One team — St. John’s — is still in the running for a conference title.
The other — Jefferson — is seeking to build toward the post-season.
Both hope to take another step in the next few days in league matchups Friday.
The Blue Jays (13-4, 6-1 Midwest Athletic Conference) host league front-runner New Bremen (17-3, 7-1 MAC) Friday night, while Jefferson (4-14, 2-5 Northwest Conference) heads to Bluffton (8-11, 2-5 NWC) that same night.
ST. JOHN’S/NEW BREMEN
Blue Jay coach Aaron Elwer hopes his team can continue its strong play as of late, including Friday night’s 57-38 blowout of Versailles on the road.
“We’ve been playing very well. The kids have worked hard and bought into what we’re trying to do on both ends of the floor,” he noted. “We have the scouting report and game plan we put in at the beginning of the week and these kids basically have executed it very well. Things are starting to come together. We had the veteran leadership back to build around but now the kids that were new to the varsity have gained valuable experience. We’re all getting on the same page more and more and that has helped our effort on both ends; you can see it in the confidence we are playing with.”
