Game Recap

TK squared off against GR Christian for the third time this season. The pace of the game started off in favor of the Trojans, but things slowly slipped away as the game wore on. The Eagles are a strong team who run the floor very well, have great outside shooters, and a front court of 6’7″ and 6’8″. They pound the ball inside whenever you defend the arc and shoot it from deep when you double at the post. Not to mention they rebound and defend like crazy. We knew it would be a tough road to travel going in. TK’s Matt Lark led everyone in scoring with 20 points. Matt is the type of guy who would have rather put a goose egg and got the win against an opponent like Christian, but it wasn’t meant to be. He had an amazing career at TK. Matt is one of 9 seniors who graduate this year and played their last game as a Trojan. Pete Williamson, Levi Thaler, Gabe Kruisenga, Matt Walsh, Andrew Possett, Greg Ondersma, Spencer Irvine, and Keros Bennett all wrapped up their high school basketball careers last night. They are a close bunch of guys on and off the court, which made it easy for me to coach. The relationships that were already in place combined with the new ones formed made this one of the most enjoyable seasons I’ve ever been a part of.
