Crimson Tide Comes to the Swamp

Lakeview Gators hosted the Minden Crimson Tide on Nov. 27. The game was a rematch to a battle in the Lakeside Tournament where Lakeview prevailed. Minden, in the previous game, was able to slow down the Lakeview speed.

The second game was a totally different game in terms of speed. Lakeview was able to speed Minden up and of course create turnovers. Minden did a great job of not turning the ball over as much as most Lakeview opponents. Lakeview was still able to speed the game up off made baskets and determined the outcome early in the third quarter.

Once again, Coach Williams got to see what his young players could do. Lakeview emptied the bench in the 4th quarter.

“They are getting a lot of game experience early,” he said, referring to his young players. “Hopefully as the season progresses, they can start contributing to our already deep rotation. They will definitely contribute next year, which in return helps build tradition at Lakeview.”

Lakeview defeated Minden 64 to 43.
