Jimmy Scholler leads FHC JV Basketball past EGR 55-47

Jimmy Scholler filled the stat sheet and made his defenders look foolish while doing so.

FHC (7-0) was in control for most of the game, as they defeated EGR 55-47. After a back and forth first quarter, FHC jumped out to a ten point lead and never looked back. Throughout the game, FHC dominated the glass. Players like Tate Hallock and Joshua Wise were strong on the offensive boards, giving FHC multiple second chance opportunities. The Rangers also had strong play from freshman Mitchell Wilkinson, who recorded 2 blocks, and Adam Tellier, who had 10 points and 3 steals.

The second half was the Jimmy Scholler show. Every possession, he seemed to make an impact whether it was scoring or passing. He continually attacked the basket and drew fouls or kicked it out to open teammates. Jimmy scored 11 points and had 5 assists in the second half alone. Halfway through the fourth quarter, Jimmy used a hesitation move to break two defenders on his way to an easy layup.

Jimmy has no problem scoring, but he said he would have rather recorded more assists.

“I would rather pass,” Jimmy said. “It feels better to get everyone else involved in the game.”

FHC pulled away from EGR during the second quarter. The Rangers outscored the Pioneers 18-8 and went into halftime with a 10 point lead. Players like Jimmy and Tate were able to find open teammates for scores. FHC was also aggressive defensively. They recorded two blocks and two steals in the third.

“Our greatest strength is that we push the ball hard. We run transition really well, it’s something we set ourselves to do.”

— Adam Tellier

The first quarter ended at 10-10, but it was clear that FHC was in control. The Rangers were all over the boards, racking up four offensive rebounds in the first. Mitchell Wilkinson played well in the first, recording two points, a block, and an assist.

“We’ve been working on offensive rebounding a lot,” head coach James Telman said. “We do a drill where the guys are fighting for the rebound. I think we rebounded well because of how long and hard we’ve worked at it.”

Adam Tellier has lofty goals for the rest of his teams season, as they are off to a good start.

“Our real goal is to go 20-0 and win a conference championship,” Adam said. “I think we’re setting ourselves up pretty good to achieve it.”
