The Lakeview varsity girls basketball team had two scrimmages: one on Nov. 27 against Michigan Collegiate and the other on Nov. 30 against Port Huron Northern to help prepare them for their first game on Dec. 4 against Eisenhower.  These scrimmages helped the team to determine what aspects of their game to focus on prior to their game.

Girls varsity coach Joe Charrette isn’t the only one who looks for things to work on.

Team captain Nicole Austin, ‘17 stated, “The team is ranked very high so it was difficult for us, but it showed us what we need to work on.”

Both scrimmages showed low and high points for the team as a whole and for individual players.

Charrette said that he liked the way his team started to calm down and just play basketball towards the end of the scrimmage.

“When we settled down and played basketball I thought that was a great thing to watch,” Charrette said.

Charrette will rely on Austin as the main ball handler to take charge of the team.

“We’re going to keep it in Nicole Austin’s hands right now because she doesn’t turn the ball over and she is doing a lot of good things,” stated Charrette.

Charrette also stated, “Until our other guards become more confident and take care of the ball we are going to keep it in her hands.”

As for the low points of the scrimmage, Charrette is looking for better attitude and effort from his team.

“They must have great attitude and great effort otherwise we’re not going to be successful,” stated Charrette.

With the season approaching fast, the girls varsity basketball team will look to highlight these aspects of their game in practice to develop and hopefully have a successful season.
