Boys varsity basketball preview: Lowell and Cedar Springs

The Rangers enter their final two games of the regular season with a bitter taste in their mouth after getting blown out at home by rival Forest Hills Northern 73-43. The Rangers are now 11-6 on the season and 6-4 in the OK White. Two very winnable games remain, as they host the Lowell Red Arrows tonight and travel to take on the Cedar Springs Red Hawks tomorrow.

The Rangers will finally get the chance to host Lowell; this game was originally scheduled for Jan. 15, but inclement weather has pushed the game all the way back to tonight. The Red Arrows come into this one at 6-11 on the season and have three wins in conference play. They swept Greenville and beat Ottawa Hills to secure those three conference wins.                   

In the first meeting between these two teams just eight days ago, the Rangers narrowly escaped Lowell with a 56-55 victory. FHC turned the ball over 25 times in that game, roughly 43% of its possessions. Junior point guard Jimmy Scholler was a savior for the Rangers, as he finished the game with 24 points, 2 rebounds, 5 assists, and 2 steals. If Jimmy can have another big game, the Rangers will have a good chance to send the seniors out the right way on Senior Night.                       

The Cedar Springs Red Hawks will come into Thursday’s matchup with a record of 5-10 and have two conference wins. One of those wins came thanks to their star guard TJ Cooper hitting a three-pointer at the buzzer to beat Ottawa Hills. The Red Hawks also defeated Lowell by 15 in their other conference win.

In the first matchup between these two teams, the Rangers had their way with the Red Hawks on both sides of the floor. FHC held Cedar Springs to just 38% percent shooting from the field. Junior guard Mitch Wilkinson and senior forward Dan Deindorfer combined for 38 points and 10 rebounds to pace the Rangers in their victory.

In the last game against Cedar Springs, it was Jimmy who stole the show. He had just 2 points in the game but set a school single-game record with 13 assists. If Jimmy plays another good game, FHC should end the regular season with a win.
