JAN 6TH, 2017 GRANDVIEW SET TO HOST ST. PIUS IN A BOYS’ BASKETBALL BATTLE (Audio)
(Regional Radio) The Grandview Eagles host the St. Pius Lancers in a small school conference match-up in boys’ basketball tonight on KJFF.
Both teams have struggled this season as Grandview is 1-8 on the year while St. Pius sits at 2-10. The two teams are both very youthful as a whole and have few players that have significant varsity experience.
The Eagles have struggled with injuries this season beginning with the loss of star junior Koby Klaus who suffered a knee injury at the beginning of the year. However, to St. Pius head coach Eric Lawrence, that just means they will get a gritty performance…
St. Pius has a lot of success in recent years in the conference despite struggling this season. Grandview head coach Chris Miller believes the Lancers will present a difficult challenge…
The Lancers pride themselves on the defensive floor, but struggle at times on the offensive end. Sophomores Cameron Krodinger and Jalen Thornton lead the way for St. Pius on the offensive end averaging 8.4 and 7.5 points per game respectively.
For Grandview, they are led by senior Sam Huskey who is averaging 10.9 PPG while grabbing 4.2 rebounds a contest.
Grandview is coming off of a 49-47 loss to Kingston at the Valle Catholic Christmas Tournament while the Lancers fell to Saxony Lutheran 43-21 on Wednesday night.
