The 8th grade Niles Vikings Boys Basketball team was excited to take on a talented team from Mishawaka, John Young. Niles started off slow down at 8, but they regrouped and had a 5 point lead at half, 29-24. Grayson Dulworth and Nathan Watkins controlled the paint on offense and defense. At half, Grayson had 9 and Nathan had 12. Niles continued their success in the third and built a 10 point lead. This was lead by two big threes from Isaiah Stephens and Michael Borst. The fourth quarter started with a management struggle as 4 Vikings had 3 or more fouls. Two players ended up fouling out. John Young rallied and outscored Niles 16 – 4 in the fourth. The heartbreaking lose provided a good learning experience for the boys. We need to finish games strong. Our play-in for the tournament is against Lakeshore.
