The long ride on the struggle bus continues for the Great Lakes basketball team, as they have now fallen to 0-13 through a series of blowouts and disappointments. The team are yet to score 70 points in a game, and are without several key players due to injuries and ineligibility.
“The basketball team will win two of the three games this weekend,” says “Michael Vickers, “we have a young team so the small things are getting us right now, but we’re thirteen games into the season, we have to change now.”
“We’re playing NAIA teams that are nationally ranked," says coach John Piercefield, "we’re playing way above our pay grade, we’ve got four or five guys down. If we learned from the things that we do, playing these teams that are excellent, then the objective would be that we keep that same kind of intensity. We’ve got guys injured, but we should have them back by the time the league season starts.”
The Lakes have played one game in the conference so far this season, a loss to Grace Bible College on November 12th.
The Crusaders will play three games this weekend in their conference, in the Tip-Off Tournament at Kuyper College.
