The Remsen St. Mary’s boys basketball team faced a tough test with sixth-ranked and unbeaten West Lyon at the Tyson Events Center on Thursday night. That tough test ended in a 56-38 loss to the Wildcats.
The Hawks got off to a really good start leading the way through one quarter with a 16-15 advantage. Co-head coach Justin Ruden says the guys looked forward to getting the opportunity to play on a big stage.
The hot start was sparked by 11 first-quarter points from Collin Homan who was getting things going in the paint and from the perimeter. Coach Ruden says the best part came from his guys not forcing it to Homan but instead letting it come naturally through the offense.
As the game wore on, it was clear that West Lyon had the upper hand. Coach Ruden says the Hawks were making relaxed plays allowing the Wildcats to pounce on them often.
The Hawks are now 3-2 with the loss. Coach Ruden says the guys can not let themselves fall behind like that again. He says the guys need to be thinking a few seconds ahead to get the most out of the game.
Remsen St. Mary’s has a back-to-back matchup with Hinton in Hinton. West Lyon is now 7-0 on the season.
