Noah Burr comes up big for boys freshman basketball in a 78-63 victory over Ottawa Hills


Guard Noah Burr showed out this past Tuesday at Ottawa Hills for the boys Freshman basketball team. The Rangers defeated the Bengals 78-63 in an intense conference battle.

After working hard throughout the last couple weeks of practice, Noah Burr earned his first start of the season and he made the most of it.

“Noah did everything right today,” Head coach Adam Monroe said.

He was a key role in the Rangers defense, controlling to the middle of the floor. 

“[He] started his first game and he took advantage of it. Running the top spot of a new defense, this middle, in our press break, and his constant communication with his teammates. There isn’t a negative thing I could say,” Monroe said.

Levi Mckenzie and Timothee Larmande both had massive games as well combing for 50 points, Levi had 26 and Timothee had 24. 

The boys implemented a new defense this week showing a 1-3-1 half-court trap defense. It proved to be extremely effective and coaches Adam Monroe and Matt Ellis plan to stick with it for the remainder of the season. 

This win puts the boys into a solo second place in the conference standings with a 9-1 record, 13-3 on the season. 

On Thursday the boys face off against Forest Hills Northern. This is a must-win game to keep a share of the conference championship alive.
