Jeffs Basketball gives up loss to Centennial at home

Jeff Basketball lost 50-32 to Centennial at home on Tuesday, December 11. This brought their overall win-loss record to an even 3-3 on the season.

Some players believed a combination of factors led to this loss as opposed to one set thing. Senior Isaac Robertson noticed a few areas that needed to be revisited.

“I think our team could improve on guarding the ball in transition,” Robertson said. “We also need to do a better job rebounding and limiting our opponents to one look at the hoop. I think we could’ve come out of halftime with more energy and been more ready for the energy that they brought in the second half.”


Isaac Robertson ’19 takes his aim at the free throw line after being fouled. “I think we played well in the first half,” Robertson said. “We were running our offense well and getting decent looks at the hoop.”

Other players had their own input. These things along with other ideas were mentioned. Dalton Petersen ’20 had his respective to-do list in order to better the team.

“[The Jeffs need to start] trying to get to the rim more, talking more, [and] playing as one,” Petersen said.

With a game against Crete on the horizon, the Jeffs will look to continue working on this along with any other areas in need of improvement. The Friday match will determine whether the Jeffs can see their record climb over the .500 mark again.


Bret Cole ’20 squares off against a Centennial player as he decides where to go with the ball. Cole and the rest of the Jeffs are back in action at home against Crete on Friday.

“I hope to see the team have more energy and enthusiasm on the court,” Robertson said. “We have to have that no matter who we are playing in order to be as successful as we want to be.”
