As defending state champs, Lowry has their mind set on working towards another championship, but it won’t be an easy road.
Their first playoff game came Tuesday against the Truckee Wolverines and the Bucks came out on a mission to finish the Wolverines fast; building a 13-point lead by the end of the first quarter.
Lowry stayed after it all the way to the end of the first half with the score 34-15 Lowry.
Coming out after halftime they really wanted to get their offense going. The Bucks came out slow but halfway through the third, Josh Watterson dunked on a missed shot that got the whole team fired up. Coming back on their next offensive possession, Josh Shaver threw an alley-oop on a back pick for Josh Watterson who threw it down again. The building was electric. Ending the third quarter leading by 22 the Bucks looked to finish the game off strong.
The Bucks ended the fourth quarter by scoring 23 and winning the game 70-32.
Jesse Studebaker said, “We really came out looking to play a good all-around game. We are going to look at what we need to work on for Sparks and be ready to play.”
The Buck’s next game will be against Sparks on Friday.
