 points and Michael Pacer with another 10 points and 8 rebounds.
Maumee JV team improved to 8-2 with a comeback win.
