Basketball Playoff Preview
By Reilly Manz
“… Confidence, strength and heart,” said freshman Armand Cartwright concerning the key to winning the basketball State playoffs. After waiting an entire season, the Lahser Knight’s men’s basketball team will finally be entering the playoffs this March. With an opening game on the 7th against Detroit Country Day, the Knights have a tough schedule ahead of them. The 2011 Country Day team has a starting lineup full of impact players that will surely make it tough on the Knights lineup. Starting forward Andrew Gikas (sophomore) says “Certain players will have to step up to the challenge in order to defeat D.C.D. We’re [gonna] have to work hard in practice and play even harder in the game. If we do that, we’re [gonna] win. Go Knights!” Senior forward B.J. LaVallis also says “It could go either with a positive attitude and the right mindset!
The predicted starting lineup for the playoff game includes senior point guard Bryant Charters, senior forward B.J. LaVallis, sophomore Guard Martez Jones, sophomore forward Andrew Gikas, and freshman Yante Maten. Be sure to go out and support your Knights!
