Lely JVs close with third tourney titleIn their third tourney championship, the JVs trailed by as much as 12 points in the game.
But they wouldn’t be denied, rallying at the end, winning on a three-point shot by Will Bott.
The team finished with a 24-1 record, with the only loss coming in its third game.
Coach Fritz Jacques said center Cliff Millien was the key to the game, scoring 26 points, grabbing 18 rebounds and blocking seven shots.
Jacques was pleased with his team’s play and getting to coach them in the regular season. He thinks Bott and Millien have a chance to move up to varsity, but also said that the varsity team is very solid.
They (varsity) are a young team too and I may have all my team back,” he said.
“It is almost scary how good both teams can be. I see Lely coming back to being one of the dominant varsity teams.”
