Brainerd Boys Basketball Looking To Bounce Back From Early Adversity


I WILL BE BACK WITH YOUR>>>THE BRAINED BOYS BASKETBALL TEAM HAS STARTED THE YEAR WITH A ONE AND FOUR RECORD. ALL OF THOSE FOUR LOSSES HAVE COME TO TEAMS WITH A 500 OR BETTER RECORD AND THE WARRIORS HAVE ALSO FACED SOME ADVERSITY OFF THE COURT. HOWEVER AS CHAZ MOOTZ TELLS US, THE WARRIORS AREN’T MAKING ANY EXCUSES AND ARE HOPING TO PEAK TOWARDS THE END OF THE SEASON.>>A 1 IN 4 RECORD ISN’T THE START THAT THE BRAINERD BOYS BASKETBALL TEAM WAS HOPING FOR. A MIXTURE OF PLAYING SOME TOUGH COMPETITION, SOME EARLY INJURIES, AND AN OUTBREAK OF INFLUENZA B WHICH KEPT TWO CENTERS OUT IN THE WARRIOR’S PREVIOUS GAME HAS BROUGHT A LOT OF EARLY ADVERSITY. HOWEVER SECOND YEAR HEAD COACH CHARLIE SCHOECH IS STILL CONFIDENT IN HIS TEAM.>>I LIKE THE VERSATILITY OF OUR TEAM. WE HAVE A LOT OF GUYS WHO ARE, YOU KNOW, IN THAT 6’3 TO 6’6 KIND OF RANGE. OFFENSIVELY THAT GIVES US VERSATILITY. THEY ARE ATHLETIC >>THAT IS SOMETHING THAT CAN’T BE TAUGHT AND THE WARRIORS PLAN TO USE IT TO THEIR ADVANTAGE.>>WE HAVE A REALLY ATHLETIC TEAM. WE ARE ATHLETIC THAN MOST OF THE TEAMS WE PLAY. THE COACH LIKES US TO PUSH THE BALL. WE HAVE A LOT OF JUMPERS. OFFENSIVE MISMATCH WITH LIKE OWEN OR CAM OR EVEN BEN TOO BECAUSE BEN IS A BIG KID. WE USUALLY PUT THEM DOWN THE BLOCK, IF WE SEE AN OFFENSIVE MISMATCH AND KIND OF SCORE OFF THAT BASICALLY.>>EVEN THOUGH THE BRAINERD BOYS BASKETBALL SEASON HAS BEEN ROUGH SO FAR, THE WARRIORS KNOW IT’S ALSO A LONG SEASON AND ONE THEY HOPE TO BE PEAKING AT COME FEBRUARY AND MARCH.>>CLIMB THE LADDER ONE STEP AT A TIME AND NOT LOOK WHAT’S WAY AHEAD OR WHAT’S BEHIND YOU. LOOK THE NEXT GAME AHEAD OF YOU TO CLIMB TO THE TOP.>>THE COACH SAID AT THE END OF THE GAME LAST NIGHT, HE WOULD TRADE ALL THE WINS AND LOSSES IN NOVEMBER AND DECEMBER FOR WINS IN JANUARY AND FEBRUARY.>>WE’VE BEEN IMPROVING GAME BY GAME. AND AS LONG AS THAT CONTINUES, I’M — YOU KNOW, WE’RE GOING TO LIKE WHERE WE’RE AT COME MARCH.>>REPORTING IN BRAINERD, CHAZ MOOTZ, LAKELAND NEWS.>>BRAINERD WILL BE BACK IN ACTION THIS WEEKEND.
